Zaycon CLOSED FOR BUSINESS!?!

Is Zaycon Closed for Business? For Good?

I went to the Zaycon website this afternoon to check upcoming sales and was FLOORED to see they Zaycon closed for business!

The Zaycon website has the following closure message . . . 

“It is with deep regret that we inform you that as of today, June 25th, we are suspending business operations.. Zaycon Fresh has put forth monumental efforts to endure recent challenges but conditions are such that this suspension is necessary. Updates will be forthcoming as we are able to provide them.” 

I am so disappointed! I really loved Zaycon Fresh as a company and we’ve been customers for 5+ years. Just last week I picked up 40 pounds of chicken breasts! It was wonderful quality and I was once again, impressed by Zaycon’s product and quality.

It says “suspending business operations” instead of closing. . so I’m not sure if it’s a temporary closure or a long-term closure. I have as much information as you do.

Do you have a pending order for later this year? If you have an order for later this year, and you placed your order with a credit card – I would contact your credit card company ASAP to get a refund. Contact your bank or credit card holder and ask for a refund for non-fulfillment.

I do my best to only recommend companies that I believe are solid and fair. Zaycon Fresh has been such an amazing savings for us for so many years – I’m so disappointed to see them close up shop and go out of business. My biggest hope is that if you have a pending order that you’re able to get a refund from your credit card company and that you aren’t at a loss because of Zaycon going out of business.
