The Chef Come Cook initiative is a start up to promote healthy eating by providing access to personal chefs. The recent trends in home delivery meal kits, has shown people want to make good decisions, but unfortunately, you are not saving anytime making the food yourself. Sometimes you may not be comfortable preparing the food, so Chef Come Cook provides the power to have a personal chef cook a meal for you in your own home.
Chef Come Cook currently allows users the ability to browse meals/dishes provided by chefs based on your area. With this you can customize when and where you want the meal prepared. Chef Come Cook is a platform where you can look at various chefs in your area, and it also allows the consumer to have a safe and fun experience. All the Chefs on Chef Come Cook have been through a background check and are valid to work in the United States.
Some of the first reasons, we started Chef Come Cook is to provide an easy, accessible way to bring the chef to the table. There are many times when you go to a restaurant, and order food and the person who prepares your food, is never rewarded the way the waitress/waiter will be. Most of the time, in the restaurant business a waitress/waiter is making more money then the chef who prepares the meals for people. Here at Chef Come Cook we want to give recognition to the chef for their cooking skills and gives the users first hand experience of that chef's skills.
When you have to adhere to dietary restrictions, such as gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan, it makes your eating experience much better knowing that the meal was made right in your own kitchen with no contaminants. Our vision is to have customers sign up for monthly subscriptions, where a chef would come to your house 3-5 times a week for a month at a time.
We believe the meal plans will help showcase the real contender in the food world. The Chef who prepares the meal is the most important thing in making a meal, without a chef you would have a bunch of ingredients you would have to prepare yourself. So why not have a personal chef take the questions out of the process, and have them come to you for visits that you schedule.
At this current moment, Chef Come Cook has a website, and an Android app, with more funding we want to be able to make an iOS application as well, and provide an interface to make meal plan purchases and submit your own recipes for chefs to make! This will help us to reach our goal of going live in December. Please back us today!
Risks and challenges
The risks with Chef Come Cook, are mostly related to the stranger danger fear question. Chef Come Cook has built a platform to ensure every experience is a safe interaction. We ensure all Chefs are valid to work in the United States, as well as perform thorough background checks.
Another challenge we face is the fact that people might feel like they can't afford a personal chef, so to overcome this notion we allow allow chefs to set their own dish prices which allows a user to browse and select a dish within their budget.
We may not have a lot of customers ordering dishes right now, even though we do have chefs available, because we have to reach out to more people. Hopefully this will help to spread the word about Chef Come Cook. Our social media pages are also a way in which we hope to get out name out there.
One of the first issues we had with chef come cook, is that we thought that one option would be to have the chef cook meals in their home and deliver the meal or have the meal picked up. As we have continued expanding to many other states, we have now realized this model will not work due to cottage laws, so for this reason, we have switched Chef Come Cook's model to have the chef go to the customers house to cook as the only option.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
