About

GRIDCUISINE.COM

So far social market sites are connecting customers and producers in non traditional ways which are disrupting traditional business marketplaces.  Examples of these are AirBnB, Uber, and Amazon.  The business model connects regular people with others who operate as independent contractors.  This allows regular people to become producers instead of those who are utilizing traditional brick and mortar methods to connect people.   Anyone can become an Uber driver, if they meet the qualifications.  Anyone can put their property up for rent and anyone can become a 3rd party seller, via Amazon, Ebay or Etsy.  

This is a proven business Modus Operandi that is successfully integrating with the internet and mobile apps disrupting traditional businesses.  Gridcuisine.com is attempting to develop a web and app presence as well with this business model with food.  What we will do is simply provide a marketplace where users can sell their own food from home.  Imagine being able to order Lasagna at 3am or pick from your own ethnic foods at odd times when there are no restaurants available.  Anyone, who passes the inspection of our team, can post their food on gridcuisine and receive a profit.   Afterwards, users who purchase the items can leave reviews.

 Users can purchase food from their neighbors or from another local area and have it delivered via the current delivery apps (door dash, postmates, uber eats, etc). The site will operate 24 hours and provide a variety of choices for food. Users can specify hours food is available. Specific addresses can be hidden for safety although a general area will be shown. After ordering, users can rate the food purchased (privately and publicly). Site will be similar to Ebay except it will be for local food. Grid cuisine will perform it's own internal inspections and offer or mandate insurance for sellers.   

Funds from Kickstarter will be used to purchase tech support, app and website development, legal consultants and marketing.  

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge in this venture will be in the development of the website and mobile application. Afterwards it will be in the inspections, legal challenges, implementation of delivery mobile apps and establishing insurance for users who sell food. As local laws change from area to area an understanding of the legal landscape is important in establishing a food for hire app.
