Why build a platform for Home Chefs and Bakers?
Updated: Aug 9, 2020
In today's world, it is difficult to come across many areas that haven't been touched by online platforms. Just take into account the many video conferencing and food delivery solutions that have shot into the limelight during this pandemic.
Thanks to today’s food delivery apps, the days of paper menus and restaurant waiting rooms are being left behind. It comes as no surprise that many people prefer having their meals home delivered at the click of a few buttons rather than spending their evenings in front of a stove.
A while ago, our founders identified a gap in the food market: The absence of a food platform for people who crave wholesome, home-cooked meals and bakes.
Since then, we began developing a digital platform that would allow home chefs and bakers to showcase and sell their delicacies to their local communities.
Our aim was simple: We wanted to bridge the gap between hungry diners and home cooks.
Our mission was even simpler - We wanted to create a community of passionate home chefs in our endeavour to spread the joy of home-cooked meals to people all over the UK.
Thus, Cook My Grub was born.
Of course, a lot of chefs may already be using websites or social media to showcase their menus, but what sets Cook My Grub apart is how it goes one step further in empowering them in the truest sense. With features like Order Management, Menu management and Schedule management, chefs will now be able to flick a switch and reach out to a whole new audience.
Cook My Grub takes into consideration the key pain-points usually faced by home chefs and aims to address them through a mobile-first approach.
Some of the key features and advantages of our platform are listed below:
1. Cashless transactions
2. Protection against order cancellations
3. A centralised reviews and rating system
4. The ability to create a library of dishes to sell via Menu management
5. A planner functionality to seamlessly plan out which dishes you want to sell on specific days
