An online marketplace that allows people to buy and sell homemade food. Currently available in Toronto and the GTA.
Home cooks create dishes in their own kitchens, and then post photos and pricing on the web app. People select what they want to eat and pay directly through the app.
Our HomeCooks open their kitchens and post what they’re making to share with users browsing their community. Our chefs are privileged to many benefits, namely, as an independent contractor being able to make a name for themselves in their community and monetize the meals they love to make and earn a handsome 90% from every transaction they make on HomeCooks platforms. Not to mention, our HomeCooks can work part time or full time to compliment their schedule to earn extra money as their own boss. One of the coolest things about being a cook on the HoemCooks network is we connect them with foodies to share their meals with.
Why we do what we do? Why does it matter?
The harsh reality of the food services industry is, no matter how amazing of a cook you are, it is practically impossible for a full time parent or an aspiring chef to open his or her own shop. The barrier to entering the food industry is quite high. We aim to break this barrier and make it simple for home cooks to start selling their delicious food, refine their best recipes and connect with foodies in their community.
Many home cooks encounter similar problems when trying to sell their items. Some of the main problems we have learned from cooks include; lack of platforms to increase customer base and advertise products, legal requirements, delivery constraints and online payment options. We are tackling these problems for home cooks to take over all the hassle, streamline the process and let cooks concentrate on what they love the most. Cooking.
