Driven by the mission to make it easy to eat ‘real food made by real people’, we have created an online marketplace for talented, trusted home-cooks to sell their delicious home-made food to local people. Since our launch we have paid £30k to cooks and are raising to scale to 6 more Cities in the next year.
Living amongst us, talented people are creating extraordinary food in their own homes, but there’s no trusted route to market for home-cooks who want to sell their food.
So, we created an online place to buy, and sell, home-cooked food from people you can trust.
Unlike faceless takeaways, all our food is pre-ordered from local people and, like Etsy, cooks and buyers make the arrangements between them. We create personal interactions within communities, neighbours and cultures. When you buy from one of our cooks, you share their stories and their passions, as well as delicious homemade food.
Having already taken 800+ orders & paid over £30k to our cooks, we know that people love to support local & want to make conscious decisions about how they eat. We believe the UK Addressable Market to be worth £4.2bn, and with no logistics, we can be highly scalable. We take a modest % fee and are designed to create social impact across communities.
We are hugely ambitious for the future. With proof of concept, the backing of existing investors & corporate investment from Cookpad (recipe platform with 100m users in 70 countries), we are ready to grow. We plan to launch in 6 more cities in 2023 before raising funds to enable further expansion.
All About The Cooks plan to become the go-to place to buy home-cooked food in the UK & beyond. We'd love you to join us in changing the way we eat at home.
