Foodmario

Foodmario is a platform that connects home chefs with consumers who prefer eating home food.

Overview

Foodmario is a tech platform that connects freelance cooks with customers who prefer eating delicious “home food”, at affordable price points and with the added convenience of delivery. Foodmario is a C2C model.


Vision

Our vision is to infuse home food preparation and delivery into the sharing economy value chain. For this, we believe it necessary to convert the down-time of residential kitchens, non-professional home makers, and those with a love of cooking, into productive hours that can be monetized by using Foodmario. Our platform transforms necessity-driven freelance cooks into entrepreneurs who work from the comfort of their own kitchens or Foodmario’s cloud kitchens, on their own schedules, providing hygienic, high-quality, and specialised meals using Foodmario. Our aim is to ignite a new industry of freelance cooks and “home food” as an alternative to commercial restaurants.
