Finding time to cook is a luxury many people don't have! As a result, many people end up resorting to frozen meals. We believed a digital platform was needed to help those people connect with qualified home chefs. Cook My Grub (CMG) was conceived to provide a healthy & sustainable alternative for people unable to cook wholesome meals at home.
CMG considers people’s cuisine choices and food preferences like Veganism, Vegetarianism, Halal and Gluten-Free. Using cloud technology, AI & ML, each customer is presented with a wide selection of cuisines to choose from. These meals can be ordered on the day or pre-ordered several days or even weeks in advance. For home chefs, we set up their own “virtual restaurant” which gives them the flexibility to decide when, what & how much they cook.
CMG has been featured in various mainstream & industry media like BBC Berkshire Radio, Business Cloud, Public Sector Catering & TechFound. 1300+ meals have been served across Maidenhead, Windsor & Slough.
The funds raised will be used to support further growth by increasing marketing, scaling-up operations and growing the technology teams. Further roll out of the service is planned across additional geographies with launches in Reading, West London, Swindon & Home Counties through 2021. The company's goal is to grow & consolidate the home-cooked food market by organising a currently unorganised sector.
The team got together and leveraged their years of experience from the technology and hospitality sectors to build a platform which would not only provide healthier home-cooked meals but also create employment opportunities for home chefs and caterers running small businesses. We are excited to be creating a new market space by leveraging the advancement of digital technology to deliver value for all the stakeholders involved.
