We are on a mission to connect busy people with home chefs. Sounds simple, right ? But its hugely insane if you really think about what it means to home chefs, the busy folks and the community at large.
The Home Chefs
They become micro-entrepreneurs. Yes, just like that! They are the heroes of the Mealboat community. Anyone with a passion for food & cooking can become a micro-entrepreneur. They work when they please, quote the price they feel right and get to earn money doing what they love.
The Busy Folks
Their meals are sorted, kids are fed, parties are a hit, AND they have plenty of time. This gained time is spent doing the things they love.
Eating better and Living Smarter!
I personally fall under the ‘busy folks’ category not because I am busy but because I do not have the natural flare for flavors and cooking. Don’t get me wrong, I love food, all kinds of food, love watching master-chef, and scouring the internet for the perfect salad, smoothie or brownie recipe. I love everything about food except cooking it! 🙂
I’ve often wished we had more salads at the table or that my kids were snacking on wholesome til ladoos and carrot sticks instead of Oreo biscuits and Kurkure.
So here are some of the times Mealboat can help you :
Here’s to Mealboat helping us all do what we love.
We’re leaving on a jet plane …
Its been 3 weeks since we started MealBoat.
The beta version of our website went up on 22nd July and we’ve sent initial FB posts calling home chefs to setup their food shops. We’ve recieved an overwhelming response … close to 6000 page views, 1000 unique visitors, 100 subscribers and 12 hosted chefs. WOOT WOOT! And might I add an interview with the local newspaper!!
Thank you all for all the love.
Some of the initial tools that have really helped us make quick progress are Dropbox, MailChimp and Google Apps for Business. And ofcourse Google Analytics … it totally rocks!! The data and analytics they provide is invaluable. Can’t imagine making decisions without it.
