The Covid Pandemic saw many home cooks turn entrepreneurs, as they started catering to people in the lockdown with Homemade fresh meals. Sensing an appetising opportunity, Founders Narendra and Sreekanth approached home cooks with adequate infrastructure and other criteria like hygiene, recipes etc.
Soon the idea took definite shape, and in May 2021, “Ghar se Khana” was launched – a first of its kind mobile platform that provides Marketing and Delivery services to Qualified and FSSAI Certified Home Chefs, Cloud Kitchens, Home Bakers.
More importantly, it also provides detailed analytical support to track orders and monitor sales and revenue tracking and forecasting.
A delicious opportunity for the chef and the gastronome!
As a reliable bridge connecting home chefs with food lovers, “Ghar se Khana” has opened new doors for home chefs to take the first step towards entrepreneurship. It has removed two major obstacles like capital investments and the inability to step out of the home.
What is incredible is that a food lover can virtually order food handpicked from recipes across India. North Indian, South Indian, Chinese, Bakery Items, Meals Combo, Breakfast/ Lunch Items, Fresh Drinks, Spices Powder and more. Interestingly, it is so popular that it offers an enticing opportunity to food lovers to try out traditional dishes that have been passed down through generations.
The platform also has made it so popular that customers ordering their favourite food get the freshest of meals. Every “Ghar se Khana” chef, after accepting an order, cooks the food fresh. Refrigerator-stored meals are a big no-no.
Every chef registered with the platform as practice makes sure to communicate with customers to understand their taste and food preferences. Thus, they can offer every customer an authentic and delicious food experience, which meets customer expectations regarding taste, cost, and delivery time. Guided and Supervised by the “Ghar se Khana” team, every chef also has very strict personal hygiene and safety standards in the kitchen.
Exciting times are ahead on the menu!
“In the next five years, we are looking at scaling up and going one notch higher than the “start-up” mode we are currently in. I see us becoming a more extensive company with our chain expanding and in terms of money, more revenue and profit coming into our company.“ says Narendra -Founder.
With steady orders at the moment and seeking a more convenient way to get people to connect faster, the “Ghar se Khana” app under testing has reached a soon-to-be-launch phase. Post-launch, it is expecting many more sign-ups and orders to be processed.
Another plan waiting to be served is a menu to include office lunches and corporate lunches on the platform for regular customers.
Adds Sreekanth -Cofounder “Our vision for our company is growing. The Indian food market is estimated to grow at 9.8 Billion dollars by 2025, and we hope we’re part of that.”
