Unexpected visitors at home, and no food? Or your caterer for that party you’ve been planning for so long cancelled last minute? Worry not, FoodCloud has got you covered. Founded by serial entrepreneurs Vedant Kanoi and Shamit Khemka in September this year, FoodCloud is a startup that enables you to order food from professional chefs who work from home.
What is FoodCloud
FoodCloud is not your regular home delivery service, but is a home cooking service. Gourmet food is cooked by professional chefs who have curated special menus with a lot of variety and choice. The best part? You can call the chef and give them your reguirements, if you need anything out of the ordinary! Food pickup and home delivery can be arranged depending on the chef and the quantity of food.
How it works
The website features chefs specializing in various cuisines such as Chinese, Lebanese, Thai, Italian, Rajasthani, Austrian, Mexican, and Greek, to name a few. Go ahead, login to the website and browse by chef or by cuisine. Once you’ve made your selection of food, specify the quantity, and the date by which you want it delivered. Upon checkout, you’ll receive a confirmation of your order, and contact details of the chef incase you want to contact them with special requirements. See, it’s as simple as ABC!
