Homechef is the only online platform in Bangladesh where you can order food online by checking out the recipes first. Over 700 chefs from Dhaka, Chittagong, Khulna and Sylhet are a part of this online platform, with 900+ menus available for home order and 1650+ recipes shared.
HomeChef has given home cooks, especially women, a platform to cook their delicious meals not only for their families, but also for the community as well. The main idea behind HomeChef is to empower women and give them the opportunity to earn some extra income from home.
Take Tanha Zahur for example. Within one year, Zahur has successfully completed 76 meal orders, enabling her to earn more than Tk 1 lakh, while working with HomeChef. Zahur was also the proud chef who got the opportunity to cook and sell her Haleem to famous Bangladeshi cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim and his wife.
HomeChef has made it possible for home cooks to earn some extra money and also share their recipes with everyone, while providing consumers the option to have healthy homemade food anywhere. People can even custom order their menu for events.
HomeChef will be able to employ at least another 5000 home cooks by 2018 and empower over 1 million women by the year 2020, according to estimates. For women, the opportunity to earn extra income by cooking a little extra food when cooking for their own family plays an important role in the domestic economy. For some home cooks, they are living their dreams of starting an eatery through HomeChef.
