Consumer: More than ever, working professionals are living faster paced and busier lifestyles and have gained a heightened awareness of their health (i.e. the upward trend in organic and vegan diets). Qitchen caters to this 21st century food consumer by: providing a healthy alternative instead of eating fast food every night, where you do not know what is being prepared or how it is being prepared; connecting people and cultures through homemade dishes; helping you save time and money by not having to cook, clean, or go out and buy a meal that is usually unsatisfying and/or expensive; and, helping the local community boost microeconomic conditions through the service sharing economy business model.

In our business model, the consumer does not prepare any meals nor are they bound to choosing from a pre-made selection of meals; rather, they are connected to varieties of freshly made meals, on-demand, based on two input criteria:

i. proximate location (i.e. zip code)
ii. cuisine preference (i.e. Indian, Italian, Thai, Chinese, vegan, etc.).

Based on the consumer’s selection criteria, the application displays nearby cooks who are catering and their personalized menu. The consumer selects the meal type or itemized offerings from the chef and submits an order. Qitchen will allow cooks to take daily or weekly orders and will work with them to minimize logistics costs by utilizing existing distribution channels, delivering in bulk, consolidating routes by territory, and encouraging pick-ups.

As part of Qitchen’s overall mission to create a sustainable shared economy service, we will also integrate a program that provides food provisions to children in need in the South Asia subcontinent for every meal purchased. Qitchen will partner up with the World Food Programme and local charities to facilitate the donation.
