Zomida is an online platform that makes it easy for people to buy homecooked meals from people in their communities. Our website serves as an online marketplace for homemade food. We help home chefs create and curate their own storefronts. They can post a profile showcasing their menus, experience, and love for cooking.

Eaters can then browse our website and search based on type of cuisine, price, distance, pickup and delivery options, and required advanced notice. They can browse menus and place orders on them, much like they would using Seamless or GrubHub. Or, they can message the chef directly to customize dishes or make special requests. For example, an eater can ask for a dish to be made extra spicy or for the chef to make customized cupcakes for their child’s birthday. Sometimes eaters will order one or two meals, others will order enough dishes for the week or to cater a dinner party. Once the order is confirmed, eaters can pay on the website and either choose to pickup th...

Zomida has two revenue streams: we take a 15% cut off every transaction, and we sell supplies (such as branded Tupperware) to our chefs, much like Etsy sells supplies to its marketplace owners.

Sounds like an amazing idea! Delicious food to come home to after a long day, why not?!

A Brilliant, inspired concept that taps the unlimited, under-utilized resource of home chefs pairing them with time-limited professionals, students and families who desire a delicious, high-quality meal that will evoke a taste of home. I just wish I would have thought of it first!
