You hear that right! Foodiac, the marketplace-startup offering high-end professional private chefs, has expanded in the UAE through Turn8. It works like the AirBnB of Chefs: you find a private chef or catering of your choice in the UAE and you get a quote at once.
The platform helps individual chefs do what they love - cooking. While food preparation takes serious effort, Foodiac's role is to take care of their sales and marketing and provide the chefs with sophisticated tools to enhance their business. This, I think, works best for rising chefs and individuals who really love to cook but do not have the luxury to put their names out in the market.“We are bringing the elegance of fine dining to the comfort of your home or event, by offering a unique culinary experience. Foodiac will connect you directly with a handpicked network of the some of the world’s best chefs, right here in the UAE. With backgrounds in top international restaurants, they can delight you with everything from whole foods to haute cuisine and make sure every occasion is tailored to your taste,”Miikka Makio - CEO and Founder of Foodiac
The launch took place at East Wing Gallery in DIFC, and it's a cool start showcasing The Other Hundred photo installation of entrepreneurs all over the world. One reason why I never say no to events at art galleries? I get to see awesome art works and photo gallery.
