Many chefs aspire to own their own restaurants, where they can cook creative dishes that let them explore their culinary freedom. Along with that dream, though, comes logistics and expenses. Starting up a restaurant is no easy feat. Many restaurateurs fail to make a profit in the first couple of years since they simply need to keep afloat and recoup their initial investment.

While this may sound discouraging, it’s not the only way to make your culinary dreams a reality. Thanks to the rise of food delivery apps like Feasti, aspiring chefs and home cooks have a new way to do what they love and grow their businesses without all the traditional challenges of opening a restaurant or starting a catering company. You can cook from home and earn income as a home chef with Feasti.

What’s Feasti All About?

Feasti is a community of chefs and foodies that are looking for an alternative when it comes to food delivery services. Feasti customers can browse the app and search through Feasti’s collection of home chefs who are serving up their favorite dishes and cuisines. Feasti users can purchase a flexible subscription plan for 2, 15, or 30 days and have fresh, homemade meals delivered straight to their homes or workplaces.

Feasti offers everyone the opportunity to have healthy, delicious and nourishing food available at affordable prices. Instead of opting for the value menu at the drive-thru, Feasti offers a fresh option to those looking for convenient meals. On the other hand, Feasti offers home chefs the opportunity to share their culinary passion with the world while building and monetizing their businesses.

So how can chefs get started? Here’s what you need to know to get your business up and running.

Getting Started

The first step to becoming a Feasti HomeCook is to sign up through their website. The great thing about cooking for Feasti is that you can let your favorite cuisines shine through. Home cooks have the freedom to highlight dishes that they grew up loving or those that are a part of their heritage. The purpose of cooking with Feasti is to share the food that you’re most passionate about — all the dishes that really speak to you as a chef — with others.

It’s important to note that all Feasti applicants need to take an accredited food certification exam before they can start cooking and promoting themselves on the platform. This gives Feasti customers the peace of mind that the food they’re ordering is prepared to the highest standards, no matter which chef they select from the platform. Once you pass the food safety course and exam, you’re ready to start setting up your Feasti profile and promoting your business.

Creating Your Menu and Prices

Cooking on the Feasti platform means that you can bring your culinary ideas to life. Feasti is here to support you and act as your sous chef, offering you the help and support you need to get started. There’s no fee to join the platform or download the app. Being a Feasti home chef allows you creativity and control over what you would like to create, but Feasti’s team of experts will offer you tips and advice as you start to conceptualize your menu. Feasti also has a team of trained food photographers that can capture mouthwatering shots of some of your best dishes that you can use to entice customers to your profile.

As a chef, you’ll also have access to Feasti’s database of articles and video tutorials that provide information and knowledge on how to best grow your business. Some of these topics include how to promote yourself and how to go about pricing your menu. Feasti will give you some tips when it comes to pricing, but ultimately, it’s up to you as the chef to decide what to charge. You can also adjust your prices at any time. This is one of the biggest benefits of being a Home Chef with Feasti compared to doing it on your own: you have support when you need it, and access to expert advice.

Feasti’s App for Chefs

Another massive benefit of cooking from home with Feasti is that you can put more of your effort into the creative side of your business while the platform’s app and software handle many of the administrative tasks for you. The powerful tools that are built into the app give you more time to create and focus on your passion, and reduce the time you spend worrying about tasks like phone calls, emails, and payments. Ready? Let’s take a spin through the Feasti platform to see just how it works.

Managing Your Schedule and Customers

After designing your menu and deciding which dishes you would like to offer hungry customers, it’s time to set your schedule to let them know when you’re available. You’re in control of your timetable, so you can choose when you want to cook. You also have the freedom to take a break when you need to. If you know you’re going to be unavailable or need to step away when life gets busy, just log into the app and set your profile to offline mode. This lets Feasti customers know that you’re not available right now but that you’ll be cooking again soon.

Customers can then start to place orders once they see that you’re open for business and ready to cook. You’ll get a notification when you have an order so that you can review the details, such as the portions that are needed and when. The Feasti app lets chefs manage their menus so that you can keep track of each recipe and the ingredients needed for each portion so that nothing ever goes to waste. The app also shows you the customer’s information and how the order should be dispatched to them so that there’s no room for mix-ups when it comes to delivery.


Payment is hassle-free for Feasti chefs since you don’t have to worry about collecting money from customers directly. Connect your bank account to the Feasti app for direct deposit and earn income from home with each order that goes out. Payments are rolling so you’ll start to see your earnings accumulate as they become available. Every two weeks you’ll receive a payout directly into your bank account for any orders made during that pay period.

There are no fees to join Feasti or host your menu, but there is a 10% commission that is taken out of each order, including credit card transaction fees. Using the app, you can check on your earnings at any time.

Building Up Your Brand

Using the Feasti app lets you manage your business and build up your brand in several different ways. There are built-in features that allow you to track your reviews and performance all in one place. There’s no need to keep external books or records if you don’t want to. To attract customers, you can opt in to customizable campaigns or offer coupons, both of which can be tracked and managed on the app. Over time, you can track your revenue and how your business is doing overall.

Tracking this data gives you more insight into what your Feasti customers want. You may start to see emerging trends, like repeat customers or most successful dishes. The app’s dashboard has a number of features and tools that you can explore to discover how to best level up your home chef business.

Remember that the Feasti team is there to help you succeed. If you have questions or doubts, you can reach out to the Cook Support Team by email or text at any time. The Feasti team will get back to you as soon as possible to offer solutions so that you can get back to making magic in the kitchen.
