Meet another of our Woman Who…StartUp Finalists. Introducing Rebecca Sorusch & Karen Percy, of Yumzee, Finalists in the Woman Who…StartUp Category.
Yumzee is an online platform business that connects guests with hosts/chefs. Think AirBnB meets Come Dine With Me. We want to revolutionise the way people meet, eat and connect—enabling people to enjoy a social dining experience.
The concept is simple—a host/chef creates the menu, sets the terms, gets cooking and starts earning. Guests signs up for a great meal in the comfort of the chef’s or host’s home. Chefs can be anyone from passionate home cooks to hobby chefs to trained professional chefs. They can host a meal in their own homes or partner with a host who provides their home as the venue. They decide how many guests they would like to invite, create a menu, set a price and publish the meal on the website. Guests can search for meals in their area, choose one that suits them, read reviews of the hosts/chefs, book a seat, pay online, and join the host for a fabulous meal.
People arrive as strangers, leave as friends.
Congratulations Rebecca & Karen on being Finalists. Take a look at all of the Finalists.
