Founded in October 2014, cooked4U is an online platform for home food. Our core competencies are providing home food, convenience and variety of cuisines. The concept of cooked4U was conceived after the founders of the company realized that it is very difficult for busy people to enjoy wholesome home food.
cooked4U is introducing the new concept of “fast home food”. Students, busy professionals and any person who don’t like or know how to cook, end up settling for junk food which costs more than a healthy, and tasty, home meal. cooked4U allows consumers to enjoy convience and variety which are usually two features of junk food, without the junk.
We were approached by the cooked4u team with just an idea, and a few napkin sketches of what they hoped to see. In just under a month, we delivered an MVP which now powers tens of thousands in revenue. This includes all front end design and development, browser testing, and support. As this was a fully customized web application, the backend implements Stripe API for payment processing (weekly subscriptions and order checkouts), as well as Twilio API to send text messages power the logistics and notify delivery drivers automatically when orders were placed. Other features include: Admin dashboard for adding chefs/drivers, company task/goal manager, order histories, metrics, Mailchimp/Mailgun integration, PCI compliance, weekly meal planner, real time updates, customer support ticketing system, and much much more.
Unfortunately it looks like www.cooked4u.com hit the startup graveyard in ~2017 :( after failing to find a sustainable business model.
