Driven by the mission to make it easy to eat ‘real food made by real people’, Bristol-based All About The Cooks has created an online marketplace for home-cooks to sell their food to local people.
The company has raised more than £310,000, smashing its target of £275,000.
Since its launch in 2018, the company has paid £30,000 to cooks and are raising to scale to six more cities in the next year. It has 60 community cooks registered who have fulfilled 800 orders.
The company said in its Crowdcube pitch: “Our Bristol pilot has shown that we are really onto something, so we are now ready to start to take All About The Cooks to other cities too…. and that requires some investment. Since community is at the heart of everything we do, equity crowdfunding is the perfect way to that. People who like our vision can back us by investing from as little as £20 to own a piece of our future, and share in our ambitious plans for our community too.”
The company was established by Claire Ladkin, who was named a Regional Winner in Tech Nation’s Rising Stars last December.
