The HomeCook story

Our founders, Tayana & Hassan, discovered this struggle during the COVID-19 pandemic after many of their culinary industry friends were laid off from their jobs overnight. Instantly, their friends went from running successful culinary businesses or working in restaurants to becoming food entrepreneurs and cooking out of their own homes. In the beginning, it was smooth sailing. As their businesses grew, they struggled with cooking in their homes, finding affordable commercial kitchen space, and truly taking their business to the next level.

After listening to their friend's complaints and researching, Tayana & Hassan realized how hard it was to grow in the food industry because of the lack of resources, information, and affordable kitchen space. Everyone felt they were on an island, and Tayana & Hassan wanted to bring them all the resources they needed to join the mainland.

On the flip side, during the pandemic, many restaurants struggled to open back up under the proper protocols, and once they did, they were met with less demand for their kitchens.

Home Cook’s mission is to connect food entrepreneurs to commercial kitchens to enhance their businesses. Growing a business in the food industry should be accessed by all, and it's that simple. With HomeCook, the food industry can continue to grow for all.

Our Vision:

Become the go-to platform that provides access to key resources, insights and connections for businesses in the food industry.
