There are plenty of people who can make great home cooked meals (ex: homemakers) and plenty of people who would probably pay a reasonable priced for someone to cook for them (ex: young professionals / bachelors). There’s an opportunity somewhere in there.
Munchery is one of the latest startups to go after it. The company’s tagline is "Reinventing the Personal Chef: Gourmet Delivered to Everyone". It’s a pretty simple concept: professional chefs make a certain number of meals that are sold daily through the Munchery site. The meals are delivered to your door and all you need to do is heat them up. Yum.
