ChefKart, a Gurugram-based at-home cooking services platform, has raised $2 million in a seed round of funding led by Pravega Ventures and Blume Ventures.
Deepinder Goyal, Titan Capital, Kunal Shah, Tremis Capital, Lets Venture, and other prominent angels also joined.
The capital will be utilized for expansion to new geographical territories.
ChefKart was founded in 2020 by Vaibhav Gupta, Aman Gupta and Arpit Gupta to solve the problem of the lack of reliable at-home cooking services. It upskills local cooks into trained and professional home chefs.
The company has also built hyperlocal marketing and established supply control in Gurugram, with strategic plans for the upcoming expansion to other regions.
ChefKart launched new lines of business, such as chefs for parties.
Vaibhav Gupta, CEO and Founder, ChefKart, said, “We have served over 3,200+ families and are managing over 2,300+ cooking sessions daily with a 15 per cent m-o-m growth.”
According to a FICCI-PwC report, the Indian food services market is valued at INR 5,52,000 crores in 2022, with the unorganised sector claiming over 57 per cent of the market share. There is a huge demand for reliable cooking services. ChefKart aims to bridge this gap by transforming this untapped sector’s workers into reliable service providers.
