Pinny, an online marketplace app created to connecting chefs and kitchen aficionados with lovers of homemade food, will launch Thursday in Buenos Aires.
The application has already been in operation in La Plata since August 15, earning in its first weeks 2,550 active users with more than 550 chefs and an average of 90 daily requests.
At the moment the app is hoping to reach 15,000 users rapidly, along with 3,000 chefs and more than 700 distributors in the capital.
According to its founders, Pinny is a start up that works with the fundamentals of the sharing economy and offers the possibility to all cooking professionals to undertake their own businesses, generating a product that satisfies the demand for homemade and healthy meals at an accessible price.
The app proposes itself as a “nexus and motor that modifies the consumption and food habits of Argentines to reevaluate homely customs and homemade food.”
Those that want to be part of the network will not have to be professional chefs or have restaurant experience, although they must comply with rigorous hygiene standards and adhere to the promise of providing quality service to all of their clients.
Users will have access to the chef’s profiles and comments from other users. Once they receive their request, they will be able to rate chefs and leave their own comments.
