Somewhere in the world, by the time you finish reading this sentence, a new app is born. From the user side, there’s little excitement over the business, unless it proves a worthy download. Into this competing scene had Pinstove, the app, arrived early this year. Its makers knew how and where to place each tile and build a healthy enterprise up.
In a few taps, the five-month-old app now brings home-cooked meals to the hungry souls right out of homemakers’ kitchen. Techies in Kerala, R.S. Jaymohan, Aneesh V.K., and Byju Mohammed, breathed life into the idea of their UK-based CEO Harry Croydon, which has grown to be a yummy network with close to 60 active home chefs, and over 2.5K happy customers in the cities of Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Bengaluru.
The techies had two targets for the zero investment project — to bring good food and help many a homemaker earn out of it.
“No pressure is upon the chefs. All they do is create a profile on the app, cook some extra quantity of their everyday menu, post details on the app and wait for the order to come. We have a fleet of delivery boys called Pinpilots to fetch the order to customers a.k.a. Pindiners,” says Vishnu K., operations head of Pinstove.
One of the Pinchefs, Swapna Rakesh from Thiruvananthapuram, could upgrade herself from a recipe blogger (swadcuisine.com) to an entrepreneur.
“Each day, I add six recipes to the app for breakfast, lunch, tea time and dinner. I am active in my kitchen from morning till evening. It is not mandatory that we prepare dishes everyday, I can stay away for a day if needed. One of my friends introduced me to the app. Though not big, I receive good returns,” says Swapna.
Pinstove is available on Android and iOS platforms....
