Company Description

Home chef is cooking up a storm. The meal-kit business sends customers pre-portioned ingredients and recipes on a weekly basis, giving them the option to select which cuisines they’d like about two weeks in advance. Customers pay by the meal, with dishes like chipotle ranch chicken salad, avocado detox farro bowl, and al pastor pork taco starting at $7.99. Founder Patrick Vihtelic launched the company in 2013, inspired by his childhood, when eating fresh produce from the family farm was a daily occurrence. Last year, Home Chef booked more than $255 million in revenue, a sharp increase from the $423,207 it saw in 2014.
