COVID has made it easier to sit on the couch and order in without any guilt. But sometimes you want an elevated dining experience not found on Seamless or Uber Eats without having to go out to eat. CookUnity, founded in Brooklyn in 2018, brings gourmet meals from top and rising chefs in the culinary world delivered straight to your door. Structured as a weekly subscription service, the company offers over 300 meal options that start at a very reasonable $10.49 per meal. With the restaurant industry severely disrupted with lockdowns and fighting for survival, the service has been able to provide chefs much needed income, expand their followings, and avoid onerous and debilitating fees of the food delivery apps.
AlleyWatch caught up with Founder and CEO Mateo Marietti to learn more about the company’s progress during the pandemic (the company grew 5x YOY), expansion plans outside of its Brooklyn base to serve new markets, his restaurant picks, and the company’s recent funding from investors that include Fuel Venture Capital, IDC Ventures, Gaingels, Marcos Galperin, Martin Varsavsky, and David Kamenetzky.
