All HomeCooks in California are required to get a health permit from their county’s Department of Environmental Health (DEH), Food and Housing Division, prior to operating.
HomeCooks must successfully pass a state government approved and accredited food safety manager course and any individual, other than the operator, who is involved with the preparation, storage, or service of food in a Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operations (MEHKO, which Homevyte refers to as HomeCooks) must also obtain a food handler card from one of the schools approved by DEH.
Department of Environmental Health also conducts inspections at the HomeCook’s residence to verify compliance with state law. Once compliance is verified, the permit will be issued.
All HomeCooks go through Homevyte’s own safety and customer service training course in order to strengthen relations and to be vetted further.
Homevyte selects partners who are serious and professional. These are HomeCooks who invest a lot of time and money into setting up their business, and go through several tiers of safety and customer training in order to earn a decent income. HomeCooks are ordinary, everyday people who take great pride in their new venture and take the extraordinary leap into entrepreneurship.
HomeCooks are owners of their businesses and take food safety and cleanliness very seriously because the very existence of their business depends on it.
