Homevyte’s ultimate goal is to give guests the in-home dining experience prepared locally by well-rounded and passionate HomeCooks from around the world. Very importantly, Homevyte gives professional HomeCooks the opportunity to earn equity in the company and make a decent income from selling delicious food in their home restaurants.
Homevyte monitors HomeCooks and guests that visit them. We know which HomeCook has reservations and who the customer is that is visiting HomeCooks’ home restaurant.
All HomeCooks go through full government permitting processes like home and kitchen inspections, then they are issued a permit number by pertinent California governing agencies.
All HomeCooks go through a professional food handlers program to receive their professional certification before they can receive an operating permit.
Homevyte thoroughly vets potential HomeCooks and only considers, selects, and accepts serious and professional partners.
Homevyte provides HomeCooks in-house food handling, safety, and customer service training before they become partners.
Whenever the guests get to the HomeCook’s residence, they press the “arrive” button on the Homevyte app and this confirms their arrival, informing the HomeCook and being registered with Homevyte.
When the guests arrive at the HomeCook’s residence and they press the arrival button, then the HomeCook presses the “confirm guest arrival” button to confirm the guests’ arrival. This puts both the guest (s) and the HomeCook in each other’s presence.
Guest ID confirmation
The first time the guest arrives to his reservation, the HomeCook confirms the guest’s identification by comparing their ID to the credit card the food was purchased with.
Guests whose identification has been confirmed, receive a Homevyte’s Gold Star.
