Our aim is to bridge the gap between townships, Cities and villages by breaking racial, religious and cultural barriers and making Tourism more inclusive to unreachable areas and directly benefit the locals. We have hosts in Khayelitsha, LavenderHll and Gugulethu township in Cape Town and we just recently scaled to Soweto and Braamfontein in Joburg. Our main goal is to have these dinners happening across the African continent.
Our Business Model is quite simple, we allow tourists and locals to book for dinner seats via our website. Our prices ranges from R150 – R400 per seat. We then link the guests to the host who is already been qualified by our team. We have already partnered with 8 tourist companies who we invoice every month, they email us directly as the bring large amounts of people.
From every seat booked we make 110% profit after paying the host and the transporting of Guests.
We currently have 3 employees. An Operations Manager who takes care of the bookings and Marketing. A chef which trains our hosts on cooking dietary foods and the recruiter which signs up and approves hosts.
In the simplest terms ” we are an AIR B&B and UBER like company for Food and tourism Industry”
