Who is Home Chef?
Home Chef was originally founded by Pat Vihtelic in 2013 by partnering with a chef to design delicious, easy-to-follow recipes. The basic idea behind Home Chef was simple: to provide everything you need to bring more delicious meals and moments to the table, no matter how busy you are.
Today, Home Chef is one of the largest private meal kit delivery companies in the USA. Home Chef makes home cooking simple and approachable by providing weekly deliveries of fresh, pre-portioned ingredients and familiar, easy-to-follow recipes. According to Home Chef’s website, “Pat founded Home Chef in 2013 out of a passion for cooking and frustration with grocery shopping. He has grown the company’s team to nearly 1000 employees who enable the company to deliver nationwide.”
Home Chef set out to create a network of food delivery which begins online and ends on your kitchen table, providing you and anyone you are serving a streamlined and stress-free meal. According to Home Chef’s site, “simplicity is our mantra… we make planning and preparing a home-cooked meal simple, intuitive and inspirational every step of the way.”
Since Home Chef’s humble beginnings, the company has grown to include several more chefs, and many employees across their production, marketing, technology, product, design, and customer service teams. In fact, in 2017 alone Home Chef claims to have delivered over 10 million meals and expanded on their delivery services to make their meals available to more than 97% of the U.S. population.
Home Chef holds on to the belief that people continue to love their service for the same reasons that it was founded: the belief that a meal delivery service saves time, reduces food waste, and most importantly, brings people together for a home-cooked meal.

Home Chef’s Pricing and Plans
Home Chef offers a variety of meal plans and pricing options for anyone who is interested in signing up. To begin with, you must first register with Home chef by providing them with your email address.This will sign you up for a newsletter about their services, but if you aren’t interested you can always unsubscribe from the service later by clicking on the link in the email they send you.
Afterward, Home Chef provides you with a wide range of options. The first of which asks you for how many people you would like to order servings for. Your options range from 2 people, 4 people, or 6 people, and are fixed. However, you can change this at a later time if you are so inclined to be flexible with the number of servings you would like to receive.
One of Home Chef’sgreatest strengths is in the number of times that they will deliver to yourhome on a weekly basis. Unlike other meal delivery services, which only delivermeals between 2 to 4 times a week, Home Chef allows you to receive meals between2 to 6 times a week, filling out your week with delivered meals so that you canenjoy the benefits of meal delivery every busy working day.
From there you are given the option to select what you prefer to eat, first focusing on the foundation of the meal: meat, seafood, or vegetables. If you would prefer to be more flexible in your meal options at this stage, or simply want to go with an omnivore route, then simply don’t select an option here and it will keep your preferences open when it comes to the foundation of the meal.
