Friend That Cooks Personal Chefs offer weekly meal prep for families in Kansas City, Chicago and Wichita with busy schedules, food allergies or special diets. We send a talented chef to the homes of our customers for half a day each week to shop, cook, clean up and stock their refrigerator with a week’s worth of healthy prepared meals to reheat.  Our chefs charge a reasonable hourly rate, plus the cost of groceries. We are the most affordable service of our kind in each of the metros we serve.  Other Friend That Cooks services include individual cooking lessons, cooking parties and private dinners.

The founder, Brandon O’Dell is a food service consultant that has helped many businesses become more profitable by focusing and developing their brand. He took the principles he has been teaching in the food service industry and created his own successful brand.

COMPANY ACCOMPLISHMENT YOU’RE MOST PROUD OF
> I am most proud that we are able to pay our employees 50% more than what most cooks are able to earn in the retail restaurant industry. We have also seen a 50% increase in sales for 3 consecutive years.

WHAT’S THE MOST EXCITING THING ON THE HORIZON FOR YOU/YOUR COMPANY?
> Friend That Cooks has expanded into the Chicago market in the last 30 days and have already reached a break even point with our business there. We expect big things for the Chicago market. Personal chefs are plentiful, but none offer the value that we do.
