Dahmakan a food-tech startup in Southeast Asia brings an organized approach to food delivery. The company offers chef-made meals at a price lesser than restaurants at just click of a button.
Dahmakan is the brainchild of former employees of Foodpanda- Jonathan Weins, Jessica Li, and Christian Edelmann. The basic premise of dahmakan is to cut out the middleman from food delivery and pass the value back to the consumers. Dahmakan uses AI in logistics and cooking automation to make food delivery affordable to millions of office workers in Southeast Asia.
Dahmakan, The Experience Of Home-Cooked Food At Your Doorstep
Unlike other food delivery platforms such as UberEats, Deliveroo, and Foodpanda, which act as a middleman who pickup food from stalls and restaurants and delivers to customers; dahmakan delivers food that has been prepared by in-house chefs in a centralized kitchen.
According to CEO and co-founder Jonathan Weis, the company doesn’t aim at creating a new marketplace, rather it wants to take control of the entire value chain including logistics and food production to build more efficient food delivery service.
The company sources high-quality fresh ingredients from their local suppliers. The customers can order food via an app or through their easy to navigate website. Dahmakan boasts of having culinary wizards on board who will keep your taste buds ticking for more. The delivery of ready to eat meals is free of charge.
