Company Overview

Cookonnect creates greater access to personal chef services by simplifying the process of hiring and being a personal chef. We connect busy families with pre-screened, professional chefs for meal prep services.

Increasing access to in-home chefs can improve health and drive economic advancement.

Tomorrow, our platform can help prevent disease, improve overall health, and create culinary entrepreneurs. Cookonnect is a high growth, pre-seed stage startup operating in Atlanta, GA. Our founder, Erica Tuggle, is a Harvard Business School graduate with 13+ years experience in the Services and Food & Beverage industry. Backed by Techstars and Slauson & Co, we are excited about the path ahead as we build a rockstar team and scalable model. As we continue to grow, we are looking for ambitious teammates that are passionate about creating healthier food solutions and supporting the culinary community.
