DishDivvy gives you the ability to market your home-cooked meals to friends and neighbors. Your customers pick up the meals, or have them delivered through DoorDash. They pay you through the site, which reimburses you through direct deposit.

You set the price of your meal, figuring the cost of ingredients and what you want to earn for your time. The site takes 15% of the meal’s cost and charges customers a 55 or 99 cent fee.

What we like

A handful of factors set DishDivvy apart. First, while the site is young and only available in a few cities, that small scale has allowed the owners to be hands-on with their cooks. DishDivvy helps cooks price their meals, take professional photographs, shop effectively and market their service.

DishDivvy also launched an affiliate program that provides incentives for cooks and clients to recommend dishes for sale on the platform. That’s likely to drive more business to cooks. They can also earn money with these referrals and other activities, such as uploading new menu items. Customers can also sign up to be affiliates and earn roughly $3 each time someone orders using their affiliate link.* 

Smart technology

DishDivvy provides a smart ‘order cut-off’ logic on their platform, which allows cooks to receive orders in advance of their scheduled cook days/times. That can cut down on food and labor waste. You can also indicate your daily inventories for each dish, so that you can operate at comfortable order volumes for your own kitchen capacity.

*DishDivvy is a SideHusl affiliate, which means we could earn a small commission if you buy meals here or sign up to cook. (You can learn more about our affiliate policy here.)


Other sites to consider: Shef, which operates in Northern California, New York, Chicago, Houston and Seattle and EatWith, which offers in-home dining experiences. ChefsFeed and CozyMeal also help chefs offer cooking classes and other gastronomic events. 

What their users say:

“They’re very supportive and provide a lot of information about how you can prepare meals in a more time and cost-effective way.”

“I don’t know if  you can make a lot of money right now, but you can certainly make enough to be satisfied with the outcome.”
