Optimize Ingredient Supply Chain for Chefs

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

HUNGRY's business model is redefining the office food standard and disrupting the $50+ billion office catering market. By working directly with top chefs, HUNGRY saves companies an average of 33 percent when compared to traditional caterers. The platform's streamlined marketplace allows customers to effortlessly order chef-prepared meals with just a few clicks. HUNGRY delivers, on average, more than 40,000 meals per month to hungry businesspeople and, for every two meals sold, donates one meal to those in need. To date, the company has donated more than 265,000 meals and counting. HUNGRY has been expanding into new markets, which means more clients and chefs in more cities around the world. A key metric they're beginning to track is the cost of every meal produced by their chefs, including the cost of ingredients, packaging, deliver, and chef time. A new priority for them is to try and help the chefs reduce the cost of ingredients so that they can improve both their margin and the margin for their chefs. Through a careful analysis of their current supply chain and chef resource planning process, HUNGRY is hoping that you as MBA Consultants will be able to provide recommendations when it comes to improving the cost of ingredients chefs need in order to produce food for their final customers.
