What is Yumi?
Yumi is the new food app that provides a great choice for the customer and creative freedom for chefs to have the opportunity to sell food from their home kitchens by allowing them to connect with discerning foodies in their area through the App and offering them the latest culinary creations.
We thoroughly vet our chefs to ensure they meet our high standards; thereby ensuring a great customer experience and a solid reputation for our platform. Once they have signed up with Yumi; chefs can respond to requests in their area, post pictures of available dishes to their profile or announce a dish of the day and wait for the orders to flood in.
Yumi takes the concept of food delivery one step further – allowing delicious, nutritious meals to become part of every home.
There are plenty of food delivery apps around, but do they deliver quality food ?
The Yumi App is a great concept because it enables both customers and chefs to benefit from the App by addressing the following problems and solving them :
- The fast-food delivered by Apps is often not nutritious, people now demand more from their delivery food.
- The App gives creative freedom to chefs by allowing them to create their own menu or cuisine unlike when they work in a restaurant.
- Home cooks may not have previously thought of selling their food, but when they see this opportunity with Yumi they will change their minds and enjoy building up a work-from-home business.
We believe that a startup is only as strong as its vision. That’s why at Yumi we have an ambitious vision to become:
- The World’s Number 1 Home-Cooked Food Delivery Concept
Yumi’s team is made up of several respected business owners and franchisees who are experienced at creating new businesses by recognizing new concepts and picking up new trends that will be worth franchising in. We have experience in creating successful apps including Washare and we are keen to bring on board like-minded Franchisees who can help us grow and achieve our vision.
We also see our chefs as an integral part of the team. We carefully vet and select our chefs to ensure the Yumi App users get the best quality food and service and therefore; increase the user retention which leads to more profit for the franchisee.
Yumi operates a call center that is open 24/7 for our customers and they can also reach out using the app. Once a customer contacts us with an inquiry, you will be included from the beginning of the process as we provide the needed assistance and you will also be informed of any decisions made regarding your operation.
We are a company that has already achieved several milestones and created several successful businesses. We created the popular Washare App, which enables customers to get their laundry done with the click of an app. We have built up a dedicated base of customers and a team of happy service providers on this app.
New funding from franchisees would help us take the Yumi App around the world. We have already developed the App, website and secured some significant franchising opportunities. Now is the chance for you to come on board and make money from all the food orders that will come flooding in once we’re up and running.
We provide an opportunity for you to work on your own terms. You won’t need any kind of premises to operate, you will receive our business management training and after that; you will control the portal and manage transactions taking place in your territory.
For example, let’s assume you are given a zone with an average of 62,000 residents and only 0.5% of the population decides to order from the Yumi App at least once a week with a variable value (depends on the value of the order in each country UK – Turkey – France – Italy – Egypt)
If the minimum transaction is hypothetically $15, that would total at $18,600/month. The profit is distributed as follows, 75% of the transaction goes to the service provider and the Franchisee get 20% (the remaining 5% goes to Yumi for royalty fees). So, this means that you’ll be making approximately $3,720/month. Also, take into consideration that we assume that every customer will use the app once a week and the minimum order will be $15, it could be way more than this.
Remember we are looking at the lower end of possible income, we will never aim for this. We aim much higher as it is not our target to get only 0.5% of the population to use our service, we aim as high as we can and as a result; you should breakeven in a short period of time. If you are interested, our Yumi Franchising opportunity is based on a 5-year contract. We ask for 20% upfront as initial payment and the rest can be paid within 6 months.
