OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Cozymeal is offering a safe space to have a date night, improve your cooking skills and enjoy some great food.
"We started to see a big drop in bookings," said Sam Nasserian, the CEO of Cozymeal.
Nasserian, CEO of Cozymeal, said the pandemic changed the way they serve food to their clients.
They shifted their model by bringing their cooking experience to the home — virtually, of course!
"Virtual cooking classes provide some benefits over in-person cooking classes. One of the biggest is you have access now to chefs around the world,” said Nasserian.
Moving virtually has made the globe much smaller for Cozymeal and its customers.
For example, an Omaha resident can sit in their own kitchen and learn how to make ramen from a chef in Tokyo.
"They've been very popular for people that wanted to have fun, resourceful experiences — even with their loved ones living somewhere else and being socially distanced," said Nasserian.
Nasserian said, by adapting their business model, they've been able to make it through the pandemic, and end the year successfully.
Not only have their virtual classes provided great food to their customers, but it's also kept chefs employed.
"Hundreds of chefs in the U.S. have been able to make a living and make it through the pandemic instead of having to work in person, in a restaurant," said Nasserian.
Nasserian said customers have the option to get the ingredients themselves or have them delivered through a preferred grocery store.
