CEO and COO of Pear Chef. Founder Danielle Drabkin and COO Jennifer Wei join the show to catch up with Scott about the growth of Pear Chef, a private-chef service amenity serving fresh meals and drinks.
Pear Chef provides weekly menus to buildings that residents can order from on the Pear Chef site, made on-site by the private chef and delivered to your door or for pick up all within 20-30 minutes with zero fees to the customer. All orders are delivered in paper bags for safety reasons during the pandemic, but normally you’d have your meal delivered via cart, a la room service.
The service is geared towards modern luxury apartment buildings, and since Scott first met Danielle early in the development of Pear Chef, they have already expanded into 25+ buildings in the Chicago area.
