Pear Chef

Episode NO.313

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.
