SAN FRANCISCO, CA, CALIF., March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chefs Feed, the leading provider of unique and credible food-related content for consumers based on the expertise of nearly 1,000 highly acclaimed professional chefs, announced that it will be available to Android users. "We peaked at #1 in the App Store's Food & Drink category this month…the appetite is there for Android, so we're thrilled to have another platform to further our disruption of the anonymous user generated review space." says co-founder Steven Rivera.
Since its launch, Chefs Feed has quickly created over 23 million chef-to-user connections within the iPhone app alone, growing at a rate of 35K per day. Additionally, Chefs Feed's users have "eaten" and/or "planned" over one million dishes in the app. With the expansion to Android, Chefs Feed projects an exponential growth that will further validate the company's "experts as reviewers" model.
Jointly, the company has added Rich Maggiotto, formerly co-founder & CEO of Zinio, as its new CEO to continue its momentum in luring capital and top talent, and accelerate the adoption of its products in 2014. "Chefs Feed's vision is to connect people to credible perspectives on food and urban lifestyle," says Maggiotto. "We're stepping in to fill a huge demand in the mobile space for authentic media, something above the noise. There are lots of ways to locate a restaurant, or find something to eat, but that's not our experience. Our gravity comes from chefs, who we see as the ultimate authority on food."
Chefs Feed's roster of chefs includes nearly 1,000 of the North America's top chefs, notably Thomas Keller (French Laundry, Per Se, Bouchon), San Francisco's Michael Mina (Restaurant Michael Mina), New York's Mario Batali (Babbo, Lupa), Chicago's Paul Kahan (Blackbird, Publican) and Los Angeles's Wolfgang Puck (Spago, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill).
"There's no other comparison to Chefs Feed" says Mission Chinese Food's owner and James Beard Award winning Rising Star Chef Danny Bowien.
