Our Story

Founded in 2011, the founders of Yupeat set out to simplify the process of cooking good food at home. In particular, Yupeat seeks to answer the question, "What's for dinner?". By offering one fresh and delicious meal idea per day in your inbox and buying your ingredients, we make it easier for you to eat well without the hassle.

Place an order and pick up the bagged meal ingredients after work. It's that simple.

Our Team / Your Buyers

Ray Ventura

Chief Instigator

After challenging grocery store managers to make the lives of their customers simpler with little success, Ray set out to find others who would. These days he's usually interviewing food bloggers and buying groceries for Yupeat members. A Computer Engineering grad from Georgia Tech and JD/MBA holder from Univ of MN, he's finally putting his skills to use to bag groceries.

Jess Ziman

Culinary Goddess

Credit to Jess for being the only member of the Yupeat team with real kitchen expertise, she ensures that every user achieves gastronomic nirvana by carefully reviewing each meal and shopping only the freshest ingredients for users. When she's not making users happy, the UK born all star is busy wowing her peers at the Art Institute's Culinary School.

Daudi Malunda

iPhone Guru

On any given day you'll find Daudi pimping out the Yupeat iPhone app, buying groceries for Yupeat members, or listening to reggae in the Mission (not necessarily in that order). Daudi earned his bachelor's and master's degree in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT in 2006, and gained experience working for two well known Fortune 500 companies before joining Yupeat.
