Who are they?

About La Belle Assiette - Who are we?

La Belle Assiette was launched in 2013 with a vision: Empower private chefs through technology and the marketplace to cater unique food experiences, anytime, everywhere ! With La Belle Assiette, the restaurant comes to your home, company’s office or to iconic venues.

Our partners are independent Chefs - We strive everyday to help them grow their business and break the silos with traditional restaurants and catering.

We tackle hard user problems which require best-in class technology. The company has built a robust platform which allows private and corporate clients to book a local Chef, in just a few clicks. Our 450 active Chefs, spread across 5 markets in Europe, manage their business on their fingertips, focusing on what they are passionate about: inventing new recipes.

Here are some facts about the existing product:

  • 700 events a month in 2021 (avg.) and growing !
  • European customers increasingly mature to book culinary experiences online, on mobile & desktop. Conversion has doubled since 2019.
  • A clear vision of technology-led empowerment to promote self service on both ends of the marketplace: 75% of the bookings are performed 100% online ie. without human intervention.

We have a solid base. Still, we are not resting on our laurels and have great ambitions to expand into new business models and revenue streams. Since the beginning, we have raised €4M from qualified investors, including Nicolas Brusson (BlaBlaCar), Thibaud Elzière (Fotolia, eFounders), Laurent Plantier (ex-Ducasse, French Food Capital), the founders of l’Atelier des Chefs (Europe’s leading cooking workshop), Kima Ventures, the Elior Group.

We are a team of 12 people with a resolutely entrepreneurial, supportive, committed and considerate attitude.
