Newsletter: January 7, 2016

Dear Chefs, 

Happy New Year from the entire Feastly team! 2015 will be remembered as the year of incredible growth and innovation for Feastly – and it’s because of you, our amazing chefs.
 
As we begin 2016, there are many new initiatives and opportunities we’re excited to share. We will be launching a bi-monthly Chef Newsletter to keep you updated on our venues, policies, product updates, competitions, events and more. 
 
Introducing Molly Beckert
 
We recently welcomed the newest member to our team, Molly Beckert. Molly has traveled around the world and is a huge fan of international cuisine as well as anything with avocado and chocolate, though not typically together. Molly will be taking over as our San Francisco Community Manager. She will be your primary point of contact for Feastly moving forward. 
 
Molly would love to schedule a face-to-face meeting with every chef over the next couple of weeks to discuss your experiences, aspirations and perspective on your partnership with Feastly. She will be reaching out to each of you personally to coordinate a convenient time. Feel free to reach out to her at molly@eatfeastly.com.
 
January 2016 Updates

  • Feastly Family Meal: Starting on January 31 (and the last Sunday of every month), we will be hosting a gathering of chefs at one of our venues. This will be a chance to meet fellow chefs, exchange ideas, catch up on Feastly news and enjoy some amazing food and spirits. While attendance is not mandatory, if you cannot attend, we request you join us in a Google Hangout for the announcement part of the evening.
  • No Fees, Please: To encourage advance posting of meals, we will be waiving the standard 12% chef fee when you post your menu at least one month in advance (guests will still pay the 10% service fee at booking). Because January is underway, we will be extending the offer until January 15th to book for February. Hurry and get your menus posted today!
  • Payouts: We're increasing the number of times we do payouts to twice a week. Check your bank accounts on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

It’s an exciting time to be part of the Feastly family. There is so much to come in 2016 and we’re grateful that you’re a part of it. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns or feedback.

Best,

Adam Zolot
