Brisbane home cooks can now deliver food to Neighbours!  New sharing economy platform FoodByUs set to change the way locals eat 

 18th July 2017: FoodByUs, today launched into Brisbane to change the way residents eat, by connecting talented homes cooks with hungry locals.

FoodByUs is an online marketplace where locals can buy (or sell) some of the best homemade food from approved passionate home chefs who love to cook, bake and create, so they don’t have to. 

Whatever your taste, FoodByUs has something unique for everyone. Enjoy recipes that have been passed down through generations; cooks that have travelled from continent to continent to offer dishes you won’t find anywhere else; alongside delicacies for those with special dietary requirements like GF, vegan and more.

FoodByUs is excited to add our food sharing concept to Brisbane’s emerging food scene. With FoodByUs already having great success in both Sydney and Melbourne, we are looking forward to connecting locals with  talented home cooks and predict Brisbane could have some of the best talent in the country.


We have already signed up a number of residents who want to turn their passion for cooking into a business ”, says Ben Lipschitz, Co-Founder and Managing Director of FoodByUs.”

Meet your local makers by visiting and simply add in your postcode to find something you love. From here it’s easy to have delicious dishes including curries, casseroles, soups, pastas, baked goods and sweets delivered from just $5.

“We have already signed up over 75 Brisbane makers, which includes home cooks catering for special dietary needs. For example, busy mum Cinnamon Morissey who sells Everymite (a nutrient dense, energy breakfast spread alternative to Vegemite) started because her son could not eat vegemite or any other alternative on the market, due to numerous food intolerances.

It’s makers like these which are helping to change the way people in Brisbane eat,” continues Ben Lipschitz.  

FoodByUs is the perfect solution for those looking for delicious home cooked meals, a tasty dessert for entertaining guests, food innovation, or special dietary requirements.

Also FoodByUs quality tests all applicants and only accepts top makers which you get to rate, to make sure everyone gets the best quality experience. 

If you would like to become a maker and turn your passion for cooking into a business, visit FoodByUs and book for the next taste test in Brisbane on August 4.
