FEAZT: Because the Love for Food is undying5 years ago Prashant Das
One thing that is common to people all around the world is their love for food. Everyone is a foodie at heart and there is always one or other food to which they can never say no to and if you live in the most culturally diversified country in the world, it has its perks for food lovers in the form of an infinite variety of food. Every place in India offers its own unique food types and habits. But then there are some food lovers (like my mother) who instead of eating, prefer playing host. What if you get paid for hosting?? wouldn’t that be a motivation?
This idea formed the base for starting up of FEAZT, a totally unique venture which presents an opportunity for people to play host or guest whichever they are comfortable. Feazt Interactive Systems Pvt. Ltd. was set up on 12th Feb 2014 with a vision of encouraging socialization over food and reviving the traditional culinary.
HOW A FEAZT IS COOKED
– Any person interested to a host can register and feazt host-helper team then contacts the host for a little inspection in which they:
a. Inspect the kitchen for hygiene.
b. Taste sample dish
– Post the event with date and time and venue along with a menu which is complete as per the hosts’ choice.
– Interested guests can pick the event they want to attend and confirm for the same by making the payment.
– Guests attend the feast and they are asked to give their feedback. Once satisfactory feedback is a receiver, feazt is confirmed as successful and the host is paid the amount received from guests after minimal deduction.
– Doesn’t Host want some guest?
The host has all the right to choose who they want to attend the feazt and can cancel anyone whom they don’t want to be a part of it. The host can also set the maximum no. of guests they want in the feazt.
– Guest cancels?
In case the guest cancels 48 hours prior to feazt, they get a full refund. Canceling 24-48 hours beforehand will lead to 50% deduction and if cancellation is done less than 24 hours before the feazt, there will be no refund for the guest.
– Does host cancel the feazt?
Hosts are charged a minimum subscription fee which includes a deposit in case the host cancels the feazt and a signup fee in order to use the platform for hosting. If the host cancels, guests get full amount returned and deduction is made from the deposit amount of host.
– Difficulty in hosting the first time?
In case the host finds it difficult for it is the first time hosting, feazt can be asked for help and they send their helper to assist which is a complimentary service. Only the meal of assistant is free of cost.
– Discrepancy by the host?
Feedback is taken from the guests after feazt and in case of any discrepancy, an amount is deducted from what the guest is supposed to receive.
Feazt provides an option of rating and reviewing a host or a particular feazt for future reference of any new enthusiast.
