How full-stack developer built a cooking subscription service to make cooking eating and leanring about food accessible to everyone

"What Rassa is doing is giving chefs a platform and way to digitalize their skills and become creators in the creator economy. Up until now, our chefs have had to work crazy long hours for low pay, and it's a pretty abusive environment. We're trying to make it easier for chefs to make money online and help people discover cultures from all around the world." Learn how full-stack developer Tom Charman, used Memberstack to gate content and setup paying memberships to make cooking, eating and learning about food from all around the world accessible regardless of your location, all while giving professional chefs a platform to share their knowledge skills and experience.

Hidden content

"We want to be able to charge people a monthly subscription to be able to access the content the chefs have created for us we went after an approach that was allowing users to access all of the content for a monthly fee, as opposed to kind of sign up for particular shifts. Because we wanted to make sure that all of the chefs benefit from this platform. Um, and it was just the quickest way of getting something integrated fast and allowing us to charge our customers from day one. Secondly, this meant that we can pay our chefs from day one as well, which was important."

Speed

"We wanted to get something out there as quickly as possible because so many people have been displaced by the coronavirus. We wanted to make sure that we could get money into people's hands. The restaurant industry went completely upside down and we wanted to get something moving as quickly as possible, which is why we went down that road."

Simplicity

"One of the reasons that we went with Memberstack is that you offer a deal with secret which is additional help for startups. It gave me the first three months free, which meant I could really just try the product out and see if it was a good fit for the business. It was also just super simple to integrate. I'm a full stack developer and the speed of being able to get something out there in a matter of days was really important.

It was like super simple; this is step one, step two, step three, publish, live. I think that was the thing that kept me on the platform"

Community

"I like the Memberstack community. When I was building and ran into problems, there was always someone that could help and it went so far that when I had a different problem with a different solution that we were building within the platform, I posted to the Memberstack community and just said, does anyone know what I can do about this? Someone DM'd me and got it sorted for me, even though it had nothing to do with Memberstack. So I think access to the community and the wider ability to work together was something that kept me happy.

I think community is going to be one of the most important things for any company moving forwards"
