ChefHero was established in 2015 by Saif & Diego. Growing up around his uncle's produce business, Saif noticed a broken link in how vendors and restaurants were connecting. With the help of Diego, he envisioned a future where chefs could easily leverage technology to access everything they need in one place.
Today ChefHero is a lively startup headquartered in the heart of downtown Toronto, the fastest growing tech hub in North America! With an additional office located in downtown Chicago, we are growing team with a vision to create the world’s most trusted food service industry and leave chefs with more time to do what they love: make incredible food.
We are a group of extremely talented people with go-getter attitudes. If this sounds like you… check out our open positions below!
