Billy makes a killer cookie, he is known for it. He feels he has a product like no one else’s but can’t justify a shopfront just for his cookie.

Johnny grew up in Italy and moved to Australia last year. He loved nothing more than mamma’s lasagne. While a trip home twice a year gives him a chance to savour that flavour, he misses a home cooked traditional lasagne.

Billy and Johnny have a home on FoodByUs. A new service allowing Billy to sell his cookies and allowing Johnny to find an Italian mamma selling lasagne.

We have AirBnB where anyone can turn their house into a hotel, Uber where anyone can become a taxi driver and now FoodByUs where anyone can buy or sell homemade food.


It is actually really easy on both fronts too, for the buyer it is like an online store, search for the type of food you are after, click and either collect or have it delivered. For the seller it is a three step process:

1. Masterchefs-in- the-making can visit and apply online by answering a few simple questions

2. FoodByUs will help get you on board by doing a taste test and make sure you understand your responsibilities to be a quality home cook on the site

3. Once approved, they will help you set up your FoodByUs store so you can start making delicious food and earning cash


Who would have thought that we might be buying food from our neighbours in 2016? If you’re retired, could you see yourself selling your family favourite curry? It all certainly beats fast-food and for the sellers provides a great way to make money from your kitchen.
