About Us

Marddy’s mission is to Preserve and Promote Culinary Culture.
We focus on economic inclusion, business development and growth opportunities for local food entrepreneurs.
Our primary service groups are people of color, women and other marginalized populations.
We provide a licensed facility for cooks to prepare and distribute their offerings.

Our Start

Many communities are at risk of losing their Culinary history due to gentrification and rapid development. The customer base of local home cooks in ethnic communities is being displaced by higher earning newcomers. Because of these shifting demographics, most of the home cook’s traditional distribution channels are closing. Marddy’s has reimagined the way that these entrepreneurs bring their products to market.

Our Vision

To transform the health and wealth of communities through delicious traditional home-cooked food. Real food taste good!
