Frequently Asked Questions
How often do I have to cook?
It’s your business, so up to you! Our team will work with you to figure out what cadence of cooking makes sense for your goals, but ultimately you decide when and how often you want to cook. Our most successful cooks have showed that cooking consistently (at least once a week) allows them to more easily build up a loyal following of customers.
What can I make?
Our cooks have full creative license, so make what you love! Some cooks switch up their menu every meal, while others go with one signature dish. We want you to experiment and own it! Of course, our staff and our cook community are always available to provide feedback or share meal ideas.
Does it cost anything to cook with Josephine?
There’s no cost to set up a cook account or post meals. For each meal you cook, you’ll keep 90% of your total sales and 10% of your sales will go toward covering the cost of our services. We also partner with values aligned non-profits for no cost.
How and when do I get paid?
After completing a meal and confirming your sales, we'll send your payment via PayPal the next business day. PayPal transfers to your bank account within 1 to 3 business days.

What Cooks Are Saying
Testimonials straight from the cooks' mouths.
“Not only am I living out a childhood dream of cooking for others, I'm doing it as an entrepreneur! With all the help and support I need to be a success at it. The icing on this cake is, I get to do what I love, out of my home that I love, for neighbors who love and appreciate home cooked meals. This is one of my dreams and I'm living it deliciously!”
“Until last year, I lived in Saigon, Vietnam my whole life. I'd love to open a small restaurant here to share my favorite dishes, but really can't afford to do that now. By joining the Josephine family, however, I've been able to enjoy my passion for cooking, introducing my favorite Vietnamese recipes to my Emeryville neighbors!”
