“I used the portal to see what benefits I had about two weeks ago. And I joined the FoodCo partnership to access training and lectures. To my surprise, it was very easy to access and the content was of excellent quality – it was very targeted to the reality of my business”, comments Márcio Lira, owner of Original Prime burger's in Salvador Bahia.

“I already knew about the Triângulo Institute, in addition to the program. After joining the iFood Chef's Advantages, I was able to not only correctly dispose of the used oil, but also obtain a financial return. This partnership with iFood is important because it helps to remedy price increases in the market, in general”, comments João Previ, from the Haya Falafel Alimentação Vegana restaurant in São Paulo.

“We use the Price-R tool from Vantagens do Chef and it was very important to help our business, because in the past we used Excel. This tool came to meet what we needed, which is to create a technical sheet, place photos and pricing in the app. Now we have a better visualization of price balance, which can generate a profit margin”, comments Fabrício, owner of the Appetita restaurant, in Belo Horizonte MG.
