How it Started
A few years ago David & I were sat in the back garden on a Summers night sipping on some wine. At this stage we were only dating. We were talking about our dreams and aspirations, when David said to me. “You know what I’d really love to do?” to which I answered “what?” He said I would love to start a business whereby we take the Restaurant to people’s homes. Intrigued, I said tell me more. He went on to say how he would create bespoke menus for these clients and provide a hassle-free service by providing everything. I said everything?! He said yes everything, crockery, cutlery, glassware, table linen, the works! I thought to myself what a great idea and we left it there.
How it Evolved
Strangely enough within that time we did a lot of entertaining at home. We found that despite our best intentions to stay in the room and enjoy our guests; that event’s would end without us having had a proper catch up with our guests. Why? Because we were running around between the kitchen and our guests. If it wasn’t checking on the food, it was drinks, if it wasn’t drinks it was tidying up, if it wasn’t tidying up, it was getting a blanket for that one cold guest. Its crazy because we know you have experienced this too; it happens to everyone and it is frustrating. All of a sudden everyone leaves and you suddenly think to yourself, I didn’t even really talk to Sarah! Conversations that you had planned to have, never happened because you were not present in the room to do so!
Fast forward 10 year later and David’s dream has become a reality! Dreams have a funny way of revealing themselves. We realised in that time that actually there is a gap in the market for this type of service. You see, we are sticklers for great food and customer service, having worked in prestigious hotels our entire lives. We found ourselves going to Restaurants and being underwhelmed by the entire experience. Either the service wasn’t warm and welcoming or the food was just a little bit meh. And menus from Restaurant to Restaurant were pretty much the same! For us Hospitality is about the experience; anticipating your guests needs, its about making people feel special, it’s about the wow factor, its about creating memorable experiences, from the food to service to the atmosphere.
How its Going
And this is why DaChi works and has been so successful. We deliver a personalised service whereby we go above and beyond, we create bespoke menus with any and all of your favourite foods, we don’t believe you should have to pick from a set menu. We give you that time to stay in the room; as we like to say ‘Stay a part of the conversation and not the preparation or dreaded clean up! We solve the problem of food, service, setting up and cleaning up all in one just so you can enjoy what’s really important. Being with the people who you invited into your home to enjoy them, to laugh and to create lasting memories for years to come. I mean I know that sounds slightly dramatic but its true! We only cater for events between 2- 30 people. Why? Because its personal, its intimate and this is where we shine.
And for those of you who haven’t quite figured out our name. Its not random, DaChi is a combination of our names David & Chido. Essentially its David & Chido’s Restaurant to You!
