Chef Shamy Gourmet Wins Utah SpeedPitch!

Last week FundingUniverse held one of our famous SpeedPitch Events in Utah.  We brought a lot of great up-and-coming entrepreneurs together to pitch their big ideas to some of Utah’s most active investors.  One company that seemed to catch the investors’ attention was Chef Shamy Gourmet Foods.  They won the SpeedPitch Event – and over $8,000 in services from our sponsors SEO.com, NOWadvisors, Qqest, CLI, and of course FundingUniverse!


Here’s a little about the Company:

  • THE GREAT TASE OF EATING FRESH! DFS Gourmet Food Sells brands under the Chef Shamy Gourmet Label.
  • The company started in January 2008 with the goal of bringing better tasting products to market without all the preservatives, binders, fillers and chemicals.
  • The concept was to help the at-home cook create gourmet-tasting meals at home in minutes without all the time and fuss.  Another goal was to encourage consumers to make healthy meals at home by eating fresh foods rather than out of a box. Our products bring out the great flavors in fresh produce, meats, and bakery goods.
  • We have introduced a whole new way to season and cook your meats and vegetables with the introduction of “Sauté Butters” and “Veggie Butters.” These new products, with their secret recipes of herbs and spices infused into the butters, make meal preparation a snap. We have also included some old favorites like Garlic Butter and Honey Butters. The big difference from other products like them on the market is that Chef Shamy Butters are made from just real butter & honey, while other products contain water, hydrogenated oils, and preservatives. It makes a big difference in the taste and provides a healthier product for the consumer. For us it is really “all about the taste.” We take great care with each new product that comes off the line to assure quality and satisfaction-guaranteed taste.
  • The big win with consumers in 2010 is that “less is more” when you look at the ingredient panels. Our all-natural products fit that bill to a tee.

Here’s What They Had to Say About the SpeedPitch Event

“The FundingUniverse event gave us the opportunity to show investors the win/win concept for them as well as the opportunity we are creating for two new profit centers for retailers in grocery stores, which is the key to delivering to the consumers. We are most proud to be able to say we are helping to bring a healthier living standard to home cooking with great taste.

The next steps are acquiring the needed funds to handle the growth that we have been having with 300 plus stores coming on board each and every month.”

Congratulations to Chef Shamy Gourmet and we look forward to similar upcoming events in Phoenix, Baltimore, and again in Utah.  Check FundingUniverse.com for details!
