Meet Albert Melera of Kooshi Gourmet in West Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Albert Melera.

Albert, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
The idea of Kooshi started after a ten-year tenure working as a personal chef in LA for celebrity clients like Adam Sandler, Bill Gates, Arianna Huffington, and Salma Hayek. As I learned to premeditate their needs, I realized there was probably a larger market for what I was doing – busy people who want healthy, gourmet meals customized to their specific diets. I partnered with another talented chef, Amanda, and we created Kooshi Gourmet.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Every company has its challenges. But each obstacle we’ve faced has made us better and stronger as a team. By staying true to our mission and having great people on board, we’ve been able to continue growing and expanding. And that’s really exciting.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Kooshi Gourmet – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
We deliver chef-prepared, organic and gluten-free meals daily to the greater LA and Orange County areas. We are food enthusiasts who are passionate about creating healthy and hassle-free meals for people who live full, busy lives.

Being a Kooshi Gourmet client is like having a private chef. It all comes down to our commitment to quality and the freshness of our ingredients. We source ingredients, prepare, package and deliver your meals all within 24 hours. Each dish is hand-prepared by our team of talented chefs and delivered to your door each day. That attention to detail is what sets us apart.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Next year, we’re proud to be expanding our meal deliveries beyond southern California to San Francisco and San Diego. It’s exciting to share our passion for healthy, gourmet food with people who haven’t been able to get this kind of service before.
