French gastronomy at home

Our project in a few words:

Gastronomy at home: following the Covid-19 sanitary crisis, the French have developed the habit of consuming better products at home. We are therefore responding to this desire and this new habit by offering local, healthy, good for health products, 100% French and securely delivered to home.

Our store will offer two segments of products.

  • The catering segment will offer French gourmet recipes cooked by our chef, to enjoy the same day, alone or with the family. 
  • The delicatessen segment will offer products with long shelf life: cannery, vacuum-packed fish and meats, dry products, spirits and soft drinks.

The selection of products will cover from breakfast to dinner, including snacks and original aperitifs.

Our products will come from :

  • Reasoned agriculture
  • Respecting sustainable development
  • Local producers
  • 100% French and seasonal productions

We are keeping up with our time, working with passionate producers, including some of the best "Meilleurs Ouvriers de France", to help people eat local products.

Our approach includes an ecological and sustainable dimension for the environment, all the products will be presented in returnable or recyclable containers, produced in France.

The creators and the origins of our project:

Now settled on the French Riviera and always looking for good addresses, we quickly realised that there was a lack of local service on traditional French cuisine.

Our problematic was the following :

  • It is not possible to get a good, deli meal delivered to the office or in the evening at home. Even though some brasseries offer traditional dishes for lunch.
  • Often the dishes available on delivery are fatty and rich, unsuitable for our well-being.
  • Many of our friends have often expressed this desire to find good, balanced French recipes at home, rather than having to order sushi, fast food or an Indian or Chinese dish. 

We wanted to combine the possibility of having fun at home by tasting a good dish prepared just as in a restaurant, or simply by supplying good products to create a chef's or family meal without having to run to the supermarket.

Our desire and our vision of French gastronomy is to :

  • Distribute French flavors, ultra fresh products 
  • Preserve the environment
  • Promote local producers. 

The name Maison Joia also takes on its full meaning, because "Joia" means "joy" in Provençal.

The project in detail

We started working on our project in May 2020, following the confinement. Having lived in two different cities, we both realised that the French citizens would really benefit from such a service.

Our banking partner was quickly won over by the project. Even the banking employees would love to take advantage of our services. We have nevertheless waited a long time before receiving a positive response from them in this context.

We have their approval for the financing of the works to be carried out, but we would need at least € 10,000 more to finance our latest investments.

We have chosen our location, central in the city of Nice, in order to benefit from a good location and to offer our products to as many people as possible.

With the goal of opening our store in December we have little time to do everything before Christmas, and your help, no matter how little, will be welcomed.

Your role in our adventure:

After the Nice store, we want to extend our concept to other cities, in order to develop gastronomy at home. If you want to meet us in your city one day, please give us a little help!

Our products will also be available in an online store, delivered to your home within 24 hours. We look forward to sharing our products with you.

Allocation of funds

A few figures, but not too many ...

The total amount required for the launch of our project is € 72,500.

Our personal investment is € 12,500, we receive € 50,000 in funding from our partner the bank.

The € 11,000 that we ask you will be used to finish purchasing our presentation refrigerators to refine the decoration and the enhancement of our products. On which our design partner has worked beautifully.

Thank you so much for your support
