Should You Buy The Tattooed Chef? (TTCF)

Tattooed Chef (TTCF) looks to be promising for the long-term haul. Let’s see why. 

The Tattooed Chef is a plant-based company that sells frozen foods in retailers like Costco, Walmart and Sams Club. The US frozen food market is worth about 55 billion and the Tattooed Chef is trying to disrupt the market with quality foods that are plant-based. A big part of this change is coming through the Millennial generation and Generation Z.

The average millennial and Gen Z cannot cook, so what do they do take out and frozen foods. But with more of a focus on vegan and plant-based foods. This is where the Tattooed Chef comes out to shine.

The average man spends close to $300 at the grocery store and for women, it’s even more at $323.

How large is the Millennial and Z generation in America you ask? 133 million Americans large and if they spend per se 20 dollars each for frozen foods that are plant-based based. That is around 2.6 billion USD of revenue for the TTCF.

TTCF Stock Price 

Currently, the stock trades at $22.22 USD, as of close on Friday. 

Just in case you don’t know, TTCF trades on the NASDAQ with a market cap of 1.80B. Year to date the stock hasn’t done much in terms of price movement, almost staying flat between 20 – 30 USD.

Tattooed Chef stock does not pay any dividends currently. (It neither has paid in the past)

Well, The ability to have innovative products with a potential of 62 SKUs in 2021 and they are targeting around 200 SKUs.

Also, Tattooed Chef is vertically integrated meaning that they own all forms of manufacturing and idea-sharing. They can go from an idea to market in 3 days (now, that’s brilliant).

Remember, Tattoed Chef has all types of frozen foods in their product line up such as Single-Serve Bowls, Smoothie Bowls, Vegetable Blends, Meat alternatives and Plant powered Pizzas. They also have launched a European commerce site as it will draw in new customers from all over the US.

The company currently has around 200K space of manufacturing room. But it is important to note that they have doubled the space in 2020 and will again double in 2021 (manufacturing room).

Also, The company is ramping up production as they are on target to reach 62 different SKUs. They have a plant in Italy and a plant in California. The Italy plant will especially be good for the European expansion in 2024. Their Certifications are on another level they have all of the organic seals approved from the USDA.
