According to the U.S. Department of Labor one of the fastest growing segments of the food service business is providing professional personal chef services. Personal chefs can expect to make between $100 and $400 a day every day. Until recently having a chef prepare food for you and your family was considered a luxury for only the wealthy. Today, many individuals and families have discovered that a personal chef service is an affordable, time saving, and healthy alternative to the stress and time constraints of working to put a wholesome, economical, and tasty meal on the table every night. A personal chef offers a professional service of meal preparation. A client's individual tastes drive the creation of their customized menu. These personalized meals are prepared either in the client s home or your catering kitchen and then packaged, labeled, possibly delivered, and stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Most services include complete grocery shopping, customized menu planning, and storage in oven/microwavable containers.<br. Families in which both spouses work, singles and couples who work long, hard hours, seniors who would rather not or cannot cook anymore, gourmets who love to cook but who do not always have the time, and individuals that have medical conditions, such as wheat/gluten intolerance, milk or other sensitivities, diabetes, or high blood pressure, who require specialized meals will seek your services. This book will not teach you how to cook, although there are some sample menus. What you will learn is all the aspects of starting your business, pricing your products, marketing your business, and conducting your day-to-day business operations. This comprehensive new book will show you step-by-step how to set up, operate, and manage a financially successful personal chef business. The author has left no stone unturned in explaining the risky business of food service. The book covers the entire process of a personal chef business from startup to ongoing management in an easy to understand way, pointing out methods to increase your chances of success and showing you how to avoid the common mistakes that can doom a startup. While providing detailed instructions and examples, the author leads you through finding a location that will bring success (in your home or a rented kitchen), managing and training employees, accounting and bookkeeping procedures, auditing, successful budgeting, and profit planning development, as well as thousands of great tips and useful guidelines. You also will learn how to draw up a winning business plan, how to set up computer systems to save time and money, how to hire and keep a qualified staff, how to generate high profile public relations, and how to keep bringing customers back. In addition, you will become familiar with basic cost control systems, profitable menu planning, successful kitchen management, equipment layout and planning, food safety and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), low cost marketing ideas, and low and no cost ways to satisfy customers and build sales.    The companion CD-ROM is included with the print version of this book; however is not available for download with the electronic version.  It may be obtained separately by contacting Atlantic Publishing Group at [email protected] Atlantic Publishing is a small, independent publishing company based in Ocala, Florida.

Reviews about How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Personal Chef Business: With Companion CD - ROM (7):
superstar
The author spends far too much time discussing what are essentially elements of catering and not personal chef services.
Much of what she talks about would require extensive licensing and inspection as well as insurance.

No aspect of business specific needs is addressed (business matters that only apply to personal chefs). She only discusses food items and utensils, not licenses, rules, or regulations to investigate.

The list of items she says should be part of a traveling cooking kit is so extensive you would need a minivan to transport it. I'm not exaggerating for effect. Most of what she suggests should be carried is at best nonsensical.

An entire section is dedicated to employee hiring (what?) and another on web development. Both are unnecessary.

I've been a professional cook and chef for 16 years and was looking for some pointers for switching over to a private practice.

Skip this book.

I did not find this to be very helpful. It's got the most basic of information on what businesses are and I needed more guidance on how each cook day at a client's house is best set up. It provides nothing on that. The best thing it had was a list of must-haves (appliances, cookware, spices). Other than that, I would not recommend.

Still reading, but there is a lot of good information if you're interested in starting your own personal chef business.
