Becoming a personal chef – start a business

Becoming a personal chef sound appealing? Becoming a personal chef is one of the hottest business ideas. People who become personal chefs provide meal preparation services. They plan menus, shop for groceries, and prepare meals using a client’s own kitchen. Then they freeze and label the meals — and clean up.

If you start a personal chef business, you’ll probably target busy professionals and families, people with special diets, and seniors. Many professionals work long hours or travel frequently and they’d prefer to have healthy home-cooked meals. Families may also prefer your services to the latest from the drive-through menu. And many people will pay extra to have low carb, diabetic, vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free meals. Moreover, with the greying of the population and the increased pressures on the “sandwich generation”, personal chef services will be a popular choice for seniors.
