On this fourth installment of the Chefpreneur podcast, Chef Andres discusses setting up your personal chef business. It really isn’t that complicated and you do not have to worry about being business savvy. There are a few things you need to get like licenses and permissions from your local government, but it is totally easy to get your personal chef business started today.
Before doing any of that, you will need to name your business. You can name your business anything. Choose a name and then register for the legal rights to use that name by filing a fictitious name certificate. Once you file this, no one else can use your business name. Next, you will apply for a business license (if one is needed in your jurisdiction). You may also need to get a food safety certification or food handlers permit. Check with the state in which you live to find out if you are required to have a certification or permit. Finally, you need liability insurance to protect yourself. Someone could get sick and you could be liable or you could break equipment in your client’s kitchen. You never want to be put in a position where fingers are pointing in both directions between you and your client. The liability insurance company will help you take the proper steps to determine what really happened. Your reputation and business are on the line. Do not risk your livelihood by not getting the proper insurance.
