Is this career for you?

  • Do you cook for a living, but are tired of the long hours and low pay?
  • Are you an experienced self-taught cook who wants to turn your talents into a home-based business?
  • Do you have a business background and a passion for cooking and want to make a career change?
  • Are you an experienced personal chef looking for a group to provide ongoing support and information for your business, plus networking and personal growth opportunities?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, a career as a Personal Chef and membership in the Canadian Personal Chef Association (CPCA) might be just what you're looking for.

As a Personal Chef, you will provide a valuable service for your clients, find satisfaction from doing something you love, and be your own boss.

To become a successful, profitable Personal Chef, you will need the best information, training and support you can get. Our mission is to provide the "how-to's", recipes, marketing and operational knowledge that will help you get your business off to the best start, as quickly as possible.

The signature of a CPCA personal chef is the quality and storability of their finished recipes. Excellent food is what keeps your clients coming back. Along with business training, you will have access to hundreds of recipes that have been tested and proven by your colleagues for storability and taste upon re-heating. This lets you focus on finding new clients, instead of spending hours and money developing and perfecting your own recipes.

Starting your own business is scary, but unlike most small business owners, you will have an entire team of peers rooting for you.  Need marketing ideas, special diet recipes, help finding great equipment? No problem.  Your membership in the Canadian Personal Chef Association (CPCA) links you to an extensive network of on-going support. 

And that's not all.  In addition to local support, Canadian media coverage and access to other personal chefs across Canada via our website, you will be invted to attend any local chapters, events and conferences.  You will also have access to an insurance program designed for the way you operate your business, with attractive premiums for CPCA members.

Knowledge is the most lucrative investment you can make - the payoff is your own success. Joining the Canadian Personal Chef Association will be one of the best investments you can make in your new career now, and in the future as you get your business up and running.
