“I printed each page of the websites of the three major organizations. My husband and I read over them many times - comparing points on each one.  By the time I felt like I knew everything I could learn from reading - looking at websites of members of the different affiliations, I decided to make some phone calls. I made more than one call, but my conversation with Candy Wallace made my decision for me. This is the right profession for me, and APPCA is the best professional association to help me succeed.”

About American Personal & Private Chef Association

The American Personal and Private Chef Association is the gold standard in the industry. We are not only flattered by imitation, but moved by it to constantly innovate, and continually raise the bar on service to our membership.

We represent personal and private chefs—giving them a professional posture that allows this growing industry to sustain and flourish.

We have created Home Training Systems and Live Jump Start Seminars that bridge the huge gap from a dream of owning a successful business to a reality of a viable, profitable career.
Explore our site to learn more about us, our training programs and our membership benefits, and please call (800) 644-8389 with any questions on the industry or what APPCA can offer you.

Here are just a few of our industry-setting innovations:

Many people love to cook, but not everyone knows how to set up and successfully operate a personal-chef service. This industry is new, and we want you to be successful in it. That way, we can all grow together.

APPCA’s philosophy is simple—we promote the education and advancement of our membership in the personal- and private-chef industry, and the betterment of the industry as a whole.

We’re here for you.
