    APCA Live Seminar attendee asks a question

    Thank you for your interest in the American Personal Chef Institute©. In these times of corporate downsizings and layoffs, owning your own business makes more and more sense. It can be rewarding both personally and financially, and you control your own destiny. We have developed a Training System and Live Seminar entitled "THE BUSINESS OF DOING BUSINESS AS A PERSONAL CHEF" © that will effectively and efficiently enable you to create and develop your own business - a Personal Chef Business.

    Testimonial From a Recent Seminar Alum
    Thank you so much for providing a seminar with substance! It is a relief to know there are pros out there willing to teach and share without gouging me on a price for a personal chef training program. I already KNOW how to cook, what I needed to know was how to set up and operate a successful business.

    I did the research on groups and when I discovered the APCA is the group that originated the 2-day jump start seminars that have been copied and that the APCA has been teaching the 2-day seminars for over 10 years, I knew I was in good hands.

    What a seminar! The written materials and the commitment and professionalism of the seminar leaders made all the difference. I loved the APCA seminar, and I know I am going to love being a successful personal chef. Thank you for your hard work and commitment to helping people like myself live the lives we love.

    Many thanks,

    Chef David

    This new service industry is exciting and profitable. In fact, 'Entrepreneur' Magazine lists "Personal Chef" as one of the 12 HOTTEST BUSINESSES FOR 1999, in their January, 1999 issue. You will learn what it takes to get started in this exciting field, how to find clients, how to design your service and produce written presentation materials, where and when to advertise, what types of recipes work best for your clients, what to charge and how to be successful in your own business.

    You can spend the time gathering all of the information contained in the American Personal Chef Institute tm Manual by yourself, OR You can save not only your time, your work, and your energy, but you can also save money by using the proven American Personal Chef Institute tm Seminar Manual and Training System which now included our comprehensive Video Library.

    People start their own businesses every day - we know that - but why spend months or even years of trial and error when APCI tm can give you the benefit of their experience (we've already done the trial and error part) in starting and running your own successful Personal Chef Business.

    Lots of people love to cook, but not everyone knows how to set up and successfully operate a Personal Chef Service - the industry is very new and we want you to be successful in it. That way, we can all grow together.

    There are NO hidden costs involved in this program and NO "membership" fees charged before you can purchase the program (which entitles you to a year's membership to the American Personal Chef Association.) You DO NOT need to spend a "fortune" to receive the most effective training materials and Seminar in the industry!

    The APCI tm Training System delivers QUALITY AND VALUE for your dollar.
