About the American
Thank you for your interest in the American Personal & Private Chef Association ©. 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 Home Training Systems and Live Jump Start Seminars to enable you to create and develop your own business - a Personal Chef Business.
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 training systems 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 "The Business of Doing Business as a Personal Chef" Training System which now included our comprehensive Video Seminar and Special Skills Library.
People start their own businesses every day - we know that - but why spend months or even years of trial and error when APPCA 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.
Many 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 our programs. You DO NOT need to spend a "fortune" to receive the most effective training materials and Seminar in the industry!
The APPCA Training Systems delivers QUALITY AND VALUE for your dollar.
DON'T WAIT!!! Be Your Own Boss in 2007!
Let's get cooking!
