I put my listing on www.chefsearch.ca and get about 20 calls a month from it. people don’t go to American sites to look for Canadian Chefs. This is perfect. I can’t wait for www.topchefs4hire.com – what a cool name! It is sure to bring us a lot of [internet] traffic.
If I was to recommend TCA to a chef, I would go with the platinum membrship. i did the email blast and booked a bunch of dinner parties for Jan and Feb when I knew I would be quiet. I discounted the dinners for those 2 months, but sold add-ons when I spoke to the customers, and even had 1 book me again for her 40th birthday - that was for 18 people.
Just provided one of my first Chef Experiences. The highlight for the event to this client was: they were extremely happy with the professional service provided at the comfort of their home.They already referred me to someone they know. Its great for the business.
