Why "Regular People" are Hiring Personal Chefs
Personal Chefs are More Affordable Than You Think
Not too long ago, hiring a personal chef was a privilege reserved solely for celebrities and the ultra-rich. But, as they are apt to do, the times they are a'changin. Thanks to a recent influx of savvy chefs stepping in to fill the culinary void created by our ever-busier schedules, employing a personal chef is now more attainable (and necessary) than ever. Take that all you Oprahs of the world.
Let's face it, who has time to do ANYTHING anymore? Our fast-paced lives have us running on an ever-quickening hamster wheel of stressors that we can't seem to figure out how to get off. It's no wonder then that everybody is searching for convenient solutions to the few problems in their lives that they actually can control. Heck, I'd go so far as to say that convenience is more in-demand right now than the next reiteration of the Cronut.
Enter the era of the affordable personal chef.
With convenience as the name of the game, a growing number of chefs are abandoning traditional career paths in order to answer the public's cry for time-saving services. Beckoned by a more convivial, less frenzied life, both hardened restaurant chefs and recent culinary grads are happy to turn their talents on everyday individuals and families.
In fact, Entrepreneur magazine rates the personal chef industry as the 4th fastest growing home-based business in the country, and it's easy to see why business just keeps on booming. A personal chef who eliminates the burden of grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning, is appealing for people who not only struggle to find the time to cook but also don't want to spend the little time they do have sweating over a hot stove. I totally get it. Free-time is gold and if you can spend it doing something you enjoy, say catching up on the Real Housewives, life seems just a little less hectic.
