charge for cooking for a women's seminar?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi folks,  I have an unusual request for my business and don't know how to set labor cost.  I normally cook meals for people in their homes (personal chef business model), but I have been asked to cook for 9 women attending a 3-1/2 day retreat at a remote beach house on the Gulf of Mexico.  It would include 3 dinners and 3 lunches. Dinners include dessert. This is 2 hours from my home town, so I will be staying in the area, along with my associate chef.  All meals will be gluten and dairy free.  My normal rate is $325 to prepare 20 servings of food in one day (about an 8 hour day, not including planning).  Any thoughts on what I should propose for labor costs?  I can figure the food and other costs out. 

 

Thanks for your help.

I honestly probably shouldn't advise as I've never been a personal chef but since you already have a decent flat fee, I'd charge your regular fee plus room for you and your associate. Does this sound right? Maybe plus traveling expenses (I.e. Gas)
