Working on a Business Plan - How much do I pay the chef?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I wasn't sure where to post this but I had a question on chefs pay. I am working through a business plan right now and will be looking to hire dynamic, friendly chefs to conduct cooking classes and other sort of demonstrations. How much would you expect to get paid per hour for this type of work? You wouldn't have to develop the class or event. Just lead and cook.

 

thanks

Depends on what your market will bear. Most would charge a day rate, in Manhattan it will be much more than in a flyover state. I would say $200-500 a day depending on your location.

 

@Brandon ODell, a member here owns a personal chef business and is involved in this type of venture. Read some of his posts, I know this subject has been talked about in the past.

To teach> Based on what schools charge students. My absolute minimum $30.00 per hour. They can well afford it.

Thank you for the responses. I was thinking $25 or $30 per hour. We are 1 hour north of NYC.
