Recent Article - Why Canadians are Choosing Restaurants over the Kitchen
Canadians are increasingly foregoing home cooked grub for quicker, ready-to-eat meals or dining at a restaurant, a new study suggests. A Dalhousie University survey found nearly 42 per cent of Canadians are either buying ready-to-eat meals or eating at a restaurant once or twice a week, while another 3 per cent admitted to doing so on a daily basis.
"One of the scariest things about starting my own business was the thought of being sued because of a mistake. I have a young family, and although I have over 10 years of cooking experience in top restaurants, it took a lot of courage and support from my friends and family to take the leap. Finding The Chef Alliance was a godsend - knowing that I have the insurance to protect me and my clients took a huge weight off my shoulders. I've now been a Personal Chef for over 6 years, and haven't had to call on the insurance, yet I wouldn't be without it. It's my safety net and my peace of mind."
"Since becoming a member of The Chef Alliance, I not only feel more secure working as a personal chef as a result of the insurance and legal benefits, but I feel more secure knowing that I am a part of a community of great chefs, all working towards the same goal – creating restaurant quality food in the comfort of people’s own homes. The Chef Alliance has given me the opportunity to both expand my network of clients and receive discounted rates on services that benefit the growth of my business."
