The Chef Alliance

At The Chef Alliance, we are dedicated to helping you succeed in your Culinary and Foodservice Career, bringing you a range of membership benefits to lower your business costs.


WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MEMBERSHIP?

All of our membership packages include our Core Member Benefits and access to a range of additional member benefits, such as liability insurance.  See below for more details.  


Does your business already have liability coverage?  You can also join The Chef Alliance at our CLASSIC levels which do not include liability coverage - these allow your business to benefit from the wide range of discounts and services that we offer directly and through our partners.  See below for more details.


WHAT IS THE LENGTH OF MEMBERSHIP?

Our standard Term is 1 year, starting July 1st and ending on June 30th the following year.  However, you can start at ANY time throughout the year, and your first Term will end on June 30th.  So, for example, if you start in August, the first Term is 11 months (Aug-Jun); if you start in December, the first Term is 7 months (Dec - Jun).  Renewals occur automatically on July 1st unless we have been notified by April 1st prior to the renewal date.  In some instances, we can also offer 1-month, 3-month and 6-month options. 


WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?

There are two options: pre-authorised credit card payments and online banking Interac e-transfers.  We also have a number of payment plans to suit every budget including:
- annual, lump sum payments
- 2-Pay plan (1 payment to start, and 1 payment on the 1st of the following month)
- 3-Pay plan (1 payment to start, 1 payment on the 1st of the following two months)
- 4-Pay plan (1 payment to start, and 3 payments throughout the term)
- Monthly plan (1 payment to start, and 1 payment on the 1st of each month)


HOW DO I START?

Getting started is easy.  Contact a Success Manager for pricing and an application form.  We can't wait to help you on the road to success!

Notes:

All food sales, services and virtual cooking classes etc. must be within Canada.  Gross annual sales must be below $80,000.00.  Sales through retail stores and large production amounts are not be covered.  All rates quoted above are subject to HST and subject to change without notice.  Renewals are automatic and subject to annual increases.  No refunds; cancellations part-way through the Term can be accommodated if the full amount owing for the entire Term is paid.  Membership benefits are subject to change without notice.
