Personal Chefs

Although the personal chef industry initially experienced strong growth (the national publications Entrepreneur, Time, US News & World Report, and others once listed personal chef services as one of the hottest new businesses), the profession is experiencing a slowdown. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of private household cooks and chefs, including personal chefs, is expected to decline by 1 percent through 2022, reflecting the general downturn in private households hiring service help. Further fueling the decline in the field is the growing popularity and convenience of prepared meals-to-go available in grocery stores and specialty food stores.
