To streamline the transaction process, both for myself and for my customers, I have worked out the following three-fold pricing system for the private chef services that I offer:
1. Price of ingredients & Supplies:
All food and supply orders shall be accompanied by receipts that outline the total cost of items purchased.
2. Service Fee(s):
For ongoing personal/private chef meal preparation (weekly/monthly), I am able to work with you to develop a payment plan. This can be done on a weekly or a monthly basis. For one-time catering events, the charge will vary depending upon the number guests attending the event as well as the nature of the items being ordered, i.e. varying lengths of time pertaining to shopping for ingredients and supplies as well as the time required for prep, cooking, plating, and delivery of meals. Please contact me for more information and to receive a quote.
3. Distance/Driving Fee:
Note that there is a distance/driving charge of $25 applied to locations that are situated within a 25-mile radius of greater Salt Lake City. Beyond this, I charge $25 per every additional 25-miles driven, and am able to provide personal/private chef and small-scale catering event services to locations situated up to 1 hour from the greater SLC area.
For ongoing personal/private chef services, I require an initial retainer of $500 as a means of securing services. For all one-time special event and catering orders, I ask for an initial deposit at the time of booking (amount will vary depending upon the nature of the event). Remainder of payment for catering services (minus the initial deposit) is due on the date of the event. If for some reason circumstances do change on your part, such as the cancellation of your event, I am happy to work with you, on a case-by-case basis, to resolve this.
I am able to accept payments through Venmo (mobile App) or in person (cash or check). I am also able to accept credit cards (in-person only) via Square Reader. All payments shall be accompanied by an Invoice for services rendered.
