Chef Consulting

You want to become a star in the culinary world and transform your dreams of being a chef to actually making it your bread and butter. But sauteeing and julienning sound like more familiar terms than marketing and branding. And, you don’t know where to start to get your name out there.

Imagine how life would be when you become famous for your culinary wizardry:

  • Your restaurant has standing room only every night and a mile-long reservation waitlist
  • You are flooded with email inquiries from strangers who want you to cook in their home
  • Your voicemail is full from all of the messages asking you to showcase your menu at an out-of-state festival or gauging your interest on future restaurant concepts

Achieving these things don’t have to be hard if you nail down your marketing and branding strategy. That’s where I come in.

My name is Erica Key, and for years, I’ve showcased chefs on my website and highlighted their food, their personality and their accolades. In my experience, the most successful chefs are the ones who are already prepared to market themselves. The chefs who go unnoticed aren’t any less talented than them: they just don’t know how to market themselves to achieve chef stardom. With my marketing and branding know-how, I’ve turned my blog into a profitable business, and I know I can help chefs do the same for their business.
