    About Chef Andres:
    ========================
    Chef Andres was raised with a passion for food, instilled by his grandma, “Ya-Ya,” who showed Andres so much love through the food she cooked. Warm pots of soup and fresh baked bread always inspire nostalgic memories for Andres. But entering the industry after graduating culinary school, Andres found that the fine dining scene was far from the warm memories that Ya-Ya cultivated. Food wasn’t love, it was just thankless hard work. Working in kitchens of high-end hotels like The Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, and Grand Del Mar Hotels in Chicago, San Francisco, and San Diego, Chef Andres was paying his dues like so many in the industry do—working long hours, getting yelled at by stressed-out bosses, and being constantly underappreciated and exposed to the toxic culture that underlies the restaurant industry. But he didn’t want to be just another stressed-out head chef making life miserable for young cooks working their way through the ranks. Instead, he branched out on his own to start his own business as a personal chef. 
    Now Chef Andres is able to share the love his grandmother shared with him through the foods he loves. His business now handles 30-40 cook events per month, and he doesn’t even have to do any more of the cooking! He’s able to pay his team well and give them the lives they deserve while enjoying more flexibility to share his passion and knowledge with fellow chefs by launching Chefpreneur. After creating a business and a lifestyle that he once thought was impossible, Chef Andres feels as though he’s been called upon by God to share this knowledge with all the cooks and chefs out there who need it. Outside of work, Andres savors the freedom he now has to spend plenty of time with his wife and five daughters at their home near Atlanta, GA.

    What is the 80/20 Rule?

    What is the 80/20 Rule?

    As a Chefprenuer, people often think that my job is 100% about the food. They think that if the food is amazing, the clients will enjoy it and want to book me again for another meal. Though the quality of the food is important, it’s actually only about 20% of what makes my clients more than happy to book me again or recommend me to a friend. 
     
    So, what is that other 80%? What could possibly be more important than the food I make? 
    In this episode, I’m going to teach you the 80/20 rule, where 20% of your service is focused on the food, and the other 80% is focused on your client’s experience. That 80% covers everything from how easily clients can contact you, to your attitude and behavior when you’re serving them. 
     
    Listen in for my expert advice on how to effectively use the 80/20 rule to focus on your servitude, humility, and passion, and bring in new clients that will keep coming back for more!

Cyzik ,

This podcast has changed my perspective on the culinary industry!

I love this podcast! It has given me so much insight and confidence within this field! I appreciate the willingness and passion Andres has towards his students/ people in general. I now have the motivation and inspiration to continue pursuing my personal/ private chef business that I have struggled to find hope in. Finally, I appreciate the fact that he speaks about his faith in the Lord throughout the podcasts; it speaks volumes about his character and how much God means to him! Thank you!

Victoria Spruiell ,

Love this podcast

A very informative and enjoyable podcast! (Which I just discovered!) In the most recent episode, the quote “What’s worse than having a JOB (just over broke) job is owning a JOB (just over broke) job” really stuck out to me. Looking forward to more episodes!
