We are excited to be launching this industry-changing platform and greatly appreciate your interest in our program.
We look forward to serving you and your colleagues for many years to come.
Chefs Network is a full service social networking site customized for Chefs and Suppliers. We have devised a program that allows you and your sales team to network with your local customers, share content, and deliver marketing material. In addition to networking, our web portal allows both chefs and suppliers to customize their media experience with relevant industry related content.
Chefs Network is building a social matrix with which you can network directly current and prospective customers. A social network is the ideal platform to be able to share information, and no one needs to be in better communication than suppliers and their chef buyers. Suppliers will be able to keep chefs informed about price increases, new products, closeouts, sales, availability or just about anything else you could want to communicate through creative profile and status updates.
Supplier reps will be able to stay in contact with their cilents, and the media that matters in the first ever business to business network for the foodservice industry.
Suppliers can opt to join the program, giving them
and their sales force access to our chef membership base.
Different membership types are under development, here is a basic overview of how membership works
As a Supplier User, your profile is designed to act as a "billboard" of sorts allowing you and your sales force to deliver sales material, new products and news through creative status updates and networking. You and your sales force can drive traffic to your own profile (landing) page complete with analytics and reporting.
The ChefsNetwork web portal is divided into eight effective modules: a customizable dashboard and seven categories, each representing a significant sector of the industry.
"Reps Desk" Dashboard
The Reps Desk dashboard allows you to select and customize the type of content you wish to access frequently, where you can populate the space with jobs, news, short cuts, widgets and social media feeds.
Our marketplace is an Amazon style portal to online merchandise with thousands of categorized products from uniforms and shoes to ring molds, cook books, and of course,
knives. 35 categories in all bring you comparison shopping and with chefs selecting all the products for our portal, you have assured quality.
The manage page gives you access to many different tools to manage your day, such as document template downloads, recipe databases, menu template downloads, stock photography, links and resources for all levels of management..
The country’s first nationwide directory of wholesale suppliers and procurement options, divided by regional and national companies. We categorize and list all wholesale procurement options from meat, produce and seafood all the way to first aid supply, equipment repair and linen rental..
Online jobs? We go quite a bit further. In addition to curating jobs from all over the internet. We have compiled a tremendous amount of resource material to help you "make the most of your job search”. Chefs Network will host resume templates, career development material, recruiters and many other job seeking tools.
With a culinary renaissance in the media world right now, there is a host of incredible and informative content available online, but it’s scattered everywhere. Chefs Network is creating the first culinary media portal, curating our news and media into 50 major categories, like pastry, celebrity chefs, food science, startups, and reviews. This allows you to focus your media browsing experience on your interests.
Chefs are always learning, and it is more important now than ever to stay on the top of your game. The Chefs Network Learn page brings you streaming video, seminars, lectures, coursework, continuing education, stage opportunities, text book instruction and culinary program listings, supporting chefs from the bottom up.
Chefs Network will be community based, focusing significant efforts within the regions that are driving this industry. By bringing local news, local farms and producers, local events, local jobs, local marketing and many other local initiatives that concern and benefit our food communities nationwide, we intend to give back to our partner markets in a creative way.
Thank You For Your Time!
We will be in development mode over the next six to nine months, during which time we welcome any feedback of suggestions.
