The Ambassador Card – The Chef’s Dining Card
CREATING A BETTER INDUSTRY - CHEF'S ROUND TABLE – KILLARNEY
The above Event was held in ”The Brehon Hotel” Oct 9, 2018, Associated with CHEF NETWORK SKILLNET through the platform of this event we were asked to discuss the following…
Working towards a Charter for a Better Kitchen Workplace that all chefs, employers and employees can sign-up to as a statement of intent to bring greater professionalism to the career of the chef and to ensure every effort is made to provide a healthy and happy workplace for chefs, and that the industry becomes a better place to work and more attractive for chefs to remain in and enter the career.
Through this event it was widely agreed that
“Encouraging Chefs to explore, “The Dining Experience” from a Customers perspective Greatly nurtures inter team spirit, Promotes Learning and development of Chef’s and encapsulates a positive work- Life balance”
What are the barriers to encouraging Chefs to Dine out more?
Most Chef’s will tell you that the prohibiting factor in exploring the dining experience is the cost, Chef’s would like to visit different establishments and learn by the experience but the overriding factor is the Cost epically in Tourist areas or High Class establishments.
The Solution is “The Ambassador Card” a exclusive nationwide industry card which allows the Chef to Dine out at cost price in any of the participating restaurants or Hotels.
The Simple solution is a win-win for both the owner and Chef, the owner covers his/her food cost, Chooses the time the card will be accepted, markets his/her establishment to a new audience and gains from the ambassadorial roll of the Chef.
