Opening a culinary school.
Not every young girl can boast of the ability to cook deliciously now, and the saying “the way to a man’s heart is through the stomach” has not lost its relevance. Fashion cooking at home is fueled by TV shows and articles in fashion magazines, and it is desirable not only to be able to cook, but to cook as tasty as in restaurants. It’s difficult and boring to learn from books and cooking television shows, you need a mentor, an experienced cook. Opening a culinary school with good teachers is a fashionable and profitable business.
You can open a culinary school on the basis of the existing restaurant or cafe in addition to the main business, or engage only in training, equipping the room under the kitchen.
There are several training programs, general, where they teach the basics of culinary skill , thematic courses (national cuisines, etc.), training and professional development of professionals for restaurants, as well as classes for children who do not so much teach as entertain children and their parents .
Usually classes are held several times a week and last for several hours; there should be no more than 10 people in a group so that the cook can effectively teach, show and help each student. You can organize lectures throughout the day, in the morning there will be fewer people, more in the evening.
The three main whales on which the culinary school's business is built are a teacher, a room and equipment. An experienced cook with the talents of a teacher should teach culinary art, not every specialist can teach well. Finding a good team of teachers is not so easy, and this is perhaps the most difficult part of this business. It should be borne in mind that people go to cooking classes not only to learn how to cook tasty food, but also to expand their social circle. Ideally, when the classroom establishes a warm and friendly atmosphere.
It is also important to find a comfortable, spacious room and equip it with all necessary equipment for the kitchen.
The cost of classes will depend on the positioning and your city, the initial classes in large cities cost from 1000 rubles, thematic and professional from 2000 rubles. As a rule, in culinary schools the sale of subscribers is practiced, with the purchase of a monthly subscriber the cost of each lesson is cheaper.
When calculating the cost, you should take into account all costs (rent, teacher’s salary, the cost of products, etc.), if there are competitors in the city, ask for their rates. Only after you get a good cost-benefit ratio on paper is it worth starting your own culinary school.
Before the opening of the school, it will be a good idea to think over an advertising campaign; the potential audience of the culinary school is young girls and housewives. Advertising on the Internet and in print media targeted at a female audience can have the greatest effect.
An excellent option for filling the school on weekends can be the organization of children's culinary classes, children with pleasure together with their parents play cooks, prepare delicious dishes, and then eat them. The cost of such classes starts from 1000 rubles per month.
To ensure better profitability, the culinary school may engage in other types of business, for example, catering. Cooking and delivering food to corporate clients can be a significant additional income for cooking courses.
Its culinary school can become a profitable and interesting business, especially true for large cities, where many people want to learn how to cook as tasty as in restaurants.
