Chef It Up & Chef It Up 2 Go Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Chef it Up 2 Go is the low cost approach to getting in our business for just $25,000. We even reach out to the schools in their designated territory once under contract to generate a buzz and get them contracts all while they are completing training. No guesswork in it and it's a great opportunity to add an additional income of $25k thru $60k to their family. I would be happy to put them in touch with other franchisees so they can see how quickly they made their money back (most have been within 1 year or less of purchase!). All products and supplies are always peanut & tree nut free and we are a food allergy friendly company. Everything is discussed in detail at training once under contract and menu items are provided for all our programs. Their territory is protected too so no other chef it up 2 go's will operate within a certain distance.

CHEF IT UP - party places we will work closely with franchisee to ensure they can effectively get their facility up and running in a timely manner once under contract with their landlord for space. Training will begin quickly and we will promote on social media and generate a buzz and get grand opening in place.
