our proprietary "chef rank" algorithm.
Why ACA is better than other organizations?
Over time, many organizations have developed a reputation for allowing anyone (even those with no skills, training, or
qualifications) join their network, so as long as a member has money to buy into their program. Employers have caught on,
and now savvy clients want quality chefs. They know they can count on us to recommend a chef that is not only
knowledgeable and technically proficient, but also someone who is dependable, and professional. We match the client with
a chef who specializes in the type of service the client is requesting, while offering quality income producing opportunities to
Our only interest is making the client happy, and the chef successful.
