Chefs by Dineindulge
Partnering with a number of hospitality providers (including hotel groups, restaurants, garden centres and retail operators) has transformed Dineindulge into a platform which opens up the skillset and talent of our own chef delivery team to other operators. The flexibility of the platform allows control over rates of pay in line with their budgets. This means successfully staffing their kitchens with exceptionally talented chefs without hefty agency fees or employee liabilities. Our chefs love the platform as well and have created fantastic relationships with our client partners. It’s a rare success story for an industry, which has been particularly turbulent in recent years.
‘Dineindulge has been a great platform to attract chefs in unprecedented times. What I have found most helpful is the set up. By opening up bookings and tailored shifts I have been able to plan ahead a few weeks knowing that I have shifts covered. The chefs have been of a good standard and most importantly have had a good attitude and work ethic. I would be more than happy to recommend Dineindulge to others and look forward to our continued partnership in the future.’ Alexander House (Hospitality Partner)
‘In the past few months, we have had the pleasure of working with some fantastic chefs from Dineindulge. The communication between Dineindulge, their chefs and us is very good. The Dineindulge team have been very supportive and helpful which makes the whole process a lot easier. It has been a pleasure to work with you and your team and I hope this continues moving forward.’ Rowhill Grange (Hospitality Partner)
Where it began…
We are all too aware of the volatile state of the industry currently, being a hospitality provider ourselves. ‘Turbulence’ is an understatement in recent years, but we are enthused and encouraged by the continued desire of clients for a high level of cuisine. This appetite to enjoy great food together is matched with the exemplary talent of chefs in this country, talent we are uncovering every day. We have a dedicated recruitment team at Dineindulge and we are still astounded by the scale of talent and passion out there, proving invaluable for the future of the industry.
Chefs by Dineindulge pairs this talent with hospitality providers who require flexible chef support. The platform responds to the demand from chefs for varied work opportunities which fulfil their passion to work in commercial kitchens alongside the independence they enjoy from private events. The concept of being able to access a hand-picked network of professionals as needed, at a rate they could afford, was an immediate success for our premium hospitality partners back in 2020. This success only continues to flourish, with appeal for provider and chef alike.
A healthier working environment for hospitality professionals…
The flexibility to select shifts around other commitments, has encouraged a much healthier and happier chef team. The reward of demonstrating their talents in various professional settings allows them to manage their work/life balance and reap the financial benefits of working for themselves.
‘Along with my own catering, I work with Dineindulge about two/three times a week. I do private events and some shifts at a great hotel that is near my home. It’s a short commute and it’s great to be able to step away from the day to day of my own business and work within a team again. The platform helps me be organised and plan my weeks, so I can see what I’m earning, choose what I can work and also leaves time to see a bit of the family! It’s really changed the way I’m living now and I’m getting regular work that I need to support my own stuff’ Ryan, Dineindulge private chef
This is as a collaboration that provides reliability as well as flexibility for both hospitality operator and chef contractor. Chefs by Dineindulge reacts to the changing dynamic and culture of the hospitality industry. Allowing the contractor and chef to select their own rates of pay, the system works to restore the balance between affordability for operators and financial stability for the chef.
