Membership with the United States Personal Chef Association Comes with Liability Insurance

LogoInsurance is extremely important to have when running a business, however, insurance categories offer very little options for Personal Chefs.

For this reason, the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA) has created a unique program that allows all active USPCA members to participate and receive basic liability insurance coverage.
