    I am planning to open a Pastry shop to cater to special needs like low calorie, fat, sugar and others.

    I am looking for an interested Chef who can join us to lead this venture.

    Would also appreciate if you all can direct me to right way to start it.

    Thanks

    RG

    Are you looking for a partner? 

    Sweat equity?

    Start up, train, and trouble shoot for a 3-6 mths contract?
