    You are a chef for hire ---How much do you need to make per day--include your selling time--shopping--on site time and bill collecting time----add a cushion for the unexpected and profit and you have your price.

    If you could not cook, what would it cost you to hire one? 

    If you price things correctly,you could hire out the work and still make a profit----that is the gold standard.

    Are you also providing the food?
