    Professional Chef
    Hi Chefs-  my husband and I are starting a personal chef business.  We have over 40 years combined of professional chef experience and are wanting to branch out into this aspect of the business.  We are looking for advice on how to set up the business.  Can anyone tell us which would be better for a personal chef/ in-home catering business, LLC or Sole Proprietorship?

    Thanks!

    If its going to be a good active business, then a limited liability corp is best. It protects your assets should you get sued for something . Food poisoning, breaking something , someone falls etc
