Chef Deb



I can relate to you on every level. I started at the bottom with nothing and worked my way to the top and I have done it over and over again with five different culinary businesses to include a restaurant, catering company and three different personal chef companies in three different cities. I became a serial entrepreneur because I wanted to create a life where I could spend more time with my family. I also knew that with a certain income level, I would be able to provide my children with a college education and be able to go on vacations and live a more freedom-filled life.I'm assuming you ditched the 9-5 grind for the same reasons.

I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on mentors and coaching to help develop my businesses and I have learned from trial and error. Now I want to share that same knowledge with you so that you can be living your dreams and building a business you love.

That's why I have developed the Chef Deb brand where I help chefs grow their culinary business. It started back in 2014, when chefs started asking me to help them build the culinary business of their dreams.

Chef Deb Culinary Business Coach

Today the Chef Deb brand is all about about inspiring chefs and other culinary leaders to expand their culinary business vision, become leaders in their industry, and promote whole food choices in their business practices. I want to help and I'm willing to share my knowledge and resources on all things related to the business of culinary with chefs nationwide.

I understand how hard it is to pick up the phone and ask for help. I'm here if you need me.



Chef Deb Cantrell Culinary Business Coach Memberships and Certifications



Deb’s story began while as a licensed physical therapist. She noticed a trend that people were not healing as they should from their ailments. During that time, she read an article about becoming a personal chef while raising her infant son. When he was four years old, he received medical diagnoses that categorized him as high functioning autistic with severe ADHD among other things. After extensive research on the autism spectrum and the effects of gluten in children, she changed his diet while starting a culinary business. Realizing what a positive effect it was having on him, she was attracting other people who wanted to heal themselves through food. One client turned into five, then turned into a restaurant, then turned into five businesses. Her son wound up as a starter on the football team, a member of the honor guard, had numerous friends, and was a straight A student. Only one thing changed, and it was food. Deb knew there were other families out there and she wanted to help. Thus, SAVOR was born. The next chapter has her mentoring and coaching other chefs who have a bigger vision for their business and reputation and need help getting there.
