Want To Contribute?
We’re always interested in varying perspectives relating to food entrepreneurship, so let’s get you some info!
First, there are two types of content pieces we publish, articles and interviews.
We don’t accept unsolicited submissions for either, but we do accept pitches for both.
After you pitch an idea, we may invite you to create your masterpiece to be added to our editorial calendar.
Fair warning, we’re a bit strict with our guidelines when it comes to guest submissions because we take a lot of pride in delivering quality content to the Entrepreneurial Chef community.
So, if think you’ve got what it takes than read on!
Please note: If your pitch does not adhere to the guidelines below, you may not receive a response.
Quality. We look for great writing, so we may ask you to go through several revisions and edits before we publish.
Originality. Anything published before will not be accepted. However, with some topics, there are only so many ways to explain them, so we can accepted repurposed content at times (it’s still not word for word though).
Understand Our Audience. Our readership is comprised of aspiring and active food entrepreneurs – from culinary students to CEO’s – who seek ideas, inspiration, and actionable advice. In essence, anyone who knows how to cook or bake comes to our platform to learn how to monetize their talent in various ways.
Content Topics. As previoiusly stated, our audience strives to monetize their cooking and/or baking talents to build a business centered on their passion. That said, topics could Funding, Marketing, Branding, Financial Management, Social Media, Menu Engineering, Leadership, Management, Hiring & Firing, Commercial Space, Productivity, General Entrepreneurship, Pricing Strategies, Public Relations & Communications, Growth Strategies, Food Blogging, Selling Techniques, Etc. The possiblities are almost endless as long as it helps aspiring or active food entrepreneurs monetize their passion for serving others with their food.
Actionable. Our main requirement is that your article provides useful and actionable advice to our audience.
Clear & Concise. We don’t have word requirements, but articles tend to be 600-1200 words and interviews tend to be 1500-2500 words. No matter the length, the information should be detailed without sounding repetitive.
Promotion. Entrepreneurial Chef will promote on various channels, depending on where the content is published (website or magazine), but we ask that you engage in sharing the content as well.
