Why CHEFS FOR SENIORS ~ Minneapolis?

Our mission is to provide amazing food and proper nutrition






Meet The Local Owners

Jim and Doni have been sharing their passion for food, health and wellness for years.

Jim has spent his entire career working in the food and beverage industry, often hand-in-hand with many top-rated restaurants across the country. This exposure inspired him to learn more about food and soon he was creating delicious meals of his own. Friends, family, and neighbors are always welcome at his table and nothing brings him more joy than sharing his craft with others and building those relationships over food. You can often find Jim at a local market selecting fresh, seasonal ingredients for that day’s creation.  This passion is a perfect segue into Chefs for Seniors.

Doni, a Minneapolis native, is a registered nurse. She is a natural caregiver who has devoted her life to the health and wellness of others.  Her time spent at many highly-accredited hospitals has reinforced her belief in the importance of nutrition on overall health and wellness.

This commitment has brought nutrition to the forefront of Jim’s cooking as they strive to create healthy, yet delicious alternatives to traditional favorites.  No dish is complete without her seal of approval.

Together, Jim and Doni make a wonderful team and are thrilled to take on this adventure where health and delicious food collide. They look forward to the opportunity to connect with you, your palette, and your preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ What does the service cost?

The price of our services are region-specific and depends on your individual needs. Our goal is to provide an affordable solution that seniors can use long-term. For example, in Madison, WI where the company was founded we have clients that've enjoyed chef-prepared meals every week for 6+ years.

We offer three different service packages to meet a variety of needs: Standard, Custom, and Non-Standard. Click HERE to request more information on pricing in your area.

The Standard Package: your chef prepares 10-12 individually packaged servings of meals during a 2-hour home visit, depending on the items ordered. Select from our weekly menu rotation, with the ability to modify the dishes to meet your dietary needs and food preferences. Contact your local franchise owner for specific pricing information in your area.

The Custom Package: the chef prepares 10-12 individually packaged servings of meals. Custom Package clients are able to have more control over their menu, and the chef can even utilize dietary information from your doctor or dietitian.

Non-Standard Package: this covers basically everything else. If you need the chef to cook for 3+ people, prepare food for a dinner party, or want help with holiday meal prep that’s what the Non-Standard Package is intended for. The price for Non-Standard services depends on the nature of the job, and local franchises charge an hourly rate for the chef's time.

We also take inspiration from the DASH Diet (Dietary Approach To Stopping Hypertension), when designing our weekly menu rotations.
