Inspiring Conversations with Erica Palfrey of Chef Kali LLC

Today we’d like to introduce you to Erica Palfrey.

Hi Erica, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Chef Kali started her private chef business in one of the most pivotal moments of my life. I was in a season where it just seemed as if every door was closing on me. This motivated me to start my own business and be my boss.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been fairly smooth?
My journey has been everything but smooth, lol. It is smoothing out now, glory to God, but I struggled with finances in my personal life and business for several years. I’ve experienced a lack of clientele. I also experienced being overbooked and underpaid. People have attempted to cheat me out of money. People have legit added me on social media, took my ideas, then unfollowed me and started making my exact stuff. I also remember just last year when I went through a very personal traumatic experience that pushed me into severe depression. It was just so hard because the next day after I had that experience, I woke up to several inquiries, and it was just like a shock. But those are the moments that really allow me to push through. Those are the moments where I have put out some of my best work honestly.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Chef Kali LLC?
I think the thing I’m most proud of is my overall growth. It’s so amazing to see how and where I started up until this point. What I want people to know about my brand is they can expect an experience while getting delicious upscale food.

What are your plans for the future?
I’m looking forward to expanding by being the private chef for athletic teams/teammates, a top-paid traveling private chef, and featuring on various cooking shows.
