How much do chefs make a year?
Hey everyone, I'm a sophomore in high school and I'm planning on going to culinary school to become a chef. Now I have a lot to ask. What's the highest ranking of a chef and how much do they get paid? Also, how long should I go to culinary school to become an executive chef? Do executive chefs make a lot of money? I'm only concerned about the money because in the long run i want to open up my own restaurant. Please help!(:

not sure about the salary, but keep in mind this is a very stressful and time consuming job. my father was an executive chef and I NEVER saw him, he worked 7 days a week and full 12 hour shifts. sometimes longer. no days off for a chef, you work weekends and holidays

Contrary to what people watching the Food Network think, chefs do not make all that much money. The only way to rake in the cash is to own your own restaurant and have a large customer base. Most new restaurants go out of business within 6 months. Banks are hesitant to make loans for this endeavor.
