Haute Cuisine and its significance for Switzerland

Swiss gastronomy in general enjoys an excellent reputation. The industry has a lot of potential and is an important factor for tourism and economy, as shown by the following data*:
 

  • Switzerland has the highest Michelin star density, in relation to the number of inhabitants

  • 118 of the 28 806 hotels and restaurants are among the top establishments, with at least one Michelin star

  • This is the stimulus for quality, perfection and craftsmanship for the entire industry

  • 210 000 people work in the hospitality industry

  • 8 472 are learners in gastronomy

  • The Swiss population spent HF 22.4 billion Swiss francs in 2016 for food and drinks outside home

  • Gastronomy is en vogue. It’s more than just a trend

 

On the other hand, Maison des Chefs finds that: 

  • The topic of communication and marketing is central and highly complex, also for the individual top Chef.

  • The proportion of Swiss guests has been rather constant in the recent years. The share of guests from abroad has increased considerably, especially from the People's Republic of China.

  • New Media has made gastronomy more accessible to guests. From  recommendations on social media to online booking via smartphone. But for the individual top Chefs and their restaurants, it means that fast, coherent communication channels and modern communication concepts are needed to cope with these trends. This requires a well-founded strategy, know-how and resources. 

 

It is our aim to support and enable top Chefs and the branch of Haute Cuisine to meet these requirements successfully. Because, despite of its great importance and its acknowledged high performance, the league of independent top Chefs are without a representation and service for marketing and communication tasks. This is where Maison des Chefs comes in.
