Once approved, you’ll work with the Resident team to put together a hosting schedule (there may be a minimum number of consecutive events). On event day, chefs and staff will require access to the kitchen and dining area. Chefs require access to large kitchen appliances. Food prep and cooking may be completed at the location, or in a compliant incubator kitchen. Kitchen tools, plateware, and decor are supplied by company. Guests purchase tickets to event through an online ticketing platform. Event location remains confidential to the public, and is revealed only to confirmed guests 36 hours in advance. Guests arrive between 7-7:30 pm, and the event concludes by 10:30pm.
We’re looking for homeowners and property owners (not renters). Once approved, hosts are connected with a company representative to coordinate logistics, including walkthrough, scheduling, and event setup.
Locations are treated with respect and care. Hosts are provided with third-party liability insurance to protect against the unlikely event that a lawsuit or claim is filed. A company representative is always present throughout event to handle all logistics, including guest management and cleanup.
