What are the fees for Culinary Capitals?
There are two fees to consider before applying to become a Culinary Capital:
Application fee. This is a one-time fee that is paid before we send the application template to the destination. We work with you during the application process to help you understand clearly our expectations for your destination to become a Culinary Capital. Then once your application is submitted, we process your application and prepare a detailed readiness index and report, which is included in your application fee. You can get an updated report every year by updating your previous year's application (there is no additional application fee for subsequent annual report updates). Remember, if your destination loses its accreditation, or if you choose not to continue your accreditation after the first year, then you will need to pay a new application fee if you wish to apply again as a Culinary Capital in the future.
Accreditation fee. This is an annual fee. The first year's fee is payable only after your destination is accepted as an accredited Culinary Capital. The second year's fee and subsequent annual fees are payable on the annual anniversary date of your accreditation.
Invoicing is available in the following currencies: USD, CAD, EUR, GBP, CHF, JPY, AUD, NZD, SGD.
Fees are subject to change, so please contact us by opening a support ticket to find out the current fee structure at the time of your application.
