Rosana Santos Calambichis is President of BigChef, Manufacturer of Appetizers, Hors oeuvres and More for the Hospitality and Retail Industries. (Started in 1999)

Rosana’s drive to become a successful entrepreneur began as a young girl. A Brazilian native raised in the metropolis of Sao Paulo, prior to relocating to South Florida, she traveled, residing in Cali, Colombia and Angola, Africa. Ultimately, her understanding of different cultures enhanced her knowledge of international business and fed her appreciation of world cuisine.

Inspired by her mother’s accomplishments as an award-winning chef and published cookbook author and her father’s successful attitude and leadership; Rosana decided to combine her business expertise and food interest with Calambichis, her partner, restaurant and people experience; leading to the acquisition of Big Chef. Since then, the company has diversified and expanded. The health conscious food factory known for hors d’oeuvres for foodservice, online for consumers nationwide and catering locally, has successfully added a Private Label Manufacturing division assisting startups launch new food products.

BigChefonline is the luxury of entertaining minus the stress of planning a menu, cooking and cleaning for guests with gourmet delivered and deliciously affordable. Just Fake it like you Made them.
