Get SIRET/SIREN number to work legally
If you want to work independently as a cook, waiter or dishwasher in the restaurant sector, you need to obtain a SIRET/SIREN number to start your professional activities. In this case, service providers do not need a K-bis. The certificate, Avis de situation SIRENE, issued by INSEE, is all you need to carry out your activities. However, to work as a caterer, you will need a K-bis.
Additionally, we help service providers to register on various websites and applications related to this sector, such as Extracadabra, Job minute, Gofer, Brigad, etc., through which you can get job assignments. These platforms guarantee financial transactions and mutual satisfaction.
