ChefTalk was seeking assistance with a xenForo migration and a community management team for daily operations, allowing the owner and moderation team to focus on overall community health. They had a custom forum setup and website design that needed to be enhanced while remaining familiar. The team was also seeking guidance on how to improve revenue and shift community focus without disrupting user experience or damaging membership trust.
