Restaurant Partners

Future Chefs engages with a large number of restaurant and industry partners that provide employment opportunities, program development, and financial support.

Through these relationships, students participate in chef demos, field trips, and work alongside chefs at local events. Partnerships with restaurants also provide a training ground for Future Chefs Apprentices.



“Future Chefs cares about people and they want people to succeed in life and it doesn’t mean they have to succeed in restaurants; it’s training people on how to be humans. How to work in restaurants, or work in another business: it’s teaching them skills that they could use at any job. Show up on time, work as a team, be respectful.”

—Chef Kevin O’Donnell, SRV
