CollegeChefs: The best food service for fraternities & sororities.
Who we are
College Chefs is a culinary company that serves food exclusively to sorority and fraternity students across the United States. Our Chefs are world-class talents whose backgrounds range from former restaurant owners to genuine, trained foodies who are just looking to break into the industry.
But enough about us, let’s talk about you – specifically, how we can get some delicious food on your plate. We employ the aforementioned Chefs to go into your sorority or fraternity’s house and prepare absolutely mouth-watering meals right in your kitchen! With us, you’ll never miss a meal (nor will you want to) as we supply all the food, labor, and management you’ll need to get started. In short, when you do business with College Chefs, your sorority or fraternity will house the best-fed Greeks and cleanest kitchens on campus. Many companies make similar claims, but only College Chefs has a national presence AND ridiculously high customer retention rates (at or very near 100% year-in and year-out).
For students, it’s just like having a home-cooked meal, except in this instance your parents are world-famous culinary masterminds…and you have a ton of siblings. OK, it’s not really that much like having a home-cooked meal…it’s way better.
The reason it’s way better is largely because of our company’s beliefs about the importance of what we do. We believe that by serving the minds of tomorrow the best, freshest food we possibly can, we are doing our part to ensure their success during one of the most volatile, but formative periods of their lives.
House Directors, House Corporations, and parents can rest assured knowing we don’t just employ any old diner cook to go into your student’s house. Our team is comprised of award-winning, trained, professionals who are dedicated to ensuring that your students are beyond satisfied with the food on their plate and that the kitchens are spotlessly clean. And that’s true from the Chefs your Greeks interact with on a daily basis to their regional supervisors to the management staff – all the way up to the company’s owner Kevin Gadus.
We serve our delicious food to an ever-expanding list of clients all over the United States. Chances are if you’re interested in doing business with us, we can be on your campus in no time flat (if we’re not already there). If you’d like to learn more, try building your own meal plan here on our site to see what sorts of food options are available to you. Or find us on Facebook and have a look at pictures of our actual food. If you like what you see, give us a call, send us an email, or contact us on one of our social networks. We can’t wait to hear from you!
If you’re a Chef looking for something a little different, why not give College Chefs a try? We think that you’ll love the freedom the job allows.
Are you looking for a Sous Chef, Kitchen Assistant, or Dishwasher position? We think you'll love us too!
College Chefs is not interested in institutional, cafeteria-style food. We serve fresh, high-quality food every day. If you are interested in making this sort of food and joining this sort of company, please read on.
Our Chefs undergo a rigorous hiring period, in part because we’re not interested in hiring a new Chef for the same house every year. We like to keep our people around. One way we help to ensure that we is to put a lot of importance on the hiring process. Here’s what we are looking for in all new Chefs:
If you fit these criteria, here are some of the incredible benefits you’ll receive as a Chef for us.
I have been working at College Chefs full-time (More than a year)
If you like cooking you will like this job but it doesn't come with all of the craziness of a restaurant. As a relatively young chef with about 10 years in restaurants this job is a breeze. Plus the students are cool and enjoyable to work for.
The students sometimes will leave the kitchen and dining space less than desirable and it's hard for me as a chef to ignore some of their cleaning problems.
Advice to Management
Nothing other than would like a better summer options.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at College Chefs (Champaign, IL) in April 2013.
I went through two interviews on the phone and one in person. The in-person one was conducted by three higher-ups, none of which were the owner.
It went smoothly and I was able to raise the position from something originally part-time to full-time.
