“I am passionate about nurturing and expanding great businesses like Snapchef,” says Miska. “They are really multifaceted; they employ and train hundreds of people as well as fill a need in their communities.”

To further their education and careers, Snapchef staff have the opportunity to complete the company’s unique, 14-module “Fast Track” culinary training and education curriculum over the course of two to three years.
Snapchef is growing. The demand for skilled foodservice staff is at an all-time high across the nation. The company is currently scouting cities that can most benefit from its proven business plan.
