Eat With Us Group Hires New Corporate Chef
July 02, 2012 -
Columbus, MS–The Eat With Us Group and Sweet Peppers Franchise Systems welcome Matt Bronski to the team. Originally from Detroit, MI, Bronski attributes his inspiration for cooking to his mother who insisted the family eat together every night and enjoy home cooked meals. With that habit instilled from home and curiosity from a high school culinary class, Bronski developed his chef skills. He worked and trained under a European chef through the American Culinary Federation apprenticeship program and graduated with a Certified Cook Certificate and Associates Degree in 1992 from the Oakland Community College in Farmington, MI.
In order to balance out his creative side, Bronski pursed a bachelor’s degree in business at the Detroit College of Business in Warren, MI. During this time he continued to cook by competing in the Culinary Olympics in Europe. There he competed against 35 different countries and won gold in 1992 and silver in 1996 and 2000. Other accomplishments include achieving his Certified Executive Chef Certification.
“We feel Matt’s diversity is what makes him a good fit for the Corporate Chef position and the goals we want to accomplish within our three restaurant concepts,” stated John Bean, President of the Eat With Us Group and Sweet Peppers Franchise Systems.
Bronski has held various chef positions. Industries of experience include private clubs, hotel/conference centers, and casual and upscale restaurants as well as large volume feeding houses and off site catering. A move to Raleigh, NC, in 2003 resulted in the opening of Dry Aged Steakhouse followed by working back in the kitchen as Executive Chef with Chops Steakhouse. Further expanding his experience and diversity, Bronski delved into the sales industry working for Sysco Food Services, Live Nation and Reinhart Food Service.
“I had the chance to experience hundreds if not thousands of items we inventory that I’ve never thought about asking about and now understand that there are more cost effective options out there to place on almost any restaurant menu,” states Bronski.
Experience in the kitchen along with working with national manufacturing representatives, regional brokerage firms and other food service companies allows Bronski to fulfill the tasks at hand with the Eat With Us Group and Sweet Peppers Franchise Systems in order to enhance the level of doing business.
Bronski officially started July 1, 2012.
