our vision

We love food. And we're ready to serve ridiculously good food at your University.

We’ve all heard it before. Crappy college food. Burned out Chefs. With no end to either problem in sight, something needed to change. College Chefs Owner, Chef Kevin Gadus, was on a mission to revolutionize the Chef industry. A company built for Chefs, by Chefs. We get it.

In the beginning

Chef Kevin Gadus was College Chefs, hustling around the University of Illinois in 2008, providing a one-man food service to a handful of Greek houses on campus. Eventually, Kevin crafted a system that provided him the opportunity to harness his passion and creativity for cooking, while spending his nights, weekends, and holidays with his two daughters.
A dream come true. Kevin passed away in 2021, but our team is hard at work to continue to champion his passion for bad ass food in houses across the country.

we will expand on where we've been by providing even healthier, ethically-sourced food choices for our Chapters, as well as fabulous new benefits for our employees.
