We’re teaching skills and changing lives

The Community Culinary School of Charlotte is here. We have a group of serious, focused students who are learning quickly the culinary and life skills that will prepare them to enter or re-enter the workforce by their Graduation Day.

161003miracle300Encore Catering, the full-service catering company that’s been part of the School since 2001, is also here on Monroe Road. Encore helps support the School’s training mission in two ways: by creating revenue for the School from serving your catering needs, and by giving School students and alumni opportunities to make wages for their service.

In our new location at Greylyn Business Park near Sardis Road North, we are blessed to have The Café, the perfect place for you to enjoy a delightful breakfast or lunch, Monday through Friday.

This chef-inspired, community-driven operation gives our students and alumni direct experience in serving the public. And you get to buy from the wonderful baked goods coming out of the School’s kitchen.

Finally, take a look at our Team-building Sessions, a new take on corporate team-building and private culinary classes.

So come see us. We look forward to your next visit.

– Chef Ron Ahlert, Executive Director

Every investment you make here – from having a Café lunch to catering for your next party to buying baked goods to team-building – helps support a proven workforce development program.
