BOSTON – October 4, 2016- Snapchef the largest culinary training and staffing company in New England, announced plans for a culinary training food truck. The “Fast Track Culinary Truck” that will serve Massachusetts and Rhode Island to bolster workforce development in the culinary sector.
The Fast Track Culinary Truck will visit communities across Massachusetts and Rhode Island and seek to work in partnership with clients and workforce development organizations. Through this new vehicle, Snapchef will be able to expand its hiring and training reach to multiple cities. This “First of its Kind” Fast Track Culinary Truck will provide ServSafe food handler training in a mobile kitchen training space.

The Fast Track Culinary Truck is the first of its kind and will be dedicated entirely to workforce development. We see this as the future of culinary training. ,” said Todd Snopkowski, President and CEO, Snapchef.

In response to industry demand, Snapchef developed the Fast Track Culinary program that serves to provide paid employment while building important skills for each Snapchef trainee/employee. The Fast Track Culinary program was designed in collaboration with globally renowned culinary training expert Chef Karl Guggenmos.
The Fast Track Culinary Truck is the latest in a series of announcements by Snapchef in 2016. Earlier in the year, Snapchef opened a central Massachusetts location/headquarters in Worcester. Most recently, Snapchef joined with Boston Public Schools in a public-private partnership to support culinary innovation at Madison Park Vocational School.
