Cafe Rio Opens New Culinary Training Facility

Press Release

August 28, 2013

Salt Lake City — Cafe Rio Mexican Grill has opened a new culinary training facility at its Salt Lake City headquarters: The Cafe Rio Advanced Food Training Institute, or CRAFT.

The CRAFT Institute is a multimillion-dollar investment aimed at building restaurant leaders, sharpening cooking skills, and fine-tuning the art and science that defines Cafe Rio.

At the CRAFT Institute, Cafe Rio restaurant managers, assistant managers and head cooks are required to master Cafe Rio standards through certification on customer service programs, food specifications, produce selection, cooking techniques, recipe knowledge and food safety.

"We are always excited to invest in our employees and we have created and designed this incredible culinary center to support the development of our people,” said Abe Hollands, Cafe Rio's Chief Operating Officer.

"Cafe Rio has been a leading company in Utah for years, bringing hundreds of jobs and giving back to local communities," said Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert. "We are very pleased their headquarters, with the new CRAFT training institute, will remain in the State of Utah."
