Chez (shay) Genèse (zheh-ness) 

The Place of Genesis - The Place of New Beginnings 

At Chez Genèse we believe the desire to find meaning and fulfilling work is woven into basic human need and nature, and that every person has a skill set to contribute. It is our goal, as a team, to come alongside incredible individuals who (due to an intellectual or developmental disability) may oftentimes have the odds stacked against them in the workforce, to help develop and celebrate their own

interests and potential.

We believe food brings people together.

It is our vision to:


CREATE community, both inside and outside our walls


PROVIDE a basic education and understanding to the general public for those living with disabilities


train and EQUIP staff members to obtain and maintain a job in another work place or setting


remember HOSPITALITY is a gift and to give it freely


help FILL the void and DECREASE the percentage of unemployed adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities


AFFIRM the worth of all staff members and CULTIVATE a sense of pride in how and where they work


slow down and ENJOY the process of both meal preparation and consumption


create a culture that SERVES

Bon Appétit!!
