Our Development Kitchen & Executive Development Chef
Rob Owen, Executive Development Chef
We are delighted to complement our core products and added value offering with our Executive Development Chef, Rob Owen.
With his fantastic sense of humour, personable approach and wealth of experience in the trade, Rob works with our customers to understand the needs of their consumers, product offering and commercial requirements before supporting them with menu development, product testing, innovation and more.
Rob joined the company in January 2015 after working as a Chef for more than 16 years. He started his career at Raymond Blanc’s Brasserie chain and he has also worked at The George Hotel and Monty’s Brasserie in Cheltenham – where he earned two rosettes for his fabulous work.
In 2011 he enjoyed a time running a cookery school kitchen before being appointed chef manager of the Royal Oak at Gretton and establishing it as one of the county’s best destination gastro pubs. He also held the position of Group Executive Chef for Wesley House.
Our stylish development kitchen based in Cheltenham is an invaluable resource, specifically designed to support our customers and is available for hands on sessions, including:
Customer training and off-site meetings
Supplier product demonstrations
The Creed Foodservice development kitchen is available to customers with or without our Executive Development Chef, Rob Owen.
If you would like to speak to Rob about menu development, inspiration or book a day in the development kitchen, talk to us!
Our development kitchen, complete with our experienced chef is a real plus point for many of our customers – it gives them the chance to try out recipes or sound out new ideas away from their own busy kitchens. Rob’s extensive experience in hospitality from fine dining to gastro pubs, his knowledge of world food trends, and excellent presentation skills makes him an invaluable resource for our customers.
