FareStart Hires Wayne Johnson as Interim Executive Chef

FareStart is pleased to announce the hiring of Wayne Johnson as its Interim Executive Chef while they search for a permanent executive chef to lead their talented retail kitchen team, which includes catering, restaurant and multiple cafe operations.

Johnson comes with great experience having served as Executive Chef at Ray's Boathouse, Cafe & Catering and the Executive Chef at Andaluca Restaurant and Oliver's Lounge at the Mayflower Hotel. Prior to that, he held top positions at the Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco and Marriott Hotels and Resorts in California and Colorado.

"With his great experience, Wayne was a natural choice to fill in because of his community-minded philosophy and culinary business experience," said FareStart CEO Megan Karch. "Not only does our Executive Chef oversee all details in the kitchen, they play a critical role in training and fully preparing our students for job-readiness."
