Meet Chef Andres

Chef Andres has been working in the food-service and hospitality industries for nearly 20 years. He discovered his hidden talent and passion for the culinary arts during an apprenticeship as a young man in Bogota, Colombia, which inspired him to pursue formal training.  

Prior to relocating to Colorado, Chef Andres oversaw the operations of various high-volume, corporate, and privately-owned restaurants on the East coast. Throughout his career, he was awarded many accolades and honors, including the prestigious Four-Diamond, AAA and the Best Overall Restaurant in South Florida by Gold Coast magazine while working at the Grill Room in the Riverside Hotel on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, FL. 


Throughout his career, Chef Andres has worked as Executive Chef at several well-known restaurants as well as opened free-standing restaurants, consulted for private and public companies, and offered private catering services.  At this point in his career, Chef Andres is looking to focus on sharing his love of cooking and the knowledge he has acquired over his many years as a professional in a more personal manner. 

Combined with a new appreciation for the value and benefits of conscious eating – knowing not only WHAT you are eating, but HOW it will affect you – his passion for tasty food, good times, and sharing his love for cooking with others are the main reasons he is excited to be a part of the Fit Foods Team.
