Kurt Chenier, Executive Chef of Target Field in Minneapolis, shares his career timeline and words of advice for up-and-coming professionals.
“I think that a lot of people have it or they don’t and you have to have the drive and the motivation to work really hard. There are very few people that have what it takes to do the job, day in and day out. Since I can remember, I’ve always been known to be a hard worker, which provided me with the foundation and drive to grow in the industry. If you don’t have the physical and mental strength, it’s nearly impossible to be successful in our industry. „
