Details on This Episode

Brandon Chrostowski is the Founder, President & CEO of EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute based in Cleveland Ohio. If you were visiting Cleveland and happened upon his restaurant, you might think it’s just a traditional French restaurant, but in fact, it’s a 501c3 nonprofit focused on providing education, training, and support for those who are formerly incarcerated. After training as a chef himself, Brandon started by teaching in Grafton Correctional Institution in 2011 and now has the French restaurant, a butcher shop, bakery and edwins too; a culinary incubator, community kitchen, event and makers’ space. Having had over 600 people go through their program, their recidivism rate is impressive. Brandon’s is such an incredible story!
