COLORS – part restaurant, part training-facility, part worker-owned cooperative incubator.
COLORS offers eaters a worldly ambiance and a global cuisine made of quality, local and seasonal ingredients sourced, whenever possible, from producers who practice sustainable agriculture and fair trade and employees who get paid sustainable wages.
COLORS provides free restaurant-skills training to hundreds of workers, helping them move up the industry’s career ladder. Workers have the opportunity to intern at COLORS, cooking, serving meals and tending bar. Leaders from the local restaurant industry help ROC’s staff instruct the interns and guide their training. This experience affords many the opportunity to obtain placement in living wage jobs in the industry.
