The COLORS Hospitality Opportunities for Workers (CHOW) Institute provides an in-depth and advanced professional training in both front- and back-of-the-house restaurant skills at no cost to either employers or employees.

CHOW participants enjoy a multi-tiered curriculum designed to prepare them for living-wage jobs, like fine dining waitstaff, bartenders and managers.

As the restaurant industry is facing a serious labor shortage, restaurants need the training that CHOW offers. CHOW fills this labor gap while ensuring the majority of restaurant job opportunities guarantee fair wages and better workplace practices.
