Air Culinaire Chicago Moves to a Larger Kitchen, Providing Better Service for Customers.
Air Culinaire Worldwide, operating in Chicago since 2005, expands into a state-of-the-art facility just minutes from Chicago O’Hare International Airport. This facility provides our experienced team with additional space to be creative, utilizing modern equipment, and is 7,800 sq. ft.
Debbi Brady, General Manager Chicago, and her team have led the transition to the new kitchen which features modern cooking appliances, such as state of the art coolers, cold production workspace, culinary training room, telematics system for delivery tracking and accuracy, and is centrally located to provide quick access to all Chicago airports.
These expanded facilities reflect Air Culinaire’s constant pursuit of more efficient service and increased product quality.
The team at Air Culinaire is confident about the quality of service that the team will produce from the new kitchen and provide for clients. Debbi has been with Air Culinaire for the past 17 years, and reflects on what this means for the company, stating “I am inspired by the continual commitment to improve our services and facilities, for the benefit of the customers and employees. The new facility provides a modern work environment for the staff, which they enjoy, resulting in higher service levels for our customers.
Graciela Munoz has been with Air Culinaire for 19 years and has lived in Chicago since she was 18. She was born and raised in Mexico and moved to Chicago in search of better opportunities. Munoz comes from a big family with 14 siblings, her being the 4th eldest of them all.
One of her favorite dishes to prepare is the charcuterie trays, fruit trays, and crudites. “The simple reason is that the final product is gorgeous and the process of making such beautiful art brings me enjoyment.” Munoz mentions “I love to layer in an order where everything is appealing to the eye with color and placement.”
Her inspiration for becoming a professional cook was her loved ones and family; especially her daughter. She wanted to escape poverty in Mexico to give her daughter a better life filled with more opportunities. She is inspired by other Air Culinaire chefs, Carlos Garcia and Felix Moreno, as they are a huge inspiration for her “I picked up many skills and learned critical lessons over the years, which I am truly grateful for.”
