With Love Restaurateur in Residence (RiR) Inquiry


Every 6 months With Love will incubate a new Restaurateur in Residence (RiR) offering up their National or Regional Cuisine. This is your chance to get a 360-view of the restaurant business while crafting and promoting your own brand.


Here’s a few things to know before you apply:


  • The RiR will automatically enroll in our Front of House, Food Service Management (FSM) course.  Tuition and materials are covered at no cost to the student.
  • Expect to commit 20+ hours a week, both day and nighttime shifts, be that in the classroom, managing the dining room, working ‘behind the scenes’ on menu planning, sourcing, etc.
  • You will work with our Workforce Educators to develop a menu.  Bring recipes, ideas and cooking techniques; while we’ll render a good many ‘traditional’ dishes, at times we’ll need to significantly modify dishes to meet the educational needs of our Line Cook Students.
  • Selected RiR will be offered a monthly stipend.  This is intended to essentially ‘buy back’ a good portion of your time each week so you can focus on building your business plan.
  •  Selected RiR will be assigned an advisor from the SBDC (Small Business Development Center) and/or CenterState CEO (Center for Economic Opportunity).
  • Finally, the selected RiR should come here to share, to teach, but also to learn.  This works best when viewed as a collaboration, sharing culture, best practices and common industry protocols.
