Our Friends Career Development

“When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower.”


Who We Are

Our Friends Career Development is a nonprofit job training center focused on changing the way people view the labor culture. We break this down into two concepts: providing a positive working environment and by providing coaching and support. We believe that when focused on these two fundamentals, we are able to reinvigorate a person’s self worth, which creates positive mental health, and will develop our workers into strong leaders.

We are a group of people who have full time experience in the restaurant industry. Our coaches are either currently working in the industry or have chosen to spend their time improving the industry for everyone else. We have all been through the ups and downs of what restaurants have to offer and want to give that knowledge in pursuit of good intentions.

 We provide a one-of-a-kind customized experience for our clients and our partners, our hands-on training and “whatever it takes” approach has helped create opportunities for our workers and the businesses we serve, while cutting all the bullshit in-between. We are proud of what we represent, and you’ll see that in our work. Contact us for more info.
