“Uncorporate” DINNERs

Targeted Team Building Experiences

We’ve reinvented the typical business dinner in unexpected ways, using a multi-chef, multi-sensory, pop-up format with story-filled dishes that can reinforce your strategies and values through meaningful interactions and facilitated conversations. 

When you need to gather your teams and make it count, we help catalyze essential connections with our UnCorporate Dinner experiences.


how it works

We believe that designing for human connection is one of the most important leadership skills of the digital age.


Engagement is essential within hybrid and remote working environments.  How we gather matters, because it has a direct correlation to the contributions that teams make with their work outputs.


Employees are simply more productive when they are bonded with their peers and aligned with their organization’s mission.


With our UnCorporate Dinner experiences, we blur the lines of a leadership development workshop and team building, as we facilitate a delicious meal that’s filled with storytelling and food interactions that inspire conversations that matter.

Are you an established food brand focused on workplace inclusion throughout your diverse employee base?


Perhaps you are scaling a startup where employee culture needs to be maintained amidst rapid growth? Brand loyalty is driven by company culture.


For both food startups and established CPG’s, the need for fluidity between between your ever-evolving personnel, your product portfolio and the company’s mission is essential

how it works

We use food to strengthen the connection your employees have with one another and the brands they are building.


There is no better way to establish these organic connections than through a team build using popular formats that until now, were only chefs on TV.


Our “pop up” cooking adventures are customizable for onsite and off-site venues. NO KITCHEN REQUIRED from 50 – 250 participants.
