FOUNDERS
JOHN OLDWEILER
Founder & President

John’s experience in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry began in Boston in 1987 where he accumulated great experiences in several restaurants working both in many back of the house (BOH) positions as well as taking on front of the house responsibilities. Over the years, John has accumulated a broad exposure to BOH restaurant management, with an extensive background in purchasing, systems development, program design, contract negotiation, and manufacturer partnership programs. John has had experience both opening and working in large restaurants with footprints of over ten thousand feet to unique multi-concept food courts. Extensive experience in multi-regional distribution environments, gaming and hotel restaurant locations. John started purchasing for restaurants owned independently by friends long before ChefMod was born and has always been an advocate for the independent restaurateur who often don’t have the resources to support business class solutions. Many of those friends continue as members of ChefMod today. When he’s not at work, or at home with the family, you’ll see him on the slopes or running a country road.
