Chef Randy Wheeler started his journey with Maggiano's 12 years ago at our Nashville location. He grew up watching his family cook with ingredients and flavors that were inspired by his grandparents who were from the Czech Republic. His love for cooking grew when he went to college and he and his friends would take turns cooking for each other. His favorite thing about working for Maggiano's is continuously learning something new, how every shift is different, and our ability to go outside of the normal menu to help with special needs and banquet functions. Chef Wheeler’s memorable experience with Maggiano's was when he was in Nashville, at a summer holiday teammate outing where they would get together, rent canoes, and spend the day floating the river together.
