Chef Jenn and Small Business: A recipe for success

Memphis just eats us up.

Chef Jenn headlined a talk at the Memphis Small Business Seminar last Thursday, and addressed the business side of her, well, business—there’s a lot more to starting a successful food operation than knowing how to cook a delicious meal.

Her insights included her perspective on her company as a businesswoman, being an entrepreneur and marketing and selling. Check out the news […]

She won’t be hard to miss in her white chef’s jacket, and a blue scarf around her neck, smiling out at you from inside the freezer case on a package of her buffalo-style shrimp dip or on a shelf housing a box of her new cheese grits or “hushpuppies with a bark.”

Chef Jenn Meals Reach Wal-Mart

Chef Jenn’s products took a big step forward last week, agreeing to terms which will put her meals in 800 Wal-Mart stores.

The initial query to Wal-Mart carried no expectations on her end, so it was a great surprise to be launching her product in over 300 stores just months after the first 30-minute meeting.

The City Wire, an Arkansas-based news outlet, interviewed Jenn for a story on the development, and she was candid about both the impact of the contract and her decision to outsource the food production while maintaining control over the actual foods purchased for her meals.

This year, Jennifer McCullough has cooked up nothing but victory. In April, she won Food Network’s reality cooking competition, Cutthroat Kitchen. And in July, she took a chance by attending Walmart’s Open Call for products that support American jobs, where she got more great news: Several of her gourmet frozen food products will soon be sold in our stores.

Super Women in Business: Jennifer McCullough

Jennifer McCullough, owner of Chef Jenn
Who was/is your career mentor? My father. He came home with the same disposition every night in spite of the pressure, stress, the highs and the lows that go along with owning your own company. His steady temperament and constant reliability make him an exceptional leader as well as father.

Chef Jenn Wins “Cut Throat Kitchen”

As initially noted by Memphis Business Journal, Chef Jenn won Food Network’s recent “Cut Throat Kitchen” episode titled “The Rice Stuff.”

Filming took place in early January, but the episode aired three times locally during late spring. After being sought out by the show, she decided to take the risk and compete, despite other contestants being full-time restaurant chefs and the sometimes-tricky editing done in post-production.

As it turns out, the risk was worth the reward.

Chef Jenn on Cutthroat Kitchen April 27, 9pm central

Chef Jenn is coming up on Season 3, Episode 7 of Cutthroat Kitchen on Sunday April 27. This episode, named ‘The Rice Stuff’ airs at 9pm (central). This episode will see the tedious separation of grains of rice to make risotto; the long wait for their number to be called at the Cutthroat Kitchen Deli and one chef must chisel their ingredients from a block of ice…

Just how far is Chef Jenn willing to go to win a cooking competition? Cutthroat Kitchen hands four chefs each $25,000 and the opportunity to spend that money on helping themselves or sabotaging their competitors. […]
