This is a story in the making about how Chef Teach, the former music manager of Pitbull was inspired after the death of his father to change the direction of his life. This promising entrepreneur went from just one local food truck (with just four employees) to achieving great success with three standing brick and mortar locations in Miami. Chef Teach has his eyes set towards a nationwide expansion and his future is blazing bright with packed out locations and major social media buzz.
Teach attended culinary school in 1998, but began his professional career in the music industry – he managed Pitbull for more than 15 years while working alongside other hip-hop royalty such as A$AP Rocky and Yo Gotti. During his time in the music industry, Teach developed friendships with artists such as N.O.R.E. and Fat Joe in and out of the studio. Next thing you know, he often found himself cooking amazing dishes for his friends. After devouring Teach’s decadent variations of mac and cheese and discovering his unsurpassed culinary talent, friends like Bun B encouraged Teach to “take the cooking thing more seriously.” Bun B convinced Teach to prepare some of his signature dishes for his guests and observe their reactions, just to show Teach how good he really was.
Celebrities like Rick Ross, Fat Joe and A$AP Mob are huge fans of Chef Teach’s scrumptious dishes. The coolest recognition yet? According to Teach, the Venus and Serena Williams Invitational was among his biggest and most prestigious events thus far. Recent celebrity fans include Anthony Hamilton, Pitbull, Dwayne Wade, Gabrielle Union, Nate Robinson, Daymond John, ASAP Ferg, Fab 5 Freddy, Miami’s own Trick Daddy, Christian Combs, Charles Oakley, Uncle Luke, and more.
The flagship location of World Famous House of Mac is located at 2055 NW Second Ave. in Wynwood. It is an up-beat restaurant with a casual vibe that takes each guest on a culinary adventure with passport stamped tabletops and walls filled with musical journeys. And guests will now have an even bigger and better experience as the location is expanding next door.
