Chef Robert Kabakoff Brings More Flavor to Chick N Max

October 21, 2021 // // WICHITA, Kan. - It’s been exactly one year since fast casual franchise Chick N Max welcomed Robert Kabakoff as its culinary director to help elevate the brand’s menu offerings. Today, the award-wining chef continues to share his vision and create gourmet flavor profiles that are differentiating Chick N Max in the industry.

“Acquiring top talent is paramount to any franchise’s growth, and we can’t be more pleased with Chef Robert’s contributions thus far,” said Chick N Max founder Max Sheets. “His depth of knowledge and experience, combined with his excitement to create fresh, new, innovative dishes, keeps us on the cutting edge.”

Chef Robert has had an impressive career of culinary invention. He is a graduate and board member of the acclaimed Culinary Institute of America and previously served as the Corporate Executive Chef and Director of Culinary Training for Hillstone Restaurant Group, a privately-held collection of upscale restaurants with 45+ locations in major cities across the country. In 2003, he opened RHK Consulting Group along with restaurants in Bend, Oregon; Chicago, Illinois; Spanish Fort, Alabama; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Washington, D.C.

He’s also the recipient of various awards, including Chef de Cuisine and Phoenix’s Chef of the Year, as well as the National Champion of Hot Food Cooking twice.

Since joining Chick N Max last year Chef Robert’s goal has been to craft delicious and innovative menu options that will push the boundaries in the thriving chicken segment. In the last 12 months, he has revamped the brand’s Smoked Chicken Sandwich line up and completely updated the Classic Smoked Chicken sandwich, moving the sandwich to almost first in the sales mix lineup. He has also created four new sandwiches, built a library of limited time offer sandwiches, added two new sides, and refreshed several menu items and recipes.  Finally, he has helped to layout the new unit kitchen for enhanced sales per hour capabilities along with improved speed of service, and improved upon several of Chick N Max’s negotiated supply contracts.

“This is a tremendous opportunity,” said Kabakoff. “Chick N Max is going in the right direction.”

Sheets added, “With all the new and anticipated menu introductions under Chef Robert’s culinary leadership, guests and franchise partners alike can look forward to an incredible experience with Chick N Max.”
