So, why '50 Eggs'?
In the late 1960’s film classic Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman’s devil-may-care attitude lands him in a Florida jail for cutting off the heads of parking meters. Outnumbered, Newman is dared by his cellmates to eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour. Fueled by his stubborn instincts and unwillingness to conform, Newman trumps his naysayers and defies all odds – proving that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to.
It’s this ethos on which the company was founded. 50 Eggs is a place where ideas become plans, plans become actions and actions become success and growth. It’s a place where we always find a way to overcome the impossible – a place where we can eat 50 Eggs.
50 Eggs is comprised of highly-driven, passionate professionals who share a wide range of strengths and expertise. The Executive Team is proudly composed of a versatile task force of experts focused on company culture, guest service excellence, food and beverage management, training and development programs, and strong sales practices; a set of ingredients that set them apart from the rest.
Chef Jess grew up in San Diego, California and now resides in Las Vegas where she’s the corporate pastry chef for 50 Eggs Inc, and she oversees all brands; Yardbird, CHICA and Spritz brands!
After attending culinary school, the talented pastry chef realized what it meant to become a true chef while working Sushi alongside Chef Koji. Chef Jess is driven and strives to put out the best dishes possible. She believes that one must never stop learning and embraces the fact that knowledge is limitless.
Chef Jess is the winner of Food Network’s Desert game and season 3 Halloween Baking Championship Finalist! She’s also a cheese monger and a lover of passion fruit. 
Jessica's advice for aspiring chefs is to never stop learning. There are so many details that go into making a food-related business work and the more that you know, the more valuable you are. Research alternate cooking techniques, perfect your computer skills, learn how your equipment works and how to make minor repairs, or even branch out and explore different cultures and where dishes have originated. There are no limits to the amount of knowledge that you can obtain and use for your own benefit. One culinary tip every chef should know and perfect according to Jessica are knife skills. No matter what type of food you prepare, I think that knowing how to handle, cut, and sharpen your knives is something that is taken for granted too often and shows your professionalism and respect for your craft. Good food to Jessica means balance. not only just flavor, but also texture and temperature. Combine all of that and give me something I’ve never had before, then I’ll be talking about your food for years!
