CIC Alum Kelly Franz Tapped To Be Executive Chef of Magnolias Restaurant

Congratulations to CIC alum Kelly Franz, just named Magnolias restaurant executive chef!

"Franz joined Magnolias in November 2003, moving up the ranks in the kitchen for over a decade and taking on more responsibility as the beloved Southern establishment continues to evolve.  Most recently Chef de Cuisine, Franz now oversees kitchen stations, ordering, hiring, menu and recipe development and more.

"Growing up traveling and experiencing different cultures, food became a passion at an early age. Franz was always more interested in what was happening in the back of the house and she began helping with food preparation as part of her first restaurant job. While attending the Culinary Institute of Charleston, Trident Technical College, Franz spent time growing in beloved kitchens in Charleston including Locklears, Angelfish Restaurant and of course, Magnolias. In 2015, Franz was invited to join the Charleston Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier and is honored to be a part of this distinguished group of women in the hospitality industry. Also in 2015, Franz was runner-up in season 6 of the Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen."
