In an effort to uplift local Black-owned business, The Hyatt Regency Miami will partner with Miami’s own Derrick “Chef Teach” Turton and World Famous House of Mac. Chef Teach’s most beloved dishes, like the Five Cheese Truffle Mac & Cheese, will be featured on the Hyatt Regency’s Riverview Bar & Grill and room service menus.
“We are proud of this partnership as we commit to collaborating with organizations to significantly increase the inclusion of diverse suppliers in our supply chain opportunities and evaluate strategic investments in diverse businesses in our community,” said Colleen Diaz Director of Sales.
Hyatt has made strides toward building strong Diversity Business Resource Groups and launching a Global Inclusion & Diversity Council. The core of this success begins at home by offering a platform for local minority- and Black-owned businesses.
Chef Teach is a true example that you should always follow your dreams. From managing Pitbull to serving as Vice President of Polo Grounds Music, his glowing music industry career is worthy of praise. However, it’s his culinary talent that has always caught the eye of those around him. At one of his famous backyard cookouts, friends encouraged Chef Teach to “take the cooking thing more seriously” after enjoying one of his decadent takes on the classic mac and cheese.
After preparing a series of signature dishes for rapper Bun B and friends, the group’s praise and his food’s cult following lead to the founding of the World Famous House of Mac food truck, featuring Chef Teach’s late father’s face as his brand logo.
Today, World Famous House of Mac draws crowds to its three Miami locations (fear not, Chef Teach’s dishes are available for national delivery). Celebrity fans include Pitbull, Dwayne Wade, Gabrielle Union, Nate Robinson, Daymond John, A$AP Ferg, Trick Daddy, Serena Williams, Charles Oakley, Uncle Luke, and more.
