A new restaurant opening in Shaker Square on November 1 will offer a second chance for convicted felons.
EDWINS will not only be a chic new dining spot, but will also serve as a non-profit whose mission is to give convicted felons a chance for a successful re-entry to life outside prison.
It is a dream come true for the general manager, Brandon Chrostowski, the only white table cloth restaurant in the country to employ formerly incarcerated employees in the kitchen and the “front of the house” for service.
EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute is a 501 (c)3 non-profit whose mission is to give returning citizens a foundation in the hospitality industry while providing a support network necessary for successful re-entry to life outside prison.
