The International Corporate Chefs Association is the first chefs association designed exclusively for corporate chefs from the nation’s largest chains and multi-unit operations. Membership is limited to the highest ranking culinarian from the top 200 multi-unit foodservice operations in the nation. The members assemble at an annual ICCA Summit; two regional ICCA Culinary Immersions; and host numerous networking opportunities at some of the nation’s largest events. ICCA members are keynote speakers, panelists and moderators during these events showcasing the talent and expertise of America’s Corporate Chefs. Membership benefits include access to up-to-date information on trends, training techniques, current issues, government regulation and other topics that affect menu development and innovation in the chain environment. This is done through a variety of educational programs and hands-on training at the Summit plus ongoing web-based news and information.

ICCA also assisted in creating the new Global Culinary Innovators Association (GCIA) that was launched in May 2014 during the NRA Show. The GCIA members are the lead new menu developer from chains and multi-unit operators ranking 201 – 400 in annual sales in the USA. They also host similar educational events and have the same mission as the ICCA.
