Iris has had more than five years of experience working in a professional kitchen. Her cullinary career began in her family's bakery where she did light prep and answered customer inquiries. Later, she moved on to the Business Enterprise Program where she studied food service management in preparation for receiving her own location. She also trained with Starbucks and worked as a barista within the program.
