EDWINS Consulting


The mission of EDWINS is to change the face of re-entry nationally, and we can’t do this alone! That’s why EDWINS is pleased to offer direct, hands-on consulting to help launch other social enterprise restaurants around the nation. The EDWINS model has been extremely successful, as you saw in the Knife Skills documentary, and you read in reviews by the New York Times, Washington Post, Esquire, Eater, and of course, Yelp and OpenTable. We are ready to scale our impact nationwide, and we are ready to partner with you to launch your dream social enterprise! Email us today.

Through these paid engagements, you will not only get direct access to the experienced EDWINS staff (including our CEO, Brandon Chrostowski), but you will receive tailored, individualized guidance and support. You don’t have to feel alone in your social entrepreneurship; EDWINS is here to help!


EDWINS Consulting Success


Fine French Dining Helping with Addiction

Each restaurant is unique, and we are adapting our fine-dining, haute cuisine model to several different communities. You can read about the first such adaptation, Serenite Restaurant, which is firmly on the path to self-sustainability and significant impact, here. While the stories are compelling, just as important as the social impact is the quality of the food and service. Check out the Yelp and OpenTable reviews and you will see: EDWINS consulting works.

Italian Food Helping the Homeless

Our second project partnered us with the West Side Catholic Center in Cleveland, Ohio to reopen an old school Italian restaurant that would also help employ the population that they worked with. Those who are homeless or need help finding a safe place to live.
