Five Zimbabwean students who graduated from SAHTC The Hospitality School in Harare have now started work in the United States of America after securing contracts with The Broadmoor Destination Resort in Colorado Springs. The students, who studied for the Chefs on Statge Culinary Arts Management diploma left the country last month. Development tourism authorities described the contracts as a major breakthrough for the local tourism and hospitality industry.
The director of SAHTC Michael Ferrell commented "It's a wonderful opportunity for our chefs to go to the Broadmoor Destination Resort in Colorado Springs. It is an expansive resort with 800 plus rooms and two golf courses, so it is one of those great experiences one can have in life."
One of the chefs, Rachael Manomano said it was exciting and motivating to be offered a contract by such an internationally aclaimed resort: "I feel honored to have this opportunity. I will take this chance to tell the world about my country. I promise to carry back all the expertise I will acquire to develop the local hospitality and tourism industry for the better."
The Broadmoor plans to continue its relationship with SAHTC next month when it welcomes another eight Zimbabwean chefs. First opening its doors in 1918, The Broadmoor offers guests an incredible way to experience the unique beauty of the American West. It is also a member of Historic Hotels of America, an organization dedicated to promoting heritage and cultural travel to prestigious historic treasures.
