Meet the Maestro: Zachary Holm

In the bustling world of breakfast, there’s a seasoned professional, a culinary maestro, and a passionate soul orchestrating the symphony at Rise! Breakfast. Allow us to introduce Zachary Holm, a chef and restaurant owner with over a decade of experience in the industry.

Zachary’s journey began at Colorado State University, where he initially dipped his toes into academia from 2007 to 2010. However, his heart led him to the sizzling pans and aromatic coffee shops, prompting a hiatus from studies to immerse himself in the world of hospitality.

During these formative years, Zachary embraced diverse roles – from assistant manager at a cozy coffee shop to tending bar at a fine dining establishment. He even donned the hat of a kitchen manager for a lively pub and bar. These experiences sculpted him into a well-rounded professional, offering insights into both front- and back-of-house operations.

After a three-year hiatus, Zachary returned to Colorado State University, balancing full-time classes with roles as a supervisor at CooperSmiths Pub and a sous chef at a high-end Mexican restaurant. Armed with theoretical knowledge and practical experience, he emerged with a degree and a deep understanding of the intricacies of the hospitality industry.

Zachary’s journey continued in the vibrant city of Denver, where he assumed the role of assistant general manager at a tequila and taco bar. Overseeing daily operations, he navigated challenges with finesse, reinforcing his reputation as a leader with a knack for creating unforgettable experiences.

Now, with a wealth of experience and a heart full of passion, Zachary embarks on a new adventure with Rise! Breakfast. His vision is to create a place where the community gathers over delightful food and warm camaraderie.
