Cocoa Chili Restaurant & Catering is an educational foodie experience serving up Afro-Caribbean-Soul fanfare with a sweet and spicy flair, including our authentic Jamaican Jerk Chicken and signature Cocoa Chili Spice Blend.
Cocoa Chili was born out of chef-owner and operator Niquenya Collins’ passion for unique, flavorful foods and desirable customer experiences. Niquenya began her culinary journey as a major foodie and gourmet home chef. A graduate of the Silver Fork Culinary Program and Sprouts Incubator Program at The Hatchery Chicago, Niquenya’s love of diverse cultures sparked much exploration to recreate her versions of many famous international cuisines.
Currently operating for PICKUP & DELIVERY ONLY from The Hatchery.
We are driven by a social mission to expose our community to unique, sustainably sourced, educational, foodie experiences that expand awareness and access to opportunities.
Our vision is to diminish the effects of exclusion by using delicious food as the catalyst to spark learning, encourage conversation, ignite creativity, and evoke innovation.
We know that people come together through the universal language of food. Food can be a provocative storyteller incorporating all the senses – touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste. We also know that storytelling is one of the most effective tools for adult learners since it easily resonates with every learning style, whether auditory, visual, or kinesthetic.
