Collaborating closely with DVR, Goodwill NCW and area high school transition teams, Zuppas Chef Peter Kuenzi has planted the seeds for future careers by providing job shadow and work experience opportunities to high school students with disabilities. Many of these work experiences have resulted in permanent employment at Zuppas for these students. Zuppas received an Exemplary Employer Award from the Office of Governor Scott Walker for this commitment to including people with disabilities in their workforce.
