Partner with ICE

ICE’s mission is to support the creative expression of each student and help them find their culinary voice.

As an extension of this goal, we've formed culinary partnerships with the nation’s leading brands in and out of the food vertical to offer brand experiences like no other.

An ICE partnership means unprecedented access to ICE’s culinary ecosystem and wealth of knowledge and content, offering new ways to activate brands and engage audiences.

In turn, these relationships help ICE offer its students and guests the best equipment, resources and opportunities for creativity and innovation in the culinary and hospitality industries. Below is a taste of some of these great culinary partnerships.
