Chip Kennedy


Owner, Chef Chip Kennedy, has always had a passion for cooking.  As a young boy growing up in Springfield, Illinois, he enjoyed experimenting with food and then sharing his dishes with his friends and family.  After graduating high school, he decided to make his passion a career. 

Chef Chip earned his culinary degree from Scottsdale Culinary Institute in Arizona.   He then put his skills to the test working for numerous fine dining restaurants throughout Oregon and Colorado. 

Since returning to his hometown in 2009, Chef Chip has made quite a mark in Springfield.  Catering is only one of his culinary passions.  In a year’s time, he has opened not one but two popular restaurants with his business partners, Tacology 101 and Finley’s Tap House.  His talents have led him to being nominated for various awards such as Small Business Person of the Year and Forty under 40.   

Chef Chip also greatly enjoys sharing his love for food with the community.  You will often catch him doing cooking demonstrations on various local news and radio stations or find him teaching a culinary course at Lincoln Land Community College.

“5flavors catered our wedding…and they knocked it out of the park.  Our guests will not shut up about how it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding!”

Kat Bremhorst Dodge

“I cannot recommend 5flavors enough!  We used them to cater our wedding and rehearsal dinner.  They not only provided two great meals for us, but Sadie went above and beyond helping out with everything!  If you or someone you know is looking for a reliable and delicious caterer, then this is your place!”
