Reasons to Invest

Co-Founder, Jim Cafarelli, has over forty years of experience developing entertainment and dining concepts for clients such as The Walt Disney Company and Universal Studios.
The Studio Kitchen team has produced over 3,000 live shows and received 25 Emmy nominations for culinary media projects.
The Studio Kitchen has received media features and press attention from NBC Boston, the Wall Street Journal and the Boston Globe, among others.

The culinary entertainment destination

Chief Creative Officer, Jim Cafarelli, has been developing entertainment and dining concepts for over forty years, and his impressive client list includes House of Blues, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios, Chelsea Football Club, David Copperfield, Motown, Greg Norman, Quincy Jones, Comcast, and Mohegan Sun.

After years of partnerships, he and his wife opened their own restaurants, one of which was called Rustic Kitchen. There, they began experimenting with a chef’s table experience on Friday evenings during dinner service. This experiment became the inspiration and basis for the creation of The Studio Kitchen.

*By investing in The Studio Kitchen, you are investing in The Studio Kitchen Company, a company that owns not only the intellectual property that is The Studio Kitchen, but also owns our new planned Las Vegas location as well as any future Studio Kitchen endeavors. Previous ventures by Jim Cafarelli are not included in this investment.

The Studio Kitchen Company is now the new entity offering premium interactive dining experiences and serving as a platform for modern media creation. 


Guests step through their screens into a master chef's dream kitchen and television studio for entertaining dining experiences. Our brand encompassed a multimedia production company and a unique dining theatre for guests to experience our award-winning live shows, hosted by celebrity chefs, master chefs, and culinary influencers.

The Problem


We believe demand for memorable dining experiences grows as the restaurant industry declines

There is a growing desire for quality interactive dining experiences, as the restaurant industry and dining out declines due to the COVID 19 pandemic. It is a tired but true saying: “Millennials are willing to pay for experiences.”


People want to savor their favorite restaurant dishes once more and we believe they will flock to Vegas when we feature their favorite cooks for chef residencies. At The Studio Kitchen, we take dining out to a whole new level, transforming the broken restaurant model into a premium immersive experience.


Delivery apps are killing the restaurant industry, and both chefs and food lovers need more options! 

The Solution


Live entertainment meets haute cuisine

The Studio Kitchen mixes a live entertainment experience with an haute cuisine restaurant meal and service. We welcome guest chefs from all around the world, each of whom attracts their own league of loyal followers. Customers become a part of the show as they step into a dream kitchen complete with a master chef who crafts an incredible meal before their eyes while sharing wine, answering questions, and telling industry tales! 

We’ll be inviting James Beard award-winners such as Joanne Chang, Iron Chef David Burke, Food Network’s Matthew Merril, Chef Q Jeffries, Tik Tok’s Adam Ragusea, Union Oyster House Executive Chef Rico DiFronzo, Master Chef Jr Chef Spiotta, the Great British Baking Show’s Briony May Williams, just to name a few!

The Market


Las Vegas is a major epicenter of entertainment, with over 40 million visitors per year

Just as the Roaring 20s followed the Pandemic of 1918, so too will the world soon break free and let loose, with Las Vegas poised to be a top destination for fun and entertainment. More than 42 million people visited Las Vegas in 2019.

Vegas already attracts celebrity chefs and their followers; there’s just no other market like it when it comes to live entertainment and unique dining experiences. The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace has been the highest-grossing shopping center per square foot in the country and we are working with Simon Property Group, the largest shopping mall owner/operator in the nation to open a new location here.

Our Traction


Thousands of live shows, numerous Emmy nominations, and major press features

We've produced over 3,000 live shows for over 100,000 people, received 25 Emmy nominations, winning 4 times, twice for Set Design. We regularly sold out shows 2-3 months in advance, have a large regional following, and have received media features and press attention from NBC Boston, the Wall Street Journal, and the Boston Globe, among others.

*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.


The Cafarelli family, who has bootstrapped this venue concept inside of our other restaurants for 15 years, currently retains 100% ownership. We're now The Studio Kitchen Company and together we are expecting to open on the world's stage of the Las Vegas Strip in Spring of 2022. We started with just 12 seats in the corner of a restaurant in Boston and soon we’ll have over 100 on the Las Vegas Strip.

What We Do


A hub of fun and immersive fine dining experiences generating endless media content

Guests purchase tickets online or at our box office. They have assigned seats in a theater environment that is also a fully functioning kitchen and broadcast studio. They are served multiple food courses and paired wines. Before them, a real chef prepares their meal in a real working kitchen. The whole place has state of the art cameras, microphones, lighting and more so we never miss a moment. This new company offers a stand-alone studio/bar venue free from a restaurant’s expenses, uncertainty, and risks.

Guests are encouraged to ask questions of the chef during the show and have meet & greet opportunities. They can also purchase a digital recording of their show to relive the magic and help them cook at home. The venue itself is a media production hub and anything that happens in and around the studio becomes content for streaming and social media. The public will have the opportunity to attend or participate in everything we do - from free television show tapings - to exclusive celebrity chef holiday dinners.

The Business Model


Direct to consumer model, through ticket sales

Patrons purchase tickets for the dining experience, and dine and drink with their favorite chefs. In addition to shows, we offer VIP experiences, merchandise, corporate sales, and serve as a media production platform. 

We have planned that the studio will hold over 100 people and tickets will range in price from $99-$250 (estimated) based on the specific show and host. There is also a VIP level that will be sold similar to a private sports box, opera box, or loge level.

Other dining venues on our proposed property, such as Joe’s Seafood and Carmine’s, have estimated annual sales ranging from $15 million to $20 million. We will benefit from bulk preparation and reduced variability coupled with premium ticket pricing to achieve an EBITDA of 20% or more for signature shows and even higher with celebrity chef programming exclusives. In addition to ticket sales, patrons may purchase drinks at our bar, upgrades to their experiences, merchandise, media, and culinary accouterment.

How We Are Different


A unique and versatile fusion of dining entertainment and multimedia production

We straddle both the dining and entertainment industries, appealing to a wide range of customers. Our content and offerings are always fresh and untethered to any single chef or cuisine. All are welcome to come to dine, learn, and drink with their favorite creators in our special space that compliments the Las Vegas dining and entertainment scene as a new world-class experience.

Additionally, we also plan to donate 1% of our sales to charities such as Three Square Food Bank, the local Las Vegas member of Feeding America, which can turn every $1 into 3 meals. We will also host benefit shows and events in The Studio Kitchen to further assist our not-for-profit partners, and may work with local vocational, trade, and specialty schools to provide educational opportunities to students studying the culinary and media production arts.

The Vision


We envision several venues around the world

Based on Jim Cafarelli's previous experience working with entertainment media groups in London and Tokyo, we believe that the Studio Kitchen has the potential to have several venues around the world at select marquee destinations and have the goal of one day being owned by or partnered with a large entertainment, media, or hospitality company.

OUR LEADERSHIP


We have decades of experience designing and operating world-class, award-winning venues

The Studio Kitchen is a family-run business, spearheaded by father-son team Jim and Michael Cafarelli. The team lives and breathes hospitality and has decades of experience in this space. We design, build, and operate world-class venues and have won many industry awards such as AAA Four Diamonds, Tripadvisor Certificates of Excellence, Opentable Diner’s Choice Awards, and four Emmy awards.

Our leadership is highly experienced and includes the developer of the House of Blues, who is returning to Las Vegas with a proven concept that has been growing for 15 years, selling out thousands of shows, and serving over 100,000 people.

Why Invest


 With over 50 years of experience behind us, we’re eager to get our most exciting venture off the ground!

We’re coming to a marquee destination on the world’s stage at a time when people crave premium interactive dining experiences with real chefs they love from television, social media, and cities around the globe. We have over fifty years of experience developing entertainment and dining concepts for clients like Greg Norman, David Copperfield, Chelsea Football Club, Motown, The Walt Disney Company, and Universal Studios, as well as a population that is eager to return to Vegas for experiences like ours. Now, investors have the opportunity to join the founders in the same common stock we hold as we take The Studio Kitchen to the next level!
