Constructed in 1984

Translated as "the young chef," Le Jeune Chef is a restaurant that presents a fine-dining experience at the heart of the Pennsylvania College of Technology campus.

Open to the public, the restaurant offers a gourmet menu and one of the region's most extensive wine lists in this unique teaching-learning environment.

Education in Fine Dining
Penn College culinary and hospitality students are privileged to work in the restaurant with visiting chefs who are among the world's most renowned professionals.

Students who practice their skills in Le Jeune Chef also cater national events including the Kentucky Derby and participate in important industry competitions, including the International Culinary Olympics.

Community service also is practiced by Baking & Pastry Arts students who create holiday chocolate houses that are auctioned to support Habitat for Humanity - "a house for a home."

been offered on campus since the days of Williamsport Area Community College, a Penn College forerunner. Prior to the construction of Le Jeune Chef next to the Hager Lifelong Education Center, instructional kitchens were located in the Klump Academic Center and meals were served in adjacent classrooms.

Since 1984, Le Jeune Chef has undergone several changes in appearance, from the recoloring of the original blue roof of the restaurant entrance outside...
...to the change in wall and window coverings, art, dining ware, and staff attire inside.
