Wegmans 6 A number of impressive kitchens populate executive chef Kevin Grenzig’s resume. He’s cooked at such five-star resorts as Shalisan Lodge in Oregon, The Westin at Vail in Colorado and The Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. He even enjoyed a stint at New York City’s vaunted Waldorf Astoria Hotel. But what gets this 6½-year Wegmans’ veteran fired up about leading the kitchens at the newest store in Waugh Chapel, MD, is the ability to make great meals easy for busy families. “My parents both worked when I was a kid,” Grenzig says. “As young as age 12, if we were going to have dinner, it was up to me to start the meal.” What began as a chore quickly became a passion. Grenzig attended a culinary program in high school, and ultimately earned a degree at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. The new Waugh Chapel store opened Oct. 28. Grenzig heads a brigade of 140 full- and part-time employees that serves 10 departments within the store, including the chef’s case of daily specials; a made-to-order burrito bar; the fresh-made sushi counter; pizza, sub and coffee shops; and the Asian, vegetarian and homestyle bars. The 125,000 sq-ft store, Wegmans’ sixth in Maryland, offers 70,000 products, including a wide array of prepared foods and a Market Café.
