HEAD COOK: Chris Williams

COMPETITION: World Sandwich Championship

Strong family traditions of hard work and home cooking played pivotal roles in leading Chef Chris Williams into a culinary career. With both grandparents serving as role models, he developed a deep-seated longing to craft comfort foods reminiscent of those he enjoyed as a child. In 2014, after years of restaurant work and catering, that longing became reality when he opened Roy’s Grille inside of a gas station. Named in honor of his grandfather and inspired by his grandmother’s kitchen ethic, the restaurant is thriving thanks to Chef Williams’ winning formula that marries family tradition with a dedication to locally sourced ingredients and made-from-scratch foods. This aesthetic also has won him the honor of being named a 2022 South Carolina Chef Ambassador.
