Our Story

Originally a warehouse constructed in 1937 by Del Webb, the monOrchid building is an excellent example of adaptive-reuse in the city’s core. Through ten years of renovation and invention, the building has morphed into a place for collaboration, creativity, and celebration. Today, it houses several local restaurant and retail businesses including Kähvi Coffee + Cafe, Pedal Haus Brewery, Sake Haus, and Phoenix General boutique.

Zach Hunter grew up in Springfield, Illinois and is a graduate of Arizona Culinary Institute. After culinary school, Hunter spent time under the direction of Chef Andoni Aduriz at Two Michelin starred Mugaritz, which was named the fourth best restaurant in the world at the time, before moving to New York City to be a part of the opening team for Atera. Hunter spent two years in that kitchen, which also received two Michelin stars during his tenure.

Moving to Austin in 2012, he worked as a part of the research and development teams at Chef Tyson Cole’s acclaimed Uchi and Uchiko restaurants, before working at namesake restaurant of James Beard award winner Paul Qui. At Qui, he was instrumental in developing the opening multi-course menu for the restaurant’s tasting room. Hunter then opened The Brewer’s Table as Executive Chef, working closely with the head brewer to create a seamless connection between food and beer with crossover of ingredients from kitchen to brewery. During this time, Hunter was named Rising Star Chef of the Year, and the restaurant was also named Restaurant of the Year in Austin.

Prior to joining the Pedal Haus Brewery/monOrchid team, Hunter spent three years as Corporate Chef for a reputable hospitality company and oversaw all Creative Development and R&D for the entire company.
