2017 KCBS Team of the Year Winners

Share this article:
January 18, 2018

The KCBS Board of Directors has realized the mistake it made by modifying the 2017 Team of the Year payouts without properly communicating the decision to our cook team members. In no way was our decision meant to marginalize the tremendous effort put forth by teams competing for Team of the Year points. 

In light of this, we have made the decision to pay out the additional money needed to match the levels that were paid out for 2016 Team of the Year. 

We apologize for the way this situation was poorly communicated and appreciate the continued support of our cook team members.
