The VIPP Report: Here’s To A “New” Year With A “New” Menu at Superchefs

Darnell Superchef Ferguson


(Louisville, KY) Superchefs, one of the fastest growing restaurants and fan base with locations in Louisville and Alabama have a clear vision on 2020 when it comes to giving their customers options when it comes to their menu. Starting, January 3rd, we will introduce a new menu.  The older recipes will get a face lift and then for our vegan customers they will be some great dishes for you to try.

Darnell “Superchef” Ferguson says “I’m so excited to announce this new menu.  I’ve always wanted to cater to the whole community instead of just a section.  This is a complete menu.  My team and I went back to the drawing board and updated our famous dishes and then we create dishes that our vegan patrons are going to love.  Instead of making it an option, it will be a part of our comprehensive menu.  I invite you to come in and try it.”

With the new menu, you will see the growth of the celebrity chef but the execution and presentation.  His range and his knowledge of food science has grown since he created his first menu seven years ago. You will see the quality of food and service will reflect his current skill set.

We are also looking for the “superhero” in you.  We are giving away a “golden ticket”.  Youth (up to the age of 17 years old) excelling in school, and the community will be rewarded with a ticket that gives them access to eat at Superchefs for life (or as long as the restaurant is in business).  If you know someone who is deserving send it to

Make sure you follow Superchef for big announcements in 2020.  We have some exciting news to share with you in the coming days.

The VIPP Report: SuperChefs’ owner Darnell Ferguson turns a hardship into a blessing


(Louisville, KY) The vision remains the same even through trials and tribulations.  Superchefs one year ago this week watched the building go up in flames only for the owner Darnell Ferguson and his team to regroup and move to a new location on Bardstown Road.  On the eve of their celebration to commemorate their success the restaurant receives another setback.  This time, the water pipe burst causing the restaurant to flood but like they say in entertainment “The show must go on”.  After closing temporarily to get things cleaned up, Superchefs reopens on Wednesday.

Darnell Ferguson says “This minor setback is only setting me up for something even bigger.  If I can’t handle the little obstacles like a busted pipe at one location, I may be blocking a blessing of multiple restaurants in several cities across the U.S. This is only a test to test my patience and my team and I are up for the challenge.”

Ferguson also started a new STOP THE VIOLENCE initiative.  He wanted to take his talents in the kitchen to be a blessing to youth in the area.  So, once a month, Ferguson and his Superchefs team will choose a day where a non-profit organization will receive proceeds from their restaurant sales.

Ferguson says “I would like to start with the organization AMPED.  The West Louisville based organization and its leadership work hard to keep youth off the streets and to expose them to the world of music from writing, performing and producing.  I support their efforts and want to see them succeed.”

The STOP THE VIOLENCE fundraiser will be held on Tuesday, Janauary 17, 2017.

Dave Christopher Sr with AMPED says “”We are so grateful to Darnell for helping AMPED to help the youth in our community. Super Chef Darnell is such an inspiration. He has been through so much and yet he continues to push forward with his dream and mission to inspire others to achieve greatness. A fire and then a flood and yet he keeps on smiling and thinking of others, wow!”
