Chef Franco Duarte-Piza

Chef Franco Duarte-Piza

The head chef for the popular Pechanga Buffet since 2016, Franco Duarte-Piza is a versatile and self-developed culinary talent who grew up catching his dinners of fish, shrimp and octopus in the warm waters around his native Acapulco home. By the time the youngest of nine followed his family to San Diego, Duarte-Piza was ready to follow them into the restaurant business.

He began apprenticing for his oldest brother – an established pastry chef in San Diego. That segued into a cook position at Cindy Black’s acclaimed restaurant. Several more positions with increasing responsibility around the San Diego area followed before Duarte-Piza found himself at Pechanga as production supervisor. As head chef for a buffet that seats approximately 12,000 guests a week, Duarte-Piza is known for combining his well-honed skills in seafood and Latin dishes with creating the international variety of dishes the Pechanga Buffet is known for.
