Second Annual Chili Cook-off


The home office hosted DentalOne Partners’ second annual chili cook-off! Why? Because we love chili!

Competition was tight and the stakes were high with a $25 Amazon gift card on the line. There were five anonymous chili submissions, all with completely unique tastes, and three judges. “Who knew chili could be so different,” Chad Fields, hygiene recruiter and chili judge, said.

The three judges rated each chili on a scale from 1-5 based on five criteria: uniqueness, aroma, texture, flavor and heat. The crowd watched in anticipation as the chili judges took each bite. Some may say the winner could be chosen before scores were tallied, from seeing which bowls were cleared.

CEO Tom Marler joined in too.

John Whitaker, vice president talent acquisition, took home the big W and an Amazon gift card! John produced the spiciest chili, producing enough flair to come out on top.
