Our Staff

In Culinary School, Robert Adamson studied under John Kinsella, one of twelve Master Chefs in the United States. Having now been in the restaurant business for over 20 years, Robert has worked at Executive Chef levels at The Precinct and The Waterfront, as well as Owner of Robert Adamson Catering, which later grew into Primizia Market and Bakery.

In 2010, Robert felt a much greater calling. Through the PLAY series at SouthBrook Christian Church, Robert’s heart and mind were opened to see how God could use his gifts and talents to do good in the community. Robert learned how his Personality, Learnings, Abilities and Yearnings could be used by God for His purposes. Yearnings bring God into the world as our gifts intersect with the real needs around us. When God is in us, places in our soul burn with His desire to set the world right. Robert followed that yearning and put his life in PLAY by bringing the community café concept to the Dayton area.

Robert’s vision comes from God giving him the heart to reach out to people in need and the talent to provide healthy, affordable meals.
