The one person who motivates me is… my wife. She is so strong and put together.

More About Aaron Chamberlin:
Chef Aaron Chamberlin is the founder and CEO of Good Things Coming, an Arizona-based cannabis brand. After a storied culinary career working with luminaries like Michel Richard, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Nancy Oakes, followed by success as owner of Phoenix restaurants St. Francis, Taco Chelo, and Phoenix Public Market, Chamberlin transitioned his culinary talents to cannabis where he is redefining the edibles market.
As a chef owner of past restaurants, Chamberlin is an entrepreneur at heart. He was drawn to the cannabis industry because of its tremendous growth trajectory, the ability to stretch his creativity as a chef, and the chance to offer products that have the power to help people use food to heal.
Good Things Coming is elevating the edible cannabis sector with its innovative product lines that put a focus on both taste and experience with sophisticated flavors. Chamberlin has created chef-driven recipes using local and quality ingredients to craft precisely dosed sweet treats that tantalize the taste buds while relaxing the nerves.
Chamberlin got his start in the food industry growing up cooking with his grandfather who was also a chef. At age 15 he started working as a dishwasher in a restaurant and knew he found his calling in the kitchen. After pursuing his culinary education in San Francisco, he spent a decade training and honing his skill and style with top chefs throughout the country. He returned to his hometown of Phoenix to develop and open the wildly popular La Grande Orange Pizzeria and Chelsea’s Kitchen before launching his own restaurants.
