Hope you all are enjoying Papa’s Bakeria! This year we changed things up a bit and launched a Gameria in the spring instead of the summer. While we may be a long ways from the next Gameria, we decided this is the absolute best time of the year to start up … Papa’s Next Chefs 2016!
As some of you may know, the Papa’s Next Chef tournament is a yearly challenge where you, the fans, get to choose who will be working at Papa’s next restaurant! We will be showcasing 2 battles each week, one for the guys position and one for the girls position. The winners of each week move on to the next round and one step closer to becoming Papa’s Next Chefs!
This year we have the Pomegranate Division, the Peach Division, the Kiwi Division, and the Dragonfruit Division. Let’s get this party started!

- Several customers have faced each other in past PNC's:
- On May 23 2016, Flipline announced they're switching the Next Chefs Rounds from Monday to Tuesday, because of the Papa's Taco Mia! HD Sneak Peeks.
- This is the second time that both Hacky Zak and Clover were winners in the same division finals.
- This is Clover's 4th appearance in the semi-finals (2012, 2014-2016)
- This is also Clover's 3rd Finals appearance (2012, 2014, 2016)
- This is Carlo's 4th semifinal appearance (2011, 2014, 2015)
- Carlo & Deano are the 2nd and 3rd people to loses to both Flipline Developers (Both lost to Tony in 2014 & Matt in 2016)

- Kiwi Division is the only division that doesn't feature a female customer making her debut in a PNC.
- Pomegranate Division is the only division that doesn't feature a male customer making his debut in a PNC.
- This is the very first PNC tournament where all of the finalists come from each division.
- Like PNC 2014, Matt and Clover became finalists, making this the first time two finalists in the previous PNC appear in the finals again together.

Rounds and Finals
After 15 exciting rounds of competition, Matt and Clover have become this years Papa’s Next Chefs!!!
Now, both members of Flipline Studios will have been chefs along with all the members of Scarlett and the Shakers! Clover and Matt will go on to be the chefs at Papa Louie’s next restaurant extravaganza!
But what restaurant will it be??
You will need to be patient. Because of our release of Papa’s Bakeria earlier this year, the next Gameria will not be out until later this year. So we are a little while away from the official announcement of the game.
But we promise it will be worth the wait!
