When asked "Why Chengdu?" The International Butler Academy China CEO, Mr. Thomas Kaufmann, replied at the opening ceremony, "Chengdu’s rapid development in the past 10 years caught the attention of many countries. Compared to Beijing and Shanghai, Chengdu is developing very fast, and that makes the people here very open to foreign ideas. And to be a world-class professional butler, you need to break rules and give up old habits. It is my desire that through our service and training, we can integrate the finest western service with the most exquisite oriental cuisine.
