Jordan Bayles is part of a 20-person team to help serve food to guests and athletes at the summer games.
"It's definitely a great honor especially considering the other 20 were not all kitchen staff," said Bayles.
Currently the Executive Chef at Indiana State University, Bayles says he loves traveling and working in other countries.
So when the opportunity came up to got to london.. he said he couldn't pass it up.
"I'm kind of in love with the culture and everything, it's such a different place from here so I'm really excited at the opportunity," said Bayles.
And while Bayles will go from serving hundreds to serving thousands, he says can't wait to utilize his skills at such a historic event.
"They're expecting for opening and closing ceremonies 10,000 people for cocktail receptions so it'll be a huge change between the few hundred people events we do here and the 10,000 there," said Bayles.
Bayles is set to arrive in London on July 23 and will be there for about three weeks.
Prior to Indiana State, Bayles put his culinary talents to work at the Terre Haute Country Club, Terre Haute Regional Hospital and Westminster Village.
