The Niagara Falls Culinary Institute opened in September of 2012 on Old Falls Street in Niagara Falls New York. The 30 million dollar institute is part of Niagara County Community College, a SUNY institution, with the main campus at 3111 Saunders Settlement Road in Sanborn New York.

The Niagara Falls Culinary Institute currently has over 350 students enrolled and is growing. The state of the art culinary facility was constructed in the south end of the former Rainbow Centre building, occupying a third of the structure.
