Fresh Food

Our culinary standard is simple. As the first company to commit to fresh ingredients and scratch cooking, we know truly fresh food. We use ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible, building customized menus around what’s in season, not what’s preserved.

This means your employees and guests won’t have to compromise when it comes to what they eat. Whether they are looking for a quick bite between meetings, catching up with colleagues during lunch, or enjoying the catering during a board meeting, we have designed our business to cater to their needs, delivering authentic dishes with flavors and aromas that create excitement with every meal.

Service Excellence

At the core of our business is the belief that the way we serve each dish is just as important as the meal itself.  We will never sacrifice quality, as delivering unrivaled guest delight is our highest priority. We go the extra mile to learn what matters most to the members of your organization; to respond, engage, and even surprise them. This is how we stay responsive to your needs and define what it means to exceed expectations.

From our line cooks to our CEO, we are all committed to living up to the promises we make. We ensure easy access to every member of our team to give you, as our partners, the comfort and peace of mind of knowing we all stand behind the future of your business.

Sustainability

We have built sustainable practices into our business not because we have to, but because it is an essential part of our culinary standards.

Our approach to sustainability begins with the desire to serve only the freshest, best-tasting ingredients. Our Fresh Food Pledge and Guest Commitment guide our environmentally responsible practices and relationships with local growers and suppliers to support your goals for sustainability. Not only do these efforts result in better tasting meals, but they help to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint, minimize waste, and reduce costs.
