Our Transformational Philosophy
Food is at the heart of what we do. As a transformational organization, our thoughtful menu philosophy and our impact on the world motivates us to consistently strive for excellence.
Over the past decade, we have earned a national reputation as a trailblazer in health and wellness initiatives, industry-leading food sourcing and sustainability achievements, culinary authenticity and quality and supply chain management. We continue to be regarded as a leader in the culinary industry through a variety of honors and awards – notably recognized as IFMA (International Foodservice Manufacturers Association) Gold and Silver Plate Society Members.
Many of our chefs have been classically trained at institutions like the Culinary Institute of America and Johnson & Wales. We regularly bring world-renowned experts — like Joyce Goldstein, Mai Pham, Suvir Saran, and Brian Voltaggio — to our campus to share their knowledge and experience with our culinary team. Our relationship with the Culinary Institute of America and various organizations help us develop world-class talent at the University.
