New Vision for Culinary Excellence

Quality Culinary Solutions


After witnessing firsthand the impact that a vibrant hospitality service can have on organizational culture and guest satisfaction, we decided to offer our decades of culinary experience to a variety of care facilities. We partner with senior living facilities interested in improving their financial health and overall culinary experience with a self-operating focus.

Since we first started in senior care food services in 1984, we’ve been working to break the traditional mold for dining service experiences and food quality. We know the factors that drive guest satisfaction and we collaborate with you to formulate a comprehensive roadmap that we implement together.

Rich has been directly responsible for the planning, preparation, and serving of 18,000 daily meals for 6,000 guests, and developed a respect for the independent spirit of each community. We know the importance of culinary autonomy to create menus that reflect local tastes, but we also recognize that the “figure it out on your own” method can often come at the expense of local budgets or quality. We leverage industry relationships and knowledge to bring value in every conversation with our clients.
