Sustainability. We serve your perfect shade of green.

We pledge to be environmental stewards by working closely with clients, sustainability partners and vendors on dining concepts, products and programs that meet your needs while protecting resources for future generations.

Here’s a small sample of typical earth-friendly practices we are prepared to offer in concert with our clients’ philosophies.

In the food we serve

  • Source organic and locally produced foods to build seasonal menus around fresh, local produce and ingredients
  • Offer hormone-free milk and fair trade coffee and other options such as cage-free eggs
  • Partner with local and state agencies to promote local products and companies

In the way we prepare and serve food

  • Practice water and energy conservation by offering EnergyStar equipment and conducting routine audits to identify opportunities to reduce output
  • Use biodegradable food and beverage containers, napkins and trash bags
  • Offer reusable mugs, containers and serviceware

In the way we clean

  • Recycle cans, paper and plastic as well as food scraps for composting
  • Participate in programs that recycle cooking oils waste into biofuels
  • Use environmentally friendly cleaning agents and recycled cleaning materials like mop heads made from recycled plastic with handles from renewable bamboo

Additionally, we continue to educate and train employees on environmentally friendly practices for work and home. And, we’re committed to working with suppliers whose products and practices reflect the same mindset.
