Independent Education

Customize dining for your community

Whether you have one centralized dining hall or multiple locations serving day students and residential students, partnering with Metz Culinary Management will support your institutional goals and help you maintain a reputation of distinction.

Parents select independent schools because they offer a unique educational experience. We believe the food you serve should be extraordinary as well. With Metz as your partner, you will get a fresh, restaurant-inspired dining program with competitive meal plans and the opportunity to bring national brands like We Proudly Serve Starbucks® and Caribou Coffee® to your community.

Our Dietitians Know Nutrition

Our chefs prepare fresh, enjoyable meals for students, faculty, and staff daily, including the weekends for residential campuses. We accommodate virtually any special dietary need through smart sourcing and custom menu creation, including healthy and seasonal options, ethnic foods, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan choices. All menus are supported by a robust nutritional system for recipe and menu management and the culinary creativity of our campus chefs.

We also partner with you to incorporate dining services into your educational curriculum. After all, food can be incorporated into almost any subject matter: science, health, social studies, and more. Are you looking to start or maintain a campus garden? We can do that too. We’ll continually work to help you nourish both the mind and the body.

What They're Saying

“A special shout-out to the man who makes our school lunches amazing, delicious, and possible! Preparing family style meals for every single student and faculty member is no easy task, but Chef Ron pulls it off every single day. Thank you for all that you do, Chef Ron! You’re a big part of what makes our school so special.”
