At Metz, we take great pride in the wonderful testimonials from our partners and team members.
It’s not what we say, it’s what they say:
“We made the decision to transition our nutrition services contract to Metz at the end of 2018. From the first interactions with the transition team, they put our worries at ease. Transitioning numerous hospitals in various geographic regions over a matter of days was not an easy task, but the Metz team executed flawlessly. Since then, the relationship has only grown.
Metz has been committed to quality and innovation and has brought to our menus and food offerings that have been appreciated by both employees and patients. In the first year, our retail sales increased by 18%. From the patient perspective, the chefs at each campus work to create menus that cater to local cuisine preferences. I can say definitively that our previous vendor did not show as much care or concern with adjusting to local requests.
From massive catering events, to making sure every patient gets just what he/she wants to eat, Metz has been an amazing partner. I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention that during the recent COVID-19 crisis, Metz was with us every step of the way as we adjusted protocols, offered free meals to all employees for months and needed to create safe social distancing environments in all our cafeterias. Their leadership both with patients and Nutrition Services employees during this pandemic should be commended.”

“The Metz Culinary Management team has met all expectations and promises made in their proposal. They were committed and engaged through the transition and startup process. They brought a team to speak with the contract employees to introduce their team and company. They explained the transition process and interview / application timeline for those potential employees. Startup as well as the transition off the Seamless Summer Option went very well. I have received multiple unsolicited compliments for students, parents, and staff about how terrific the food is. Our middle school principal’s only complaint has been that some days his students struggle making a menu choice because there are too many good options. This principal also complimented the positive improvement of staff customer service with the Metz Culinary and our new Food Service Director. I would recommend Metz Culinary Management as a partner in school foodservice management. They have made a positive impact as great partner in just a few months.”

“After multiple years with another food service provider, our university concluded that it was time to make a change. We considered two food service providers and visited campuses where they provided services. We met with the staff, the administration, and had a meal. Our decision was to go with Metz and we have been pleased with the outcome.
On a residential campus, food makes a huge difference in the overall student satisfaction. Expectations for consistency, variety, quality, service, friendliness, are usually high. I have found Metz to be a good partner in the food service business. Their business model lends itself to being receptive to feedback and making adjustments as much as is possible.
I think our food service has improved significantly in the past three years. The general manager and staff are wonderful to work with and the regional support from the home office has been positive. I am glad to be a partner with them as we serve our students.”
—Robert L, VP Student Affairs & Dean of Students, Metz college partner
“A special shout out to the man who makes our Montgomery 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.”
–Steve K, CFO, Metz partner private school
“I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with Brian and his staff. During the summer I had principals and teachers telling me how great everything looks and how clean their rooms are. Never have we been this ready this early. Our 3 campuses look fantastic and I get compliments everywhere I go. Brian goes above and beyond in everything I ask of him. We have big plans for East come spring and I’m looking forward to working on these projects. I think just about everyone has bought into the changes and couldn’t be happier.”
Barbara F, VPO, Metz partner school district
“I have known John Metz, founder of Metz Culinary Management, for over forty years. He and his family have grown their business by providing great food and caring service to the businesses that they serve. In my mind what makes Metz Culinary Management special is that they are large enough to bring economies-of-scale to their client partners but are also small enough for the Metz family to really care and be engaged with each location that they serve.”

Team Members Share Their Metz Experience:
The people I work with are like my family, we love making the patients happy and making them smile.
I like working at Metz because of the atmosphere and culture. The difference between us and other food service companies is it’s always focused around family.
Bringing things to kids that they might not have access to at home is very rewarding. We love working with the children and we do have a lot of fun.
