Managing an on-site café is much like cooking a pot of soup: For satisfying results, you often have to adjust as you keep moving forward.
A cook might toss extra spices into simmering broth to boost flavor. A foodservice management company might fine-tune menus to lower costs. Both tasks require alertness, expertise, and flexibility. And these are the qualities a good steward possesses.
With over 25 years in the foodservice business in Westchester and Fairfield counties, we consider ourselves experienced stewards when it comes to overseeing our clients’ cafes. We look after all of your foodservice needs and make sure your employees enjoy our café and catering services. You entrust us with bringing first-class meals to your enterprise in a responsible manner. Our job is to ensure that your trust is well placed.
It’s All In The Details
From staffing requirements to the price of coffee, we treat your dollars like our dollars—very carefully. To this end, The Good Table works closely with a select group of reliable vendors as we continuously seek the best quality for the best price.
In addition, we work collaboratively with our clients to make sure goals are reached. We regularly meet to analyze café sales and financial reports together, assess our progress, and discuss possible changes to menus, purchases, or staffing.
Our culture of stewardship doesn’t stop at the doors of our cafés. We consider the effects of our daily choices on the planet as well, consulting with our clients, at their discretion, on the feasibility of sustainable practices in our cafés. Our green approach has sharpened our awareness of our environmental impact and improved the way we do business.
The amount of waste produced by a corporate café can be staggering, so we continually explore ways to reduce the number of items we throw away. In some locations, our customers have the option of using china service instead of plastic, and many of the disposables we do use—plates, bowls, cups, take-out containers, and cutlery—are biodegradable.
Buying from local farms whenever possible, we lessen the demand for produce trucked from thousands of miles away, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And we recycle the most commonly used materials in our kitchens: glass, plastic, aluminum, and oil.
Good stewardship…it’s about keeping things in balance. From our clients’ checkbooks to the earth we call home, we strive every day to protect the things we value most.
