MORE THAN JUST EMPLOYEES

OUR 1,600 TEAM MEMBERS ARE LIKE FAMILY - TO US AND OUR CLIENTS.


At Creative Dining Services, you’ll find a talented, seasoned management team and staff members who are focused on you and your organization. We create a nurturing, inspiring environment that helps them reach their professional goals. As our founding philosophy statement says, “Our clients and employees are our greatest assets; without either, we would not exist as a company. We will strive to listen, respond to their needs, and provide growth opportunities for both.”

And our employees pass along their enthusiasm for providing superior hospitality and facility management services to your community. Whether manning the carving station, adjusting the projector or welcoming residents, they'll come to know your guests by name and personal preferences, creating a warm spirit of community throughout your facility
