Behind every great company are great people.

CulinArt’s greatest asset is its people. Each member of CulinArt’s high-caliber team, recruited and selected from skilled, experienced candidates, plays an essential role in making sure that our clients and customers receive superior service, every time. That is why we value our team members as the most vital assets of our company. It is also why we continually invest in their growth through ongoing training, career advancement, development, and great benefits packages.

But don’t just take our word for it. Hear it from them:

 

“Working at CulinArt Group has been a dream job for me. Coming from a high-end catering company, I was extremely impressed with the enthusiasm and skill set of the staff as well as the quality of food and leadership at CulinArt. It is important to me to work alongside people that share my passion for food. I have grown both personally and professionally and am proud to say that I am currently a Food Service Director for CulinArt Group.”

  • Brian Smith, Food Service Director, Corporate Dining
    (Team member since 2008)

 

“At CulinArt Group, I am not just a number – I matter and my opinions count. We are not a cookie-cutter company. My menus are unique and it’s because of this that we stand out from the rest. Never have I worked at a place in which I have direct access to both the president of the company and the owner, and am able to express my ideas and actually have them implemented. I have grown so much here and can honestly say it has been because of the great management of the company.”

  • Angel Guerrero, Food Service Director, Private School
    (Team member since 2001)

 

“Being a valued CulinArt Group team member is a privilege I never take for granted. It is great to know the values of our company are strong and our leadership is setting the path for all. I have always said: ‘CulinArt is not for one but for all who are willing to do what it takes to make it happen for our clients and our company!’”

  • Carlos Rivera, Director of Dining Services, Corporate Dining
    (Team member since 2002)

 

“For the past 14 years, I have been part of this great family called CulinArt Group. I started as a dishwasher, and little by little, I learned and enjoyed new skills in the kitchen. Six years later, I was given the opportunity to become a manager. Today, I have the ability to team up and work with great chefs throughout the company. Thanks to these opportunities, CulinArt has helped me achieve many goals.”

  • Andres Rios, Director of Dining Services, Corporate Dining
    (Team member since 2000)

 

“CulinArt Group is not like any other corporate machine – management respects your abilities to run your account with your creative input, along with their promotional guidelines. It’s about you and your imagination on how to engage your clients and then share with other accounts and get ideas from them. Help is just an email away, and you won’t wait long for an answer.”

  • Don Boyles, Director of Dining Services, Corporate Dining
    (Team member since 2009)

 

“CulinArt Group is a great company for someone who is looking to advance their career. There are many opportunities to learn new skills and grow in the company. I love that we have a scholarship program. I look forward to growing with CulinArt!”

  • Karen Ucles, Cashier, Corporate Dining
    (Team member since 2013)

 

“I am so fortunate to have been part of such a wonderful team at CulinArt Group for over 16 years. I appreciate the dedication to excellence of our District Managers and Food Service Directors, along with the cooperation of each member of the organization. I am tremendously grateful to contribute to CulinArt’s success.”

  • Vy Dong, Accounting Coordinator, California Regional Office
    (Team member since 1998)

What our clients are saying

“Dear Chef Anthony: Hi! It’s the kids from Room 223 [and their teacher, Mrs. Smith]. We thank you for providing us with such great snacks and lunches! We know how hard you and your staff work. We have been talking as a class and we came up with some of our favorite snacks. We really love the brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and Scooby snacks. The soft pretzel bits are really good, too. Thank you again! ”

“I wanted to let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“This is EXACTLY the type of service and experience we had always envisioned for our patients at MSK Koch!  Thank you Chef Ryan for going out of your way for this patient and all patients and staff!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“This has been a year of unprecedented uncertainty, but through it all, Denee, chef Darby, Samantha, and the whole CulinArt team, provided the best dining experience the school has had in my thirteen year tenure.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with them, and I can't wait for next year when the craziness of COVID brings everyone back into the dining hall for meals. We look forward to working with Denee, Chef Darby, Samantha, and the rest of the CulinArt team again next year.”
