Quest Food Management Services is creating employment opportunities for families across the Chicago area.
CHICAGO, IL, March 18, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — There is little doubt about the central role of the food industry in communities, institutions, and across the nation. Players in the food value chain play an extremely important role in helping achieve the universal dream for healthy families, satisfied institutions, and a well-oiled society. No one seems to understand this truism better than the Chicago-based Quest Food Management Services.
History of the Company:
Founded in 1985 in Lombard, IL, the company’s main focus was to provide fresh food to educational institutions in and around the Midwest. Thirty-five years later, the company has become a game-changer and has taken the fresh food industry in the region to a whole new level. The figures below are a testament to this exponential growth.
The company now boasts of serving over 88 educational institutions in 110+ facilities across the Midwest, and the list is growing fast. In terms of revenue, the company posts annual revenue of $65 million, up from $3 million some ten years ago. That’s quite an impressive feat for a food service company less than four decades in existence. This growth is attributed to a deliberate strategy of delivering on their promises and fidelity to the founding principles.
The company currently provides a range of services, including dietary and nutritional counseling, menu development, facility design, and consulting on food service programs. The major customer segments include K-12, higher ed, corporate dining, healthcare and conference centers.
