Our Recipe for Success
is Simple

  1. Provide nothing less than old-fashioned customer service.

  2. Serve quality products & prepared food that we ourselves would eat. 

  3. Base every decision on integrity and transparency.


Within a few months we began the transition to Skillet Kitchens. This was the wisest decision we have made so far. Not only have we received more than we paid for, but the customer service is without question the best. Since the switch we have received nothing but good feedback on the quality and quantity of food that is being served.
