Our Passion is Food! At Bon Appetit Management Company we are committed to two things, great food and outstanding service! At Bon Appetit you won't find our managers referring to a corporate recipe book or our chefs microwaving the lunch special. We do not have standardized recipes or central commissaries, instead, our chefs and managers are expected to stay abreast of current culinary trends and bring cutting edge food into their cafes. We are a restaurant company that operates in contract food service. That means you will have the freedom to be creative, take risks, and truly shine. We are committed to our staff growing, trying new things, and learning all that they can. Our rapid growth and breadth of accounts translates into exciting opportunities for our people!
Career OpportunitiesPalo Alto, CA (July 11, 2007) – Bon Appétit Management Company, a major onsite restaurant company, has urged its 30 chicken and turkey suppliers to move toward using controlled atmosphere killing (CAK), a slaughter method that causes less suffering than the current method of shackling birds while they’re fully conscious, electrocuting them into paralysis, and then cutting their throats. The Humane Society of the United States, the nation’s largest animal welfare organization, welcomes this news as a positive step in the right direction, since a shift in the poultry industry toward CAK would help reduce the suffering of billions of birds annually.
Our DreamOur Dream is to be the premier onsite restaurant company known for its culinary expertise and commitment to socially responsible practices.
We are a culture driven to create food that is alive with flavor and nutrition, prepared from scratch using authentic ingredients. We do this in a socially responsible manner for the well being of our guests, communities and the environment.
At Bon Appétit, we recognize the great power and importance of food. Dining rooms are gathering places. Breaking bread together helps to create a sense of community and comfort. We recognize the important role we fill and take great care to honor our position on a corporate or school campus. We show this care in our operations every day by…
Cooking food from scratch using fresh seasonal ingredients
Taking our role in the community seriously and making socially responsible purchasing decisions
Serving great tasting, authentic and nutritious food that exceeds the expectations of our guests including vegetarian, vegan, and international diners
Providing opportunities for all our employees, including student workers, to develop their potential and abilities
Recognizing that every client we serve is unique and creating tailored food programs for each one
Serving a wide variety of menu items at each meal, each day keeping things fresh, fun, and interesting – you won’t find a cycle menu at a Bon Appétit account
Viewing our operations as onsite restaurants competing with local off campus restaurants - never resting on the idea of a "captive audience"
Being a leader in our industry by working to create a more sustainable food system
We believe that if we live by these tenets, Bon Appétit will indeed be a very select company and we will reach our dream. We have the conviction that today can be a little better and a little more fulfilling than yesterday. We have the will to achieve excellence through a wealth of dedicated management talent. And... we have the courage to look closely at ourselves, so that we are always striving to improve.
