our promise hero people at table

what we bring
to the table

We expect our food to taste good, but we want
it to do more than that. We want to know where it
came from. How it's made. Who prepared it.
We want it to tell a story.

Simple, Clean
& Honest

We keep our ingredients as clean as possible, so they taste the way nature intended. That means no artificial ingredients, additives or synthetic chemicals.

Our chefs pick the right ingredients for the right reasons. We support partners who share the same mission and care for their products, livestock and crops with respect and responsibility.

The Community

We make sure a minimum of 20% of our ingredients are grown, harvested or produced within 150 miles of campus to keep food fresh and communities thriving.

Hand Made Makes
A Difference

We take a hands-on approach to the way we prepare our meals. Our recipes are chef-developed and prepared in-house in small batches to ensure peak flavor.

Rooted In Health
