AURORA, IL, June 03, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Quest Food Management Services is proud to announce that it has ranked #32 among the top 50 contract companies in 2021. The news is a huge deal to the company that currently has 97 contracts with schools, colleges/ universities, and businesses across the midwest.
Quest Food Management Services provides local communities with fresh and nutritious food. All of the meals are prepared by local workers who are passionate about food. They prepare all meals from scratch using locally sourced ingredients so people can taste the freshness in every bite.
For the past seven years, Quest Food Management Services has also been named one of the top 50 food management companies in the US. This year in 2022, it ranked #28 on that list.
Quest Food Management Services CEO Mike McTaggart believes that recent changes to how the business operated during the COVID-19 pandemic helped the company stay on track and open more jobs. Some of the modifications that helped the organization improve include:
More focus centered on streamlining and creating menus focused on takeout orders and delivery.
Effective ways to minimize the cost of food and production while still delivering high-quality meals.
More health and safety of employees is a number one priority. While teams were smaller to create minimal contact, Quest Foods created more jobs because the company needed backup teams of healthy individuals.
More food programs came into places, such as the Summer Food Service Program and the Emergency Meal Services.
While the food operations focused on takeout food, they also improved by switching to compostable takeout containers. However, certain takeout items may still be packaged using #1 and #2 recyclable packaging.
Partnered with companies like UberEats, DoorDash, and UberEats to make it easier for campuses and corporations to arrange delivery.
Organizations across the midwest that have contracts with Quest Food Management Services were more than impressed by their changes to the operations. The company valued its relationships with business partners. They went above and beyond to ensure they had the information needed to obtain food services during the pandemic and when re-opening began.
One of the ways that Quest Food Management ensured that all of their clients knew what to expect they provided a Fall Re-Opening Kit to entail more about how the organization's services have changed for the better. This kit also included a safety video to provide the clients with the information they needed to know about safely sharing a space.
Quest Food Management Services continues to grow despite any challenges the economy puts in the way. This company is an ongoing success because of the value it places on its employees. When the people running the day-to-day operations of a business are valued, they can make the company grow. McTaggart goes out of his way to make sure all his employees are cared for.
