About Us

Our exclusive focus on independent and private K-12 schools, colleges and universities makes us experts and allows us to focus on details other companies don’t even notice. That means anticipating your needs and making sure you get the best and most attentive service possible.

K-12

Good nutrition is good education.

Our fresh, student-friendly menus and dining options help ensure that children and young adults in your care leave the table ready to learn every day. Consider us your partner in preparing students for the future by building healthy eating habits that will serve them for a lifetime.

Higher Education

Everyone majors in food.

College students, staff and faculty depend on your dining service program to deliver more than just great meals. Our higher education programs provide the choices, flexibility, service and affordability they expect; our custom menus, brand partnerships and culinary expertise work to attract new students and serve them through graduation.

Our Business Philosophy

The cornerstone of our business philosophy is simple. As a God-centered food service company, above all else, we’re here to be a blessing to others. For our clients, we call it “going beyond the table,” partnering with schools in creative ways to attract, serve and retain students and families through great food experiences.

Our CEO, Britt Hunt, built each of his businesses on one consistent, fundamental idea- that we would always be a God-centered company comprised of passionate professionals who treat others with integrity and approach their daily responsibilities with a servant’s heart. Our vision of “transforming lives through great food experiences” becomes a reality when our employees put our clients’ needs before their own.

We show up every day and work to make that vision a reality by putting into action Pedestal Foods® mission, “to purposely integrate into campus culture to help our clients nurture their students through great nutrition, memorable dining experiences, and a spirit of joyful service, every day.” This is actively displayed in the relationships we build with our clients, how we care for our students, and the active role we take in building the community on each campus we are blessed to serve.

We’re here to support and grow your school – no matter your specific need.

Your Business is Our Passion
