The management team at Café Services, a corporate dining company serving Massachusetts and the greater northeast, sends a warm "thank you" to the many associates who participated in the company-wide Toys for Tots drive this month. On December 19, Café Services' delivered cartons and cartons full of new, unwrapped toys to the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots warehouse in Londonderry. The Marines are delivering the gifts to less fortunate children in New Hampshire over the next few days—just in time to be opened on Christmas morning! "The response from associates at ALL Café Services locations, including our corporate division, has been just phenomenal," says Tara Stone, Director of Standards & Procedures for Corporate Dining. "We've been 'boxed in" by toys at the corporate office for weeks—all for a great cause!" Since early December, Café Services district managers have been visiting the company's cafes throughout New England to collect toys. The goal was to pack a full-sized van to the hilt. Brian Stone, Café Services President and CEO, is deeply grateful, but not surprised by the tremendous outpouring of support from employees. "We've always known our associates are the best", he says. 'Thank you' for going above and beyond to make the holidays a little brighter for so many kids." Share this story, Choose your platform! I’ve been born and bred corporate dining and corporate catering from the very beginning of my career in the Silicon Valley and now, since 2001 in the Boston Metro Area. While working my way up through the ranks, all the experience has led up to my current position as the Corporate Executive Chef for Café Services, based out of Manchester, NH. I have the privilege to be able to utilize creativity, research and technology to dream up our company’s new culinary programs and custom menus for corporate cafeteria clients and bring them to life. Café Services supplies the resources to ensure success of our ever-evolving companywide culinary initiatives and I’m very grateful for the opportunity. Seeing the success of new programs in the field is my motivation. It’s a win win.
