It is our mission 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.

The Importance of Food

At Bon Appétit Management Company, we recognize the great power and importance of food. 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 at the Art Institute of Chicago. 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, including vegetarian, vegan, and international dinners, that exceeds the expectations of our guests
  • Providing opportunities for all our employees to develop their potential and abilities
  • Recognizing that every client we serve is unique and creating tailored food programs for each one
  • 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.
