Strategic Dining Services has been great to work with. Jeff (Kelley, VP of Operations) has truly been an asset in helping to get our dining services program to a top-notch level. His insight on plating, dining room arrangement, and unique ideas to make food more fun for our residents has been invaluable. The Charleston Senior Community would recommend Strategic Dining Services to anyone looking to ensure they deliver a 5-star product.

It is so exciting to see this (Dining Standards) and see the exciting changes that are happening.

With the leadership of Chef Jeff Kelley and Chef Kelly Brandt, the food services have turned around 100%.  While everyone’s dining experiences won’t always be flawless, the complaints are now almost non-existent. Now, we even receive food compliments and the Resident Council Food Committee is only meeting once a month.  I would recommend Strategic Dining Services to any facility wanting to improve their dining services.

The team at Strategic Dining Services blew me away with their level of expertise and commitment to dining excellence in the senior living industry.  Their solutions debunk myths that fresh food and homemade recipes are “to expensive” to purchase and prepare.  They teach communities how to raise the bar to the highest level and cater to the needs and preferences of individual residents, all within budget.  Our research shows that Dining is a key driver of satisfaction, loyalty and willingness to recommend. I hightly recommend Strategic Dining Services as a go-to solution to delighting your residents in the dining room.

I want you to know that we are going to be on budget this month.  This is the first time since the new budgets were rolled out.  Thank you for your time and helping support the team with systems and insight.  We particularly appreciate how profesional and supportive you are with the team.  That goes a long way in building trust and moral.  Thanks again for everything.

I’ll admit, after being here so long, that I have gotten “comfortable”, but now you (SDS) have energized me again. It is such a pleasure working with someone that has such passion for what they do.
