Considerable thought and attention is given to matching your organization with an on-site manager best suited to meet your needs. Still Waters believes that your manager is the single most important individual in each account, assisting your employees and representing Still Waters Food Service. We understand contract food service differs from the restaurant business, in that each of our accounts is unique. We hire Food Service Directors with the background to be successful in each account. Minimixing paperwork at the account level enables your manager to spend more time with their customers and employees. Cost control is most effectively managed not with forms and paperwork but with hands-on training and support. We need management, employee and customer participation in developing new programs.
