K-12 Dining

Providing children nutritious foods, that fuel their learning, is our privilege. Sharing our knowledge about food and where it comes from, is our passion. Quest believes that the landscape of the “school cafeteria” is undergoing a long overdue overhaul.  The variety of food, cuisine, and dining experiences children have available to them today shouldn’t stop at the doors of their school. 

We believe in offering:

  • Traditional, kid-friendly favorites, made from scratch
  • Authentic international dishes
  • Fresh, local products
  • Made-to-order menu options
  • Inviting dining environment
  • Healthy choices that are flavorful and appealing

We believe that the food experience shouldn’t be limited to the cafeteria.  Our kitchen-to-classroom approach provides educational opportunities for students to learn curriculum lessons on food science, history and agriculture, through food.



College & University Dining

Our goal is to provide the highest value meals possible, driven by student choice, variety, quality, innovation, and responsiveness to student needs.

Dining on campus is more than just eating, it's a way to build community. Quest incorporates exciting events, a dynamic menu, and a variety of convenient and healthy items offered "to-go", to meet the needs of a student's schedule. 

We offer full-service catering programs to meet the needs of higher education's fundraising needs, as well as express catering to suit the demands of budget-conscious student clubs and staff/faculty department meetings. Our model promotes maximum flexibility and financial stewardship for our clients, and our team has decades of leadership experience in serving higher ed institutions.
