Look Who’s Talking

The best sources to document Pioneer’s ability to deliver on promised services are our clients.

 

Trevecca is 110 years old. In that time, we have made one decision regarding the outsourcing of food service. We chose Pioneer and then repeated that choice for the past 37 years. Their service is solid and they understand how a university operates. I highly recommend our friends, Pioneer.
DR. DAN BOONE – PRESIDENT – TREVECCA NAZARENE UNIVERSITY

 

Pioneer has exceeded our expectations for food service. The food selection is varied, high quality, and constantly evaluated. Each day’s dining experience is anticipated because the food selections are unique and superb in taste. Management responds immediately to requests and responding to any administrative concerns. Food service is one of the essentials of college life that must be done right–I’m excited to bring guests to the dining hall as I know they will have a positive experience. I highly endorse Pioneer College Caterers for their administrative responsiveness, competitive pric­ing, food quality, student-centeredness, and providing a caring ethos for our campus community!
DR. STEPHEN LIVESAY – PRESIDENT – BRYAN COLLEGE

 

At Nyack College, Pioneer College Caterers—both the on-site and off-site management—has been extremely responsive to the needs of our campus community. Our latest menu upgrade is a prime example of Pioneer’s commitment to ensuring our satisfaction. Camaraderie has developed over the years and these service providers have become reliable friends. Complaints about food and parking top the list on most college campuses, but we can say that we receive fewer about the former than the latter.
Pioneer’s first-rate people, first-rate value, and first-rate service are a winning combination.
DR. MICHAEL D. SCALES – PRESIDENT – NYACK COLLEGE

 

I appreciate the commitment that Pioneer has to serving the institution by serving our students. They have a strong commitment to excellence and will go to great lengths to assure that things are just right.
DR. JULES GLANZER – PRESIDENT – TABOR COLLEGE

 

Pioneer College Caterers continues to exceed our expectations in all areas. Committed to excellence and responsive to our team’s input and feedback, PCC has proven time and time again that we can depend upon them. We are grateful for the long-term relationship and count them a valued partner as we seek to provide an outstanding experience for our students, staff, faculty, and thousands of guests who visit campus each year.
DR. KEITH NEWMAN – CEO RESIDENTIAL EDUCATION / EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT – INDIANA WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY

 

Pioneer College Caterers has been one of the most enjoyable corporate relationships we have en­countered at Campbellsville University. Normally, one would not use the term, “enjoyable” when it comes to the “in’s and out’s” of corporate business dealings. Yet, we feel very comfortable using that term to describe the frank and honest relationship we have developed with Pioneer over the past decade. Providing food service is a complicated and daily process that can either leave students/customers happy or disappointed. We have found Pioneer to embody a service ethic that is full of positive and “can do” spirit. They realize that they are as good as their last meal. If our students/customers are happy they will return and help to bring additional students to Campbellsville Univer­sity. This in turn is good business for Pioneer. Communication flows easily and freely through their corporate structure. If a problem arises, they are working on a solution and will implement it within a matter of hours. All of us at CU feel that this is the “servant” attitude that we are trying to instill in our students as they leave our campus. Hence, we are glad to do business with a company that lives that management practice.
DR. MICHAEL V. CARTER – PRESIDENT – CAMPBELLSVILLE UNIVERSITY

 

Pioneer has been providing our food service needs for 15 years. The quality of service is unparal­leled. We receive excellent food and services for our students and outstanding client care. This is a company that solicits and responds to feedback in a timely and consistent fashion. They are part of our University and bring a positive contribution to campus life. Our students appreciate Pioneer and enjoy a good relationship with the management staff on campus. I have worked with very few com­panies who work so hard and listen so well to our needs, goals, and ideas. The dining commons under Pioneer’s leadership has become an integral part of campus life. I can offer no higher praise for the Pioneer College Caterers.
DR. TODD J. WILLIAMS – PRESIDENT – CAIRN UNIVERSITY

 

Cedarville University is honored to partner with Pioneer College Caterers. I consider it a partnership because of the way they strive to serve our students with excellence, and the value they place on the relationship with the administration. We work together to provide a great experience for our campus community, and I recommend Pioneer without reservation.
DR. THOMAS WHITE – PRESIDENT – CEDARVILLE UNIVERSITY

 

When a need to revisit our food service contract presented itself in my first year as president, I thought immediately of Pioneer College Caterers. My past experience with them was very positive, and now that they are on board I can say they have performed beyond my highest expectations! Very professional, with a “students first” mission, Pioneer offers high quality, high touch and com­petitive pricing all in the same package. I couldn’t be more pleased. Our partnership will be a major catalyst in improving our campus experience for students as we position ourselves for growth!
TODD S. VOSS – PRESIDENT – SOUTHERN WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY

 

Pioneer has always met our expectations. Perhaps what is most notable is that Pioneer has never rested on its laurels, but is always eager to improve its quality of service. Pioneer is responsive to the needs of our 442 students and is flexible in its approach. When a new challenge arises, Pioneer is quick to ask, “What can we do to meet this challenge?” Pioneer continues to do all the little things right which makes for an enjoyable dining experience. LPS engages the service of Pioneer not only for our students, but for every large and small event held on our campus, confident that both the offering and the service will be excellent.
REV. MATT CRASS – PRESIDENT – LUTHER PREPARATORY SCHOOL

 

Pioneer has been a valued and trusted partner for many years. Our students, faculty, staff, and guests enjoy great food and thoughtful, personal service. The staff is professional, caring, and genuinely committed to providing great service. Our campus foodservice management team go out of their way to make sure that not only our general food service needs are met, but our special needs as well. The quality of their catering services is outstanding, as is their attention to every detail. It is a pleasure to plan an event with them, knowing that it will be successful and our guests will be impressed.
DR. BILL GREER – PRESIDENT – MILLIGAN COLLEGE

 

When exploring new relationships, it is prudent to inquire about terminated ones. We would be pleased to discuss the few “lost client” case histories, as well as refer you to them for your own inquiries.
