Benson Food Service

Employment & Recruitment

Welcome to Benson Food Service

We believe the difference between Benson Food Service and other foodservice companies is our people. We have mastered the art of finding and hiring the most talented, enthusiastic, qualified and committed people in the foodservice industry. At Benson, we understand that if we take good care of our own people, they’ll take good care of our customers.

That’s why our people stay with us. We treat our employees the way we want them to treat you, with respect, flexibility, and attention to the little things that make a difference to them. We hire the best and promote from within, always rewarding excellent performance and encouraging employees personal and professional growth. We have team members who have been with us for as long as 40 years, and the turnover rate among our employees is among the lowest in then industry.

We keep our folks well-informed about our own corporate policies as well as the policies for the particular clients for whom they work. It’s this transparency and communication that ensure we’re all on the same page at the same time – a quality our employees appreciate, because knowledge is empowering.

What makes the company culture different at Benson? We believe in connecting with people and making their dining experience one of the best parts of their day. When we do that, work becomes fun. Food as an integral part of life, and having pride in our food means quality, taste and a good time.

Part of the “something extra” we bring to the table is our emphasis on people; whether it’s our fellow team members or those people we serve. We want to make your day by giving you a smile when you’re stressed, a friendly word when you’re distracted, and a helpful suggestion if you’re unsure.

Our “Give Something Extra” Philosophy

We have a philosophy for each and every one on our service team to give something extra. A Benson Food Service employee:

  • Exhibits a positive, friendly and respectful attitude towards guests and other team members
  • Arrives to work on time and in correct uniform, clean shoes, clean and pressed black pants and shirt, apron, name tag, and a SMILE
  • Understands job duties and responsibilities, as well as having an eagerness to learn more and develop new skills
  • Promotes a fun and efficient work environment, focusing on guest satisfaction. We genuinely believe that every employee can choose his attitude and concentrate on making life better for the people around him or her. Our culture reflects this attitude, and you can see it in action at many of our client companies

The FISH Philosophy

As a part of something extra, all of our team members strive to implement the FISH! Philosophy, which means:

  • Be There
  • Make Their Day
  • Choose Your Attitude
  • Play!
