“I’ve been working with Gourmet Innovations for several years. Chef Bob and his team think of unique ways to deliver what I want. There really is no limit to their creativity. I cannot tell you the compliments I have received over the years regarding the menus. The team has such a pleasant personality and “can do” attitude. Their food and the quality of service is bar none. This is why I keep coming back to Gourmet Innovations.”

“Gourmet Innovations has served our group of older adults for several years. Our people LOVE Chef Bob and his staff. The food is delicious and prepared perfectly. The menu is varied with a great selection of options. Trust me, it’s not easy to please a group of 70 plus year adults, and Gourmet Innovations makes the grade with them. Thanks for all you do for Lifespan Resources and our Lifespan Academy.”
