Guckenheimer has grown from a West Coast regional player into a national company that is the largest provider to the corporate dining segment outside of the “Big Three” of Aramark, Compass and Sodexo. It currently operates in more than 340 locations, although Northern California remains its strongest territory. Two thirds of the company’s business comes from managing dining operations for its clients, with catering accounting for another 20%. The remainder come from office coffee and other services.
In the past year, the company completed its new organizational structure with a new CFO and a fully staffed sales team. With clients, the emphasis remains on serving local menus tailored to each operation, along with a focus on the nutrition aspects of individual client wellness programs.
