ChefAdvantage: Making School Lunch Easy Since 1992

ChefAdvantage was founded in 1992 in Atlanta, GA by a professional chef with a singular mission: to bring restaurant-quality dining to schools and childcare centers throughout the metro Atlanta area. Today, that vision has driven ChefAdvantage’s growth into a leading provider of delivered meal service at childcare centers, schools and after-school programs in metro Atlanta as well as onsite dining programs for premier charter schools, independent private schools, higher education institutions and childcare centers in metro Atlanta and across the Southeast.

Under the leadership of current CEO, Gordon D. Evans, since 2013, ChefAdvantage has steadily grown its reach and capabilities while maintaining its core commitment to outstanding quality, personalized service and financial integrity. The ChefAdvantage team knows that every school we serve is unique, and with that in mind, we work daily to provide tailored school dining programs and accessible, personal service with the aim of building long-term partnerships. In fact, ChefAdvantage is proud to still be serving the very first client we ever partnered with in 1992!

We believe in making lunch easy. That means fresh, delicious meals for kids, peace of mind for parents and reliable worry-free service and support for administrators.

The ChefAdvantage Team

As a team whose sole focus is educational dining service, we know that feeding the future is a serious responsibility. Were passionate about feeding kids well and making lunch the best time of the day. After all, there’s still a little bit of that hungry kid in all of us.
