The SAGE Difference
Unparalleled serviceWhen you choose SAGE, you get more than great food – you become part of an extensive network of culinary talent.
Our chefs trained at the top culinary schools in North America, including the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), Johnson & Wales, Le Cordon Bleu, and New England Culinary Institute. Many of our team members have extensive experience in restaurants, country clubs, and educational settings. They all have one thing in common: a deep-seated desire to provide exceptional service to our clients.
Sustained, Organic GrowthSAGE grows one customer at a time. Our success at each venue makes this possible – generating buzz and positive references. SAGE expands by word of mouth. Share the excitement and help us grow!
Plenty of OpportunitiesOur steady, sustained growth provides wonderful career opportunities for team members. We are continually adding new positions across North America. We prefer to promote from within. Nearly half of open management positions are filled by current SAGE Team Members. Our culture prizes the training and cultivation of in-house talent.
We deliver unparalleled levels of support
District Managers focus quality time on the few clients they serve.
SAGE's District Managers oversee no more than ten accounts. They visit each account at least twice a month to spend quality time with the community. Most of our District Managers are trained professional chefs with years of culinary training. You'll see them don a chef coat and work in the kitchen alongside the rest of the team.
When you need additional resources for your community, the Culinary Support Team (CST) is prepared to step up to the occasion. This group of specially-trained mobile chefs and managers are prepared to work at any SAGE location for extended periods of time.
Meet the Rest of the Team
Our Home Office – SAGE House – is located just north of Baltimore, Maryland. We provide behind-the-scenes
support for our culinary teams across North America. Our dedicated professionals include registered
dietitians, accountants, software engineers, human resource professionals, graphic artists, purchasing
specialists, recruiters, attorneys, and executive chefs.
We also have dietitians, purchasing specialists, sales executives, and regional managers located throughout North America, ready to respond to any client need.
This extraordinary team provides the innovative, cost-effective resources that serve as the foundation for an exceptional dining experience.
