Marine Corps Food and Hospitality Excellence Awards Announced

Release Date: 8/28/2006

MCB QUANTICO --   Forty-three Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) Food and Hospitality activities have earned excellent ratings in the 2005 Marine Corps Food and Hospitality Excellence Awards program. 

The awards were presented at the MCCS World Wide Conference in Louisville, KY on 15 August 2006.

The goal of this annual awards program is to provide meaningful recognition to nonappropriated fund food and hospitality activities that have achieved the highest degree of excellence during a fiscal year.

According to Carol Garland, Head of the Marine Corps Food and Hospitality Operations Branch, "The goal of the Excellence Award program is to recognize those food and hospitality facilities who not only meet the Marine Corps' high standards of excellence, but have exceeded the standards and by doing so, have exceeded the expectations of our guests. 

Garland added, "Many of this year"s recipients are prior award winners, who have set high expectations of excellence for their staff and themselves.  A few of this year's recipients are being recognized for the first time and their hard work and dedication have finally paid off.

MCCS nonappropriated fund food and hospitality activities such as snackbars, direct operated fast food outlets, clubs, restaurants, mobile canteens, temporary lodging facilities, and recreational lodging are eligible for the award. To be eligible for the award, individual food and hospitality activities must have operated for the entire past fiscal year, they must at least break even, and must show significant gains in customer service, financial performance, human resources, and operations. Each activity is evaluated against criteria of excellence established by the Food and Hospitality Operations Branch staff.  A panel from the Personal and Family Readiness Division, MCCS"s headquarters organization, individually evaluates and judges each of the nominations against the award criteria.
