MCCS Recognizes Food and Hospitality Activity Excellence


Release Date: 7/29/2011

HQMC (MR), QUANTICO, Va. — The Food and Hospitality Excellence Award Program was established by Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) to recognize those food and hospitality activities that exceeded the highest level of standards of excellence. These awards give the opportunity for any MCCS club, restaurant, snack bar, or lodging facility, regardless of size or location, to measure their results against criteria in pre-established categories of customer service, financial performance, human resources, and operations.

This year MCCS awarded 29 facilities for their exceptional results from FY10. The managers and staffs of these activities have gone beyond the values, principles, and core competencies of the MCCS organization. They understand and continue to accomplish the MCCS primary mission of taking care of Marines and their families by thinking outside the box to build programs that continually exceed guests’ expectations. As a result of their efforts the activities have received an abundance of positive and personalized guest comments. Their emphasis on training yielded significant results in employee development and in outstanding operational management of MCCS facilities. It is this kind of commitment that distinguishes this year’s Food and Hospitality Excellence Award winners.For more information about the Food and Hospitality Excellence Award Program contact Ric Pomeroy, Branch Head – Food and Hospitality, at 703-784-3811 or pomeroyk@usmc-mccs.org.
