MCCS RECOGNIZES FOOD AND HOSPITALITY ACTIVITIES FOR 2014
We’re proud to announce that five MCAS Cherry Point food services have been recognized for excellence, with the Library Café taking the prestigious top award! Other winners include New City Deli, Crow’s Nest Café, Snack-A-Tach and Mayberry Cafe.
The Food and Hospitality Excellence Award Program was established by MCCS Headquarters to recognize food and hospitality activities that exceed the highest level standards of excellence. These awards allow 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.
Activity of the Year Award
The Library Café stood out among all others in the Marine Corps and was awarded the “2014 Food and Beverage Activity of the Year.” The Café serves Starbucks® coffee and offers delicious breakfast and lunch fare. The Library Café was recognized for its excellent customer service, effective management and overall high quality of product and service. The café beat out 66 other nominations from U.S. Marine Corps bases worldwide.
