What our clients are saying…

“I want to thank you for assisting us with staffing our open Deli Cook position while we search for the right candidate. Jon Pearson and Mike who filled in most of the time were the right fit for our staff and operation.

I find the Snapchef website easy to use when placing orders especially being able to request particular staff like Jon and Mike. The site is user friendly. I like how I can confirm hours worked with breaks and give a quick rating or feedback of each staff member if I choose.

Again, thank you for helping us with our staffing needs with qualified individuals and your quick response when needed. You have been a pleasure to work with throughout the year.”

Ben Miller, Compass
“As the director of culinary operations for Roger Williams University, I find using the Portal and Snap app to be efficient and useful. Once I became familiar with the platforms, it made scheduling and adding in any special requests simple. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the Snapchef office especially with Arwen Robitaille. I always felt confident with reaching out to the office for any questions that I may have had. The response time is on point and consistent, which is key when running a larger operation.”
Jonathan Cambra, Roger Williams University
“Using the Snapchef Portal has made ordering, managing and planning our temporary labor use by and far way easier than prior experiences with other temp services. Arwen, Mohammed and Cherise are quick to respond to any issues we may have throughout the entire process. Arwen is quick to resolve last minute requests and without fail almost always has someone to fill in last minute. If there are issues with specific employees they are quick to correct any issues and ensure that it does not happen again. All in all the whole process is made extremely easy from start to finish.”
Holly Brennan, Stonehill College, Sodexo
“Snapchef has become an invaluable partner here at Brightview Commons, helping to ensure that our dining services department fully exceeds our residents expectations. The Snapchef portal and app have made scheduling very easy, as our needs are constantly changing and fluctuating. The office team is always available to answer questions and is very helpful. Arwen Robitaille, Operations Manager for Rhode Island, has exceptional communication skills and is always within in reach.”
Max Manning, Brightview Commons
