Pedestal Foods Expands To Chattanooga With Addition Of Notre Dame High School

Monday, August 28, 2017
Pedestal Foods announced a new food service partnership with Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga. The addition is the company’s first client in the city following clients in Nashville, Knoxville and St. Louis. 

Notre Dame tasked Pedestal Foods with overhauling their entire student dining area. Pedestal Foods developed a new layout for the space and installed updated meal stations showcasing some of Pedestal Food’s proprietary brands such as The Grill Spot, WonderWorks, Comfort Kitchen and Delizioso. 

“We are thrilled to be breaking into the Chattanooga market with such a reputable and prestigious school,” said Joe Scherer, senior director of sales and operations at Pedestal Foods.
“We have enjoyed working closely with the administration at Notre Dame to bring several of our original concepts to the school.”


George Valadie, president of Notre Dame High School, said the renovated dining area will provide students and faculty with more varied meal options and establish faster ways to get diners through the lines and on to enjoying their meal. 

“Our students work hard each day, and we wanted to provide them with high quality, nutritious meals that will keep them going into the afternoon and beyond,” he said. “Pedestal Foods’ dedication to tailoring our dining program to fit the needs of our students was a key factor in our hiring decision.” 

The new dining arrangements opened at Notre Dame High School on Aug. 10. 

Pedestal Foods is an on-site dining services company serving clients in the spaces of K-12 foodservice and on-campus dining for universities and colleges. The company, which was founded in 2001 and has original roots in higher education, offers programs that are uniquely customized for the needs of each facility in which they serve.
