We created Simply Delicious by Hallmark, a full service catering company in Columbus, OH, in 2008. As that business grew along with our managed services, it was time to find a larger facility. In 2015 we moved our corporate headquarters to downtown Columbus, Ohio. The new facility houses the Corporate Offices, Executive team and also a state of the art Production and Culinary Center.
With ample room for expansion and continued development, our entire team is poised and ready to take Hallmark to new heights for our clients. We are seizing the opportunity to bring past experiences, historical reputation, and fresh thinking together into a dynamic food service partner.
Bryan and Tom have worked hard to establish a set of core values that define our organization. They are values we look for in recruiting new employees and embody the service that we deliver.
Honest – We believe that our relationships are the foundation for providing our clients with outstanding services. Honesty therefore is a cornerstone value for us because we believe that relationship must be built on trust. Honesty involves not only telling the truth but not holding back as well and following through with the promises we make.
Hardworking – Doing whatever it takes and taking initiative to exceed expectations. Our team is hardworking every day, and it shines through with the pride we take in our work. Our team will not be out-worked.
Hospitable – Hospitality is central to the services we provide. We focus on embodying a spirit of hospitality on all that we do, by displaying a warm smile and putting out the welcome mat to our guests. Our hospitality extends beyond the workplace to the contributions our team makes to their communities.
Hungry – Hunger not only is associated with what we satisfy with our services, but also represents the passion our team has to grow and constantly improve. We enthusiastically seek ways to help others and be part of the solution.
The best way for you to see the difference is to have us show you who we are. We would be honored to have the opportunity to learn more about your organization and share how we can help you meet your goals.
