Our company

Dana Hospitality is proudly Canadian with a culture rooted in culinary excellence. We operate in the larger public and institutional sectors where clients and consumers appreciate the benefits of our healthy, fresh, on-site culinary culture, and where there is a benefit to operating with a strong union partner.

We specialize in preparing meals from scratch for private schools, universities and colleges, retail, healthcare, resort, leisure and recreation venues and corporations of all sizes. We are an authentic Canadian alternative to the international food service conglomerates and self-operation.

Our business arrangements are for on-site corporate food service programs, retail-style cafés, education residence dining and student meal plans, catering services scaled to every size event, national branded franchise operations and facility design, capital planning and project management.
