Founded in 1960, AVI Foodsystems has evolved into one of the most respected and trusted food service companies in the nation. Providing comprehensive food services with a focus on the highest quality and freshest ingredients, impeccable service and total value is the reputation we have earned and live up to every day.
We serve thousands of clients and millions of customers daily through our contemporary cafés, restaurant concepts, resident dining programs, innovative micro markets, state-of-the-art vending, premier catering services, superior concession venues and exclusive beverage and coffee systems.
Our commitment extends far beyond food … AVI believes in family values, developing our team members, encouraging healthy lifestyles, giving back to our communities and supporting diversity in any way possible.
The success of AVI is built upon family values and tradition. From modest means, AVI has grown into the largest independently owned food service company in the United States by exceeding the expectations of our customers. Today, AVI is still a family company dedicated to serving our customers with the same personal relationships and integrity as we did nearly 60 years ago. Our unprecedented growth and account retention reflect the devotion to our core values; excellence and relationships.
Our team members are at the forefront of the commitment we make to each customer. They are empowered to serve our guests with the most innovative and creative food services. As we expand to new markets, we provide exceptional opportunities for team members to evolve and progress throughout the company.
To appreciate the culture and success of AVI, one must truly come to know and understand our visionary founder, John Payiavlas.
