To serve our customers delicious, authentic food made from high-quality local and sustainable ingredients while growing a healthy values-driven business.
1 – Ingredients
Delicious food begins with great ingredients produced locally, sustainably and with consideration of environmental and human health. That means we featured produce grown on family farms in our region and only serve humanely raised meats that are 100% antibiotic-free from producers who meet our exacting standards. We bake everything from scratch using locally and regionally grown grains and real butter. At Grand Central we believe you can taste integrity.
2 – People
Delicious food and great service requires skilled and passionate employees. Our people are hired for their passion, paid a living wage and provided with health and retirement benefits. Great work is the result of a great work environment; our bakeries and kitchens are places where teamwork is celebrated, talent is recognized and hard work is rewarded.
