Look Who’s Talking.
The best sources to document Pioneer’s ability to deliver on promised services are our clients.
It gives me great pleasure to offer a word of testimony about the long and positive partnership between Pioneer College Caterers and Indiana Wesleyan University. For many years Pioneer has faithfully supplied a crucially important component of the excellent campus life we seek to provide for our students. They provide good food in a clean and enjoyable environment. They actively seek feedback from our students, using that feedback to regularly update their menus and services. Above all, their people are service-oriented, committed to excellence, and always conduct themselves as friendly professional partners in the often intense and demanding work of our residential university campus. I highly recommend Pioneer to fellow university leaders.

University of Cumberlands is proud to partner with Pioneer College Caterers for our foodservice needs. Pioneer helped increase the food offerings to our campus community while also providing a higher quality product to our students. The collection of these improvements has resulted in a greater student satisfaction. As our campus food needs have evolved, Pioneer has worked quickly and efficiently to find unique solutions to those needs. The pioneer team is staffed with honorable, hardworking professionals that operate with a service mindset.
Larry L. Cockrum, President – University of the Cumberlands (1/8/21)
I consider it a privilege to endorse Pioneer College Caterers and their strong commitment to serving our students and the entire campus community. I really appreciate the spirit of cooperation between the on-campus staff and university personnel. They have a “can do” attitude and are very accommodating to our requests. The involvement of their corporate office is also very impressive and further expresses their level of commitment to serving our needs.
Rusty Hollingsworth, Vice President for Athletics and Student Services – Campbellsville University (1/7/21)
One of the key areas of student satisfaction is, of course, a quality meal program. If you are considering partnering with someone to provide for your food service needs, I would suggest you consider Pioneer in that conversation. While I’ve found them to be affordable, I am pleased with our partnership for several reasons beyond price. I regularly eat in the cafeteria and have found the food to be of high quality. They meet every year with selected students to ask specifically about food choices and the quality of food. I’ve found them to be very responsive to their requests. I appreciate the professional service that I receive from everyone associated with the organization.
Terry Allcorn, Ph.D., President – Kentucky Christian University (1/7/21)
Pioneer College Caterers has relieved me of one of the two normative never-ending complaints from campus constituencies, redundant unpleasant food in food services. In fact, there is broad-based expression of strong satisfaction. My more direct experience has been the company’s catering services which have always been first-class. Equally important, they have kept in place an onsite manager who understands and responds well to the parochial characteristics of the campus community. I am comfortable recommending Pioneer without reservations.

Pioneer has been a valued and trusted partner for many years. Our students, faculty, staff, and guests enjoy great food and thoughtful, personal service. The staff is professional, caring, and genuinely committed to providing great service.
Dr. Bill Greer – President – Milligan University (2020)
Pioneer achieves much more than mere food service for us. They become part of our team, members of our community, and even “adjunct family.” Great food always evokes a feeling of family, and like favorite uncles, corporate officers show up not just in times of trouble, but also in our high moments of celebration. We can’t imagine trusting something as important as our food service to a less personable company.
Dr. Joseph Castleberry – President – Northwest University
Pioneer has been providing our food service needs for 15 years. The quality of service is unparalleled. We receive excellent food and services for our students and outstanding client care. This is a company that solicits and responds to feedback in a timely and consistent fashion. They are part of our University and bring a positive contribution to campus life. Our students appreciate Pioneer and enjoy a good relationship with the management staff on campus. I have worked with very few companies who work so hard and listen so well to our needs, goals, and ideas. The dining commons under Pioneer’s leadership has become an integral part of campus life. I can offer no higher praise for the Pioneer College Caterers.
Dr. Todd J. Williams – President – Cairn University
Pioneer has always met our expectations. Perhaps what is most notable is that Pioneer has never rested on its laurels, but is always eager to improve its quality of service. Pioneer is responsive to the needs of our 442 students and is flexible in its approach. When a new challenge arises, Pioneer is quick to ask, “What can we do to meet this challenge?” Pioneer continues to do all the little things right which makes for an enjoyable dining experience. LPS engages the service of Pioneer not only for our students, but for every large and small event held on our campus, confident that both the offering and the service will be excellent.
Rev. Matt Crass – President – Luther Preparatory School
Cedarville University is honored to partner with Pioneer College Caterers. I consider it a partnership because of the way they strive to serve our students with excellence, and the value they place on the relationship with the administration. We work together to provide a great experience for our campus community, and I recommend Pioneer without reservation.
