About Lackmann Culinary Services

History of Lackmann

Lackmann Culinary Services was founded in 1966 by Thomas F. Lackmann. A leader, mentor, and visionary, Thomas Lackmann was committed to the gift of hospitality, providing quality food for each and every guest, and the belief in continuous improvement. As he would say, "When you’re green, you grow."

The Company was started with 10 team members over 40 years ago and today has over 2,000 team members and over 100 dining operations along the East Coast, under the management of the founder’s sons, co-chairmen Andrew and Matthew Lackmann.

Our philosophy and core values, which are instilled through leadership, focus on hospitality, culinary excellence, guest satisfaction, doing one’s best, partnerships, and social responsibility.

"The only constant is change." - Heraclitus
