Dartcor Secures Contract with Suburban Propane to Upgrade Company’s Corporate Dining Experience

Leading corporate dining services provider to deliver a comprehensive new program to engage and inspire employees while fueling corporate culture


WHIPPANY, N.J. (June 24, 2021) – Dartcor, the tri-state area’s leading provider of premier corporate dining services, has been selected as the corporate dining services provider for Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. (NYSE:SPH), a nationwide distributor of propane, renewable propane, fuel oil, and related products and services, as well as a marketer of natural gas and electricity and investor in low carbon fuel alternatives. With a shared commitment to protecting the environment, the Dartcor partnership advances Suburban Propane’s Go Green Initiative to serve today’s communities while leading the way to a sustainable tomorrow.

With over 35 years of combined experience in the hospitality, food and beverage, and corporate dining industries, Dartcor’s executive team leverages its expertise and the latest technologies to elevate the traditional corporate dining experience and deliver tangible results for clients and their employees. Dartcor will assume responsibility for corporate dining services at Suburban Propane’s Whippany, N.J. Central Support office, providing a complete transformation of the company’s café, menus, and on-site culinary experience.


Dartcor and its team of culinary experts were chosen to build a curated corporate dining program to bring a one-of-a-kind, custom dining experience directly to Suburban Propane’s employees. Dartcor will leverage its expertise in elevating traditional corporate dining to execute a complete transformation of Suburban Propane’s current dining operations. Through the partnership, Dartcor will provide a customized menu comprised of locally sourced, high-quality ingredients while advising Suburban Propane on the remodeling of their cafeteria to enhance the dining experience at its headquarters located in Whippany, N.J.

“As of late, more organizations are realizing the power food has to fuel organizational well-being and enhance the engagement and motivation of employees,” said Jason Leeds, Director of Innovation for Dartcor Food Services. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Suburban Propane for these exact reasons and are confident that the café remodel paired with a curated dining program designed specifically with their staff in mind will undoubtedly generate buzz amongst their employees and give them a healthy lunch to be excited about.”


Recognizing that their onsite café had become underutilized in recent years, Suburban Propane sought to reharness the untapped potential of their corporate dining program. Dartcor’s solutions focus on fostering greater employee satisfaction, participation, and productivity, making them an ideal partner to oversee the creation of Suburban Propane’s brand-new, contemporary, and inviting cafeteria which is scheduled for completion by the end of the year. With Dartcor involved in the new café’s configuration, menu, and personnel, Suburban Propane is confident they will increase employee engagement, bolster morale and enhance their corporate culture, leaving a positive impact on the health and well-being of the Central Support team.


While construction on the updated café is underway, Dartcor will host several special events to engage Suburban Propane’s employees, introduce them to the new corporate dining experience and help bring them together as they return to a post-pandemic working environment. This will include various company-sponsored events featuring creative, high-quality, healthy food. Additionally, Dartcor’s fresh, locally sourced ingredients create new opportunities for Suburban Propane to lower its carbon footprint through recycling, furthering the company’s Go Green initiative.

“Our cafeteria was not getting the attention it deserved for years, but we knew it had potential to bring our employees together,” explained Daniel Bloomstein, VP and Controller of Suburban Propane. “We first approached Dartcor for advice, but after lengthy conversations with multiple players in the industry, soon realized that they were the ideal partner to deliver the customized, gourmet food services we were searching for. This is an investment in the well-being of our employees, and we are incredibly proud and excited to welcome Dartcor to the Suburban Propane family.”


Suburban Propane is the latest company to join the impressive roster of nearly 50,000 guests Dartcor serves throughout the tri-state area. Dartcor is led by CEO Warren Leeds, who founded the company in 1985 after recognizing the corporate dining experience had not evolved nor kept pace with other changes in the workplace. Taking note of the major discrepancies between traditional corporate dining and the technologies used in the restaurant industry, Warren and his staff help a team of executive chefs create custom meals with the intent of increasing the connection, engagement, and well-being of organizations.
