Taste’s success depends on our people. Our restaurants can only prosper and provide opportunities for employment, growth, and support in our community when we continually improve ourselves, and the work we do. We recognize, however, that success is not measured by sales, guest counts, and numbers alone. We are measured as much by the way in which we achieve our goals, as we are by the actual achievements themselves. We believe that a commitment to uncompromising values and integrity should always guide our decisions and actions as we pursue our goals. Following are the core values that form the foundation of the measurement of success for Taste Restaurants:
Excellence: From polishing cutlery to the preparation of each and every dish to the final goodbye at the end of service, nothing should be done without the highest standard of service being achieved. How we do anything is how we do everything.
Integrity: We believe every interaction and transaction – how we treat each other and our guests, how we source our product, what we do with our waste – is made with integrity that creates trust, safety, and transparency.
Fun: While we take service seriously, we refuse to take ourselves too seriously. We want the fun our staff are having while at work to infect every seat in the restaurant and make the environment memorable and irresistible.
Local: We take great pride in the relationship we have with our local suppliers and producers. We strive to honor and showcase their contributions, and engage in the communities where we operate by building connections and partnerships with our neighbors.
Sustainable: We know our businesses are a reflection of the environment around them, so we work hard to reduce our footprint and intentionally and thoughtfully make decisions with a long view in mind, being mindful of the resources we use.
Servanthood: With humility, teachability and graciousness, we serve each other, our guests, and our community. We believe we are at our best when we are giving ourselves to others.
Collaboration: Each and every team member brings something unique to the table, and we believe each person should have a voice and a role in creating and carrying out the vision.
Passion: Enthusiasm, innovation, and inspiration are what drive us and challenge us to do better each and every day.
