Covid-19 Preventative Measures

To all our Best Fed Greeks,
We have been monitoring this evolving situation closely over the last few weeks. The safety of the people we feed and work with is our top priority. For this reason, we are implementing strict safety protocols in all of our kitchens that will continue serving food. The goal is to remain proactive and help limit the spread of COVID-19. Below, you will find the changes that we will be enacting effective immediately. We feel these changes will allow us to continue to feed you quality food in the safest way possible.

Packaged & Pre-Plated Meals

  • All meals will be served pre-plated or packaged in togo containers with single use utensils and napkins. Think of it as an awesome take-out, but prepared on site!
    • Meals will be packaged and set out at a designated time and location in each house.
    • Pre-plated meals will be served through a window on request.
  • Drink options will be in individual bottles.
  • Most importantly, the quality of meals will not change.

Food Safety Measures

  • No one other than kitchen staff is allowed in kitchen at any time
    • Our staff is Servsafe certified and in order for us to prepare safe food, we cannot allow any students to enter the kitchen
  • We will be implementing strenuous cautionary measures that ensure the food being cooked is safe to eat. These include but are not limited to:
    • Not shopping at local grocery stores, unless absolutely necessary
    • All food deliveries will be dropped at the back door for us to put away, no vendors will be allowed in kitchens
    • Sanitizing meal drop locations before and after serving each meal
  • We will be enhancing our kitchen cleaning measures beyond the CDC and EPA recommendations:
    • Sanitizing every surface in the kitchen multiple times throughout the day
    • We will continue to utilize medical grade gloves in all of our operations, changing them after contacting non food related items and washing/sanitizing our hands between changing gloves
  • We are adopting a company policy that encourages social distancing
    • Our staff has committed to not engage in social gatherings outside of work
    • We will maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet from co-workers, vendors, customers at all times
  • Self Quarantine if exhibiting symptoms or have been in contact with individuals who are or may have been exposed to COVID-19

These changes are all based on Local, State, Federal and International recommendations to help slow transmission of COVID-19. I understand that these changes are neither desirable nor convenient for any party, however we feel public safety is of more importance and will do everything in our power to make this as fluid a transition as possible.

Keep Yourself Safe
Recommendations from the CDC and WHO

  • Social Distancing
    • Keep 6 - 12 feet distance between yourself and others at all times
    • Do not attend gatherings or visit public areas such as bars, venues, restaurants & stores.
Here is a link from the CDC of simple preventative measures you can take to keep yourself safe.

Limit The Spread Of Germs And Prevent Infection
The Red Cross recommends following common sense steps to help prevent the spread of any respiratory virus.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; throw used tissues in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets and countertops.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them - use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick. You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause but assure you that we are taking these measures to protect everyone. We look forward to the opportunity to feed all of you under more desirable conditions again. Until then, please take all necessary precautions to protect yourself and others. This is only temporary and we, as a community and nation, will overcome it. As with all other national crises we have faced, we are resilient and will emerge stronger and more prepared in the future.

With Care

The Best Fed Origins

Seven years ago, Owner and Operator, Ryan Shaughnessy, conceived the Best Fed idea when he took over as the chef at a Greek house in Lawrence, Kansas. Having spent nearly 15 years in every aspect of the restaurant industry, and with new additions to his family, this idea was the exact solution he needed to balance his passion for food and his family life. Best Fed Greeks was born three years later out of a desire to share the food and quality of life with his foodie family.

The BFG Formula

Treat others the way you want to be treated!

This applies to all aspects of our operation. When Ryan started this company, he wanted to create an environment that he would be proud to work in and that others would take pride in themselves. Company benefits were rolled out as fast as possible in order to attract the absolute best chefs in the industry. This mindset of valuing our Best Fed Family is still going strong, as we are always adding new benefits to our chapters’ and chefs’ lives.

Feed others the way you want to be fed!

Food is important to Ryan, very important. It’s important to all of us. The reason that we started offering such competitive incentives, so early on, is because we want to provide the absolute best food and service to our members. We cook from scratch and use the best ingredients possible. We also spent time creating an instant feedback loop with our Chapter members so that we can build menus to meet their desires. With our mobile application, you can communicate directly with the chef to make meal requests, rate meals, request late plates, set up dietary restrictions (yep, we cover those), view menus, and much more.

“By building these systems, we are able to ensure that every chapter and chef are as happy as I was when I first fell in love with this career. I can’t wait to share what we have built with you! We look forward to welcoming you to the BEST FED FAMILY!”

Five Star Service Rating
  • Chef Ryan served amazing meals during my time in a fraternity. Him and his assistants were always in a great mood and were always friendly. Highly recommend.

    Chad Johnson

  • I've had Best Fed Greeks for 3 years and Jordan is the best! His food is amazing and my guys love it. Our dining room was always packed and he knew what to prepare to keep them happy.  He also has a food truck that we have hired for events and has always been accommodating even when I have to do things last minute.

    Bambi Shanks

  • I ate this food for four years and of course I didn't absolutely love EVERY meal, but the quality consistency our chefs put out through all that time was phenomenal. The staff was always absolutely a breeze to work with, always being positive, flexible, and on their toes. After working with the company I realized the quality went on throughout more than the kitchen. Ryan and the rest of the crew treat each other just as well as their clients, which many other companies can't say, and it shows. Competitive pricing while catering to our exact (and picky) needs was just icing on the cake.

  • Chef Jordan is one of a kind! You can't find a better cook out there, but he's also just an awesome guy and is someone you want to get to know better. Everyday Best Fed Greek brings good food and a smile to my fraternity. 5 Star

  • Chef Ryan, always made an awesome meal, and could do it from almost any ingredients. He was always quick, funny, and made it more than a meal.  I would recommend him to cook for anyone.

    Hugh Woodworth

  • Can't always please everyone, but Chef Ryan and co always kept if fresh with great new meals constantly added to the rotation. Very engaging and receptive of feedback on the meals served, going so far as to set up a small committee that collected and aggregated opinions of the whole house. Can't ask for much more than that!

    Tim Svoboda

  • Would definitely recommend these guys!  Always willing to go the extra mile to make quality food. Very polite and easy to work with as well.

    Trevor Clark

  • Chef Ryan was my house chef for 4 years and in that time always made it a point to connect with every single member of the house. As someone with a dietary restriction, Chef Ryan always had an alternative meal saved for me when needed, even with 70 other guys to feed. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new chef for their Greek house. They went above and beyond by engaging with the Fraternity to seek out the food that we wanted so our experience was the best it could be!
