Client Testimonials

"I think what makes Envision Strategies most unique - in addition to the firm's deep food service knowledge across industries, approachable style with everyone on campus, and willingness to customize their approach rather than offer canned solutions – is stylistic. They are curious, approachable, likeable, and knowledgeable; I have almost no risk when I hire Envision Strategies because they are trusted by and trustworthy with anyone I ask them to meet, they are smart and informed, and I know solutions will be co-created with us and immediately implementable.”
