Within five years he was promoted to Vice-President of Food Service. 
When Five Star Correctional Services was preparing to open its doors in 2002, Bob was very specifically sought out because of his extensive food service background to set up and oversee the Food Service division. He left Mid-States to become Vice-President, and has been a cornerstone of Five Star’s rapid success in the correctional foodservice industry. Although Bob is now the CEO of Five Star, his hands-on approach to customer service is what sets him apart from other executives in the business. He is never more than a phone call away because his philosophy has always been to make sure the customers know they have someone they can count on to provide the very best service available.
