“Cooking with love provides food for the soul” – Valerie McKeehan

Expertly preparing and serving a delicious meal at home is a remarkable skill. However, applying that same skill to serving dozens of people while maintaining the same quality and consistency is rare.

Whether you are new to the culinary arts or are a seasoned professional, a career with Benton House offers some unique but highly valued benefits.

Be Creative/Grow Your Skills

People are often surprised to learn we serve over 1.5 million meals a year in our communities. And our menus are more varied and specialized than even the most adventurous restaurant.

Add our regular happy hours and special events, toss in larger parties and catering opportunities, and you have enough challenges to pique the interest of even the most demanding chef.

Cook with Passion and Purpose

Our residents dine with us daily, in fact, multiple times a day. And your meals are often the most anticipated (and most appreciated) moments of their day.

Beyond the joy of cooking is the knowledge your work is also critical. Your meals offer opportunities for residents to improve health, maintain fitness, and create connections. In addition, your culinary creations save lives and promote joy daily.

Have Work/Life Balance

Few opportunities in food service can compete with Benton House regarding work/life balance.

“Home by 2” at our company means 2 p.m., not 2 a.m. And regardless of the start time, you can say “Home by 8.” Team members cite the ability to see and spend more time with family as a prime reason for choosing Benton House.
