Community Service

We continue the Vanderbilt tradition of giving back and helping others by supporting our community’s economic growth, and by supporting organizations that assist people in our community with hunger, heating, and housing needs.

We Strive to Be Good Environmental Stewards

Our field-to-table, field-to-fryer-to-fuel, cork recycling, and solar panel programs are just a few ways we’re committed to preserving and protecting the land. The recognition we receive for our sustainability efforts (which most recently includes the 2015 WNC Clean Air Excellence Award), reinforces our commitment to sustainability which began more than a century ago.

We Promote a Healthy Work-Life Balance

The well-being of our employees and their families has always been a hallmark of our company and is paramount to the success of our service expectations. We encourage personal and professional growth, a family atmosphere, and life-long learning opportunities through reward programs and perks. See all employee benefits.
