Q. Does Sapphire at School serve just private and charter schools?
A. No. Our programs are available to private, public and government funded schools.
Q. Does Sapphire at School go through health inspections?
A. Yes, just as any provider of food service to the public does. We're proud to have received the Award of Excellence from the Orange County Health Authority.
Q. What if we don't have a school kitchen?
A. Sapphire at School has a 5,000 square foot, state-of-the-art food prep kitchen where we cook daily for schools that don't have a kitchen on-site. We deliver the food we cook there to schools in our temperature-controlled food trucks, so that the meals you've ordered, whether hot or cold, arrive at just the right temperature.
Q. Do you deliver breakfast and lunch at the same time?
A. No. We deliver breakfast early in the morning and lunch early in the afternoon, right before they're scheduled to be served, so that the food is as fresh as possible.
Q. If we decide to put a kitchen in, can you help us design it?
A. Yes. We will be more than happy to consult on your kitchen design. We're fully familiar with the items and designs necessary to meet legal and health requirements, and we can even help you staff your kitchen once it's built.
Q. Will you cater a school event even if the school is not contracted with Sapphire at School?
A. Yes. Although we would love to handle all your school needs, we don't have to serve regular school meals in order to provide special, top-quality catering.
Q. Our school doesn't have a lot of money to spend on meal programs. Do you work with schools on a tight budget?
A. Yes. We can tailor our program to work with any school and any budget, and still provide fresh, delicious, wholesome meals that will both surprise you and delight your students.
Q. Do you have minimum order quantities?
A. Yes, we do, but they vary from school to school. We calculate them after we customize your program to suit your budget.
Q. Can parents order directly from you and have you deliver meals to their child's school?
A. We're sorry, but no. There are several laws and regulations in place that prevent this. We are required to have a contract with the school before we can deliver meals there.
Q. How large is your staff?
A. We have more than 90 employees overall, and more than 25 who work exclusively for Sapphire at School.
