Our History

Food Service Consultants was founded in 1985, by Dave and Sue Phillips. Starting with sixteen (16) private schools, the company now serves over seventy (70) accounts in Missouri and Illinois. While we appreciate the many long term relationships that we have been able to establish over the years, we are especially proud of the fact that we still serve those same original sixteen (16) schools today. Food service was a way of life for Dave Phillips. He personally believed that the success of the company was due to the wonderful, dedicated and hard working people that he employed. Without them and the company motto “Serving You With Pride”, we would not be the company we are today.

In 2003, Dave approached Michael Kumpf about taking over as president and owner of the company. It was imperative to Dave that Food Service Consultants remained a locally-owned company. He was concerned that some large out-of-town corporation would simply not treat our clients and employees with the same respect and loyal commitment. Robynne Backs, Dave’s daughter who has been with the company since day one, has been promoted to vice president and will be helping us to move forward. 2010 marks our 25th anniversary and we look forward to serving you in the future.
