Our Story

Serving the Texas Hill Country and surrounding areas. 

Our Texans roots reach all the way back to 1975 when Foundation Foods’ parent company, HHS, was founded in Austin. In the 43 years since then, HHS has expanded internationally, providing a variety of best-in-class culinary, housekeeping, facilities, linen, and transportation management services, and technology tools for aviation, healthcare, resorts, and senior living providers throughout the United States and South America. 

In 2012, HHS introduced culinary as part of our growing service lines, keeping the goal simple—enrich the dining experience by providing the freshest, highest quality ingredients with a hospitality-driven approach. Our special focus on building partnership, experiences, and stewardship has led us to being named one of the top rated food management contract companies six years in a row by Food Management and has allowed us to expand our culinary services to over 100 locations.

As we continue to grow and establish our new corporate home in Dripping Springs, it’s important to us that we continue to connect with and support our local community. That’s why we decided to bring the same level of fresh, quality food that we offer our partners to you—our neighbors in the Texas Hill Country and greater Austin area—by creating our subsidiary, Foundation Foods.

At Foundation Foods we promise that we’ll take care of your business and family just like we take care of ours. We are here to provide you with memorable dining experiences and fresh, inventive food options, whether that be through catering your event or serving you at the farmer’s market. We are excited to serve our community and your culinary needs!  

Executive Chef Greg Thornton

Born and raised in Texas, Greg Thornton’s fascination with culinary began at an early age. Serving as the family sous chef alongside his mother and grandmother from the time he could hold a spoon, he knew that his career path would always involve cooking.
Greg began his culinary education at Le Cordon Bleu in Austin, Texas shortly after he earned his bachelor of science from Texas State University in 2010. Starting his career as a line cook, he then went on to open both Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden and Top Golf as a sous chef. Later in his career he was introduced into the world of catering, serving as the event chef at Royal Fig Catering, reinforcing his passion for hospitality. Greg believes that food brings people together and the best conversations happen around the dinner table. He is thrilled to bring his extensive knowledge and skills to Foundation Foods and serve the greater Dripping Springs area.
