Customer, Athlete, and Business Partner Referrals
The Main Dish has the home away from home environment. Since my first time through the doors I've been so impressed with the hospitality that Jason & the rest of the staff provide, always making you feel welcome & comfortable. As an Olympic athlete the fuel we put in our bodies is an integral part of the program. I along with our federation have trusted the Main Dish to provide clean healthy meals as we strive to be our absolute best when we step on the starting line as we represent Canada. Thank you Main Dish, for believing in my quest the past 4 years & I look forward to our partnership as we look towards Sochi 2014!
The Calgary Stampeder Football Club has engaged the services of THE MAIN DISH for our training camp meals and special events for the past (four) years. With the guidance of their remarkable staff we have been able to provide highly nutritious meals, with good variety of choice and rave reviews by our players and staff. This company's ability to provide onsite meal service in less than adequate facilities is a testament to their staff. I would highly recommend THE MAIN DISH for any catering needs.
As an athlete, the Main Dish has not only been an amazing source of delicious meals (that are healthy and nutrient rich for training) but it has been a place where I always feel unbelievably welcome! Time and time again, they have gone out of their way to help and encourage me throughout my journey to the Olympics....even hand delivering meals to my house after two shoulder surgeries. They are incredibly genuine, generous and kind and I am very proud to have been a Main Dish sponsored athlete."
Calgary has been my home for the past 7 seasons as a member of the US National Bobsled Team. Heading into the 2010 Olympic Games there was not one place, in Canada or the US, that felt more like home than The Main Dish. Post training meals were a 3 or 4 day per week occasion and the night I arrived home to Calgary from Vancouver after winning the first Gold Medal for my country in 4-man bobsleigh in 62 years, my friends that picked me up from the airport took me straight to The Main Dish to celebrate with friends and staff alike. The atmosphere and positive environment provided by the staff lends itself to a healthy lifestyle and I can not thank 'The Dish' enough for their continued support. Thank you!
I am happy to see that you are expanding because I have been nothing but a happy (and healthy) customer since the first time a friend and I wandered into "The Dish" one late Saturday evening and had a 'blast" choosing some food for takeout. Wow! Ever since I have been back many times and some of my favorites have included the broccoli salad, the beets, mashed potatoes, and butter chicken. It is so healthy and tasty! The menu changes are always great and seem to be something I love as well such as the Shepherd's Pie---I don't have time or longing to cook it but I do love to eat it! You have a staunch supporter in me and I wish you nothing but the best!
