One Hospitality Family

The largest minority-owned Food service company in the U.S., Thompson Hospitality is also one of the Nation’s largest retail food and facilities companies. We are a Family-owned organization, built on lessons learned from more than 29 years of client, customer and community relationships, as well as values passed down from previous generations of the Thompson family.

Thompson Hospitality Dining Services is the leading provider to America’s HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) and other top universities.  It is our commitment to partner with our campus communities to ensure that the history, legacy and pride of these vital institutions remain intact for generations to come.

Restaurant and retail ownership has been a passion of ours from the very beginning, when Warren Thompson purchased 31 Bob’s Big Boys in 1992.  Today, Thompson Hospitality owns and operates a variety of restaurant brands and concepts. Regardless of segment, our goal is to always bring our customers the brightest retail and restaurant concepts with our own unique style of hospitality and guest focus.

In 1997, Thompson Hospitality and Compass Group formed a strategic partnership to better meet customers’ and clients’ long-term needs. Today, the Compass/Thompson Hospitality partnership delivers the highest-quality food and facilities management services, along with a Supplier Diversity solution, to more than 150 clients in 48 states and 6 countries.  Our partnership has leveraged both the resources of the World’s largest food service and facilities management provider in Compass, coupled with the resources of a mid-sized, entrepreneurial, minority-owned company, committed to serving clients across the industry.

Thompson Hospitality is a proud citizen of the communities that we are privileged to serve, and we demonstrate both our commitment and our gratitude by giving back to our communities. The Company empowers and supports our associates in volunteering at homeless shelters, conducting backpack drives in schools, and mentoring and helping develop high school students in opportunity zones. On a corporate philanthropy level, we sponsor local fundraising initiatives and contribute substantially to HBCUs and their students.

“Giving Back” isn’t just a catch phrase at Thompson Hospitality…we work tirelessly to help our neighbors.
