Michael’s Gourmet Food Services was started for many reasons. As we worked alongside countless talented individuals with a huge passion for food service we realized that there were too many gaps in knowledge between schools, business models and franchise concepts. Watching many of these businesses fail was disheartening. Restaurant failures range from 65 to 75 percent, primarily due to lack of managerial experience, poor hiring and training methods, nonexistent standardized operating procedures and inadequate or poorly planned business models. It may look easy based on the number of food service establishments you see in the community, but the hours are truly endless and operational set up - exhausting. The question then becomes how much money is wasted on mistakes and ultimately how much money are you making on the dollar? There are so many variable obstacles to bring the company to the 5 year level. It doesn’t have to be that way!

At Michael’s Gourmet Food Services we strive to make sure that your business is successful from the beginning. Our core consulting principle revolves around the dissemination of information. This is one of our company’s greatest assets. At MGFS our company is founded on the principles that hard work, exact training methods, positive character traits, a burning passion for great food, and a chance to become upwardly mobile should; and can be instilled in all your team members. The end benefit for every employee should culminate in the knowledge of how to run their own Food Service Establishment. The steps to success are the company. Our success relies on the people we train. Their success is our top concern. This company is about your people. Those people who have spent so many hours training with the hopes of one day having their own.

At MGFS We Want You to Succeed! We designed our website for operational research. Our customizable products and services, operational procedures and advanced spreadsheets give you an immediate advantage to hit the ground running. At MGFS we have incredibly dedicated team members to get you up and moving forward to maximize your hard earned dollars. We proudly serve the Greater New England Seacoast area.

« Facts of Interest »


The undisputed king of cheese is said to have originated in the province of Reggio Emilia, south of the Po Valley. The area was formally under the rule of the Dukedom of Parma which was the main trading center, hence its name. It was called the “Great Cheese of Seven Countries” because the ancient formula remained unchanged throughout the 700 years of history which altered the face of continents.  Records dating back to 1200 to 1300AD describe the characteristics of Parmigiano Reggiano as they are today and it is assumed that the real origins of the cheese go back even further as written by early Latin writers. It is a cheese best known around the world in its grated form - Parmesan; but in early maturity it is a fine table cheese said to have medicinal purposes.

            It is produced from the 1st of April to the 11th of November in large drums weighing 52 to 97 pounds, the average between 72 and 79 lbs. with a height of 7 to 9½ inches, and a circumference of 28 to 36 inches. It is made with unpasteurized but tested milk of morning and evening milking in the “zona tipica” of Bologna, Mantua, Modena, Parma, and Reggio Emilia, where the soil, climate, vegetation, fodder and cattle rearing traditions has influenced its flavor and quality over the centuries. 



Kitchen cooking TIPS AND TRICKS


A microwave oven uses electromagnetic waves that bounce off the surfaces and into the food to heat it. The microwaves penetrate the food from ¾ to 1 inch, causing the water molecules to vibrate producing friction and thus heat. Microwaved foods cook from the inside out.

  • After water, fat absorbs microwaves the best.

  • Arrange the food in a circle for even cooking. Favor the edge of the rotary tray, more waves reach there than in the center.

  • Use round dishes, square dishes overcook food at the corners.

  • Cover the food to reduce cooking time, but leave a place for steam to vent.

  • Use clear glass to watch the food cooking, not all plastics are microwaveable and metal causes electrical arcing.

  • Salted foods heat faster.

  • The Microwave does best with vegetables, then seafood, then chicken, then meat.

  • Never run the microwave empty, this will damage it.
