About Us

We are award-winning foodservice facility design consultants who are creative, agile, and passionate about cultivating great client relationships.

Founded in 1993, Culinary Advisors has always been woman-owned and forward-thinking. We’re certified in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Our dynamic team has delivered more than 750 food service facility design projects in cultural spaces, convention centers, K-12 schools, higher education, healthcare, historic venues, hospitality, recreational facilities and workplace dining.

Of course, our close proximity to Washington, D.C. means that we’ve completed many government projects as well.

Design for the front line worker
Elevate the client experience
Utilize evolving technologies to solve today's challenges

Community service

Giving back is important to us. We believe in supporting the next generation of professionals through our industry association, Foodservice Consultants Society International. We take on pro bono projects to help underserved people and communities. And we encourage our team members to volunteer in their own hometowns. We’re proud to say that our co-founder Angela McPhaul is a three-term Mayor and Red Cross team leader in her community.
