Serving Sandia

Over the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend, we added more members to the Taher family. Taher opened multiple cafeterias at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico.


Join us on our journey across the scientific community and let us show you how we nourish the best and brightest minds that the United States has to offer. Today, we focus on Sandia National Laboratory.

Taher Takes Over

With not much time to launch, the Taher team sprang into action. Transferring everything over and training staff on Taher’s high-quality standards was the top priority.

Meeting with the new team

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of the Sandia opening; to work with Taher, Inc.’s highly experienced opening team; and to meet all of the wonderful people who will now be working with Taher, Inc.  I am very impressed by the team’s commitment to quality of work and to witness their dedication to excellence of customer service.  There are many superstars on this team.  I anticipate great things will emerge from this location!

Ready For Day One

Chef Matt Quist showed the new hires Taher’s chef-driven approach to food and service to customers. The team was eager and picked up everything the Chef Council member had to teach them very quickly.
