Aramark's award winning, all Pro-Chef certified culinary team at the WSCC, works hard to exceed the expectations of every guest.

Our chefs create unique, regional dishes, made with locally sourced produce, seafood, meats and wines, in our scratch kitchen. Even the flour used in our in-house bakery comes from no-till farms in Eastern Washington. WSCC and Aramark are committed to the underlying ethical standards that match Seattle's social conscience. What we do in our kitchen for events cannot be duplicated by other convention centers; what we do can only happen in Washington.
