Fiscal 2014 Revenues: $74,000,000
In 2014, CDS introduced a completely redesigned website, including a mobile friendly platform and nutritional database of its recipes that customers can access. It also rolled out a client smartphone app that includes enhanced navigation and site-specific image libraries. Other program enhancements include an expansion of the company’s Creative University training program to assist its culinarians in getting and maintaining ACF certification.
Finally, in early 2015, CDS announced that longtime company head Steve Hiligan is stepping down and will be retiring in June, with Jim Eickhoff taking over as president/CEO.
