CSS is committed to providing the industry's broadest and most robust software for foodservice professionals. CSS, the makers of CorTec Software and ChefTec Software, provides software tools to chefs, owners, operators, and other foodservice professionals in the foodservice industry. The products serve a vast cross section of the foodservice industry including restaurants, caterers, hotels, supermarkets, multi-unit foodservice operations, educators, and many others.
Widely recognized for its award-winning products, CSS enables customers to work more efficiently and to maximize profits.
Cloud Services from CSS free operators from the constraints, costs, and learning curves associated with software provided by competing companies, purveyors, and POS companies. CSS's licensing innovations directly help customers reduce the costs associated with software management and deployment.

Since 1990, CSS's products have enabled customers to enhance staff productivity, optimize costs, streamline compliance, and
On an island in the Caribbean in 1990, two entrepreneurs came up with a concept that later culminated in what is known as CorTec Software. One brought his deep foodservice industry knowledge, and the other, a career founded in computer software design and development. From the beginning, these two kept in mind how vital profit margins can be to the survival of culinary operations. They wanted to help provide solutions.
Escoffier Software, the precursor to ChefTec and eventually CorTec, was the first inventory management software developed by CSS. Escoffier Software was named after Auguste Escoffier, the French culinary icon and chef who popularized and modernized the tradition of French cuisine, elevating the career of cooking. Choosing the name Escoffier Software was a nod to the refinement and finesse of Auguste Escoffier and the product developed into more than just a simple inventory management tool.
With over twenty-five years of focused experience, Culinary Software Service supplies the most sophisticated and robust food management systems for the foodservice industry. Easily considered the industry-standard, the company has received numerous awards, including the Foodservice Innovator's Award for Excellence.
The world is constantly changing and CSS believes that as important as it is to stay agile, maintaining integrity and value needs to be central too. CSS values its customers, community, and global responsibility. We strive to help local and international organizations succeed through tough economic times, using our software, and through direct community support. CSS promotes local organizations in various sectors, from non-profits to the neighborhood vendors and contractors we depend on. We believe that when companies engage locally, everyone benefits.
With this in mind, CSS created the "ChefTec Fund", allowing us to provide software to non-profits to help them meet their goals. Technology's future is important to us too so, we have donated computers to a local school to fill their computer lab. Specifically, CSS is concerned with developing tomorrow's hospitality workforce, just as we are a part of the development of a better future for foodservice operations.
Our next program for cultivating these future leaders is now in development. Check back soon about dates for our upcoming paid internship programs for students of hospitality, technology, and marketing!
Companies like CSS have responsibilities. In the United States and many other advanced countries, almost fifty percent of the food grown or produced is thrown away. We believe that this troubling issue can change through increased access to knowledge and analytical tools. When foodservice operations use CorTec or ChefTec they have the ability to track waste and tailor more accurate portion sizes, resulting in less food waste. Culinary Software Services strives to provide better solutions for our customers and promote important causes. Join us in the conversation on Twitter, @ChefTec.
Culinary Software Services would like to specially recognize several organizations here in Boulder, CO, that we believe in and whose programs we've sponsored over the years. The Colorado Music Festival is hosted each year at the Chautauqua Auditorium and run by The Center for Musical Arts (www.COMusic.org/about-us), who believe in "Music For All...For Life!" We highly recommend attending one of their spectacular performances! CSS also supports the Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company (BETC) (BETC.org), who have garnered hosts of prizes and awards for their work over the years. Finally, in years past, our company has contributed funds to support programming at the Shakespeare Festival of Boulder. All of these wonderful organizations open up access, across the entire community, to cultural events and performances, and we thank them for their dedication and collaboration.
CSS serves more than 45,000 users in foodservice organizations worldwide.
