About Sterling Services

Fresh Thinking & Fresh Food for Business Since 1986

The concept is simple enough: Great food. Quality products. Exceptional service. Executing it flawlessly for 30 years has helped Sterling Services live up to its name and become an industry leader in fueling smart workplaces.

Created in 1986 as a vending provider, the company has grown to offer corporate dining management, office coffee service, catering, foodservice consulting and point-of-sale micro markets. Sterling is not just the best. It’s also one of the first, revolutionizing convenience shopping with 24-hour markets throughout southeast Michigan.

At its core are bedrock principles of community, convenience and service instilled by its founders, Chris Peppo and Ray Friedrich. They’re passionate about high-quality products and impeccable service and surround themselves with people who feel the same.

They’re innovators like Corporate Executive Chef Bekim Pellumbi, an entrepreneur whose extraordinary knowledge of cuisine and client service has expanded the business. And Jeffrey Ranck, who brings more than 35 years of experience in international food service and leads business development.

Those are just two of Sterling’s phenomenal partners. The entire team is dedicated to delicious, bringing the very best cuisine and services into workplaces and doing so affordably and conveniently.

One of the most respected companies in Michigan, Sterling Services is proud to call as clients companies in business, education, healthcare, hospitality, multi-tenant complexes, fitness and corrections industries.

Committed to constant improvement, Sterling is thrilled to launch its next step, Fresh at Work Markets. The point-of-sale markets inside company locations (Also called micro markets) feature menus that are custom-tailored for businesses and are flexible enough to fit in most any footprint. Fresh at Markets are quickly becoming the must have break room amenity at Detroit area workplaces.

Great food. Great employees. Great service.

It’s the simple recipe that Sterling Services delivers every day. Now that’s cooking. That’s Fresh at Work!
