"As a Chef and restaurant owner, Dole and Bailey is a true asset to my business. From the unmatched food knowledge - to the Customer support system - to the professionalism of the delivery drivers! So many things have to go right for a dish to be executed properly, from the time order is placed to the time it's plated. The product must be picked properly, inspected for quality, stored and shipped at the proper temperatures, and delivered safely without damage... to name just a few. Dole and Bailey has been doing this masterfully since 1886! And, as far as the products they carry, they only deal in excellence. I truly believe if it’s not GREAT they don't carry it!! Without a doubt, I conﬁdently recommend Dole and Bailey as a dedicated, professional, and knowledgeable company that would be a beneﬁcial addition to any company or organization."
Chef/Owner Daron Goldstein
"The culinary service team at Dole and Bailey is well versed in their products and programs and take great pride to explain where they are sourced and how they were raised; always fully transparent! They are a committed partner in our quest to operate an award winning restaurant open 7 days a week serving between 50-200+ guests each evening.
At Moxy we provide our patrons with the most nutritious and responsibly raised foodstuffs available. We are passionate about strengthening our local foodways, and diverse ecosystems. We believe it is critical we work with small local farmers, larger cooperatives, and larger artisanal purveyors who share our values . We look forward to our continued relationship with Dole & Bailey!"

"I simply cannot believe all that you do to take care of every whim of each chef !! The product you provide is TOP NOTCH. Thank you to everyone at Dole & Bailey! Love you all, Lydia."
Chef Lydia Shire
"Dole and Bailey is a breath of fresh air. The entire staff at this 145 plus year-old provisioner is committed to being not just a provider, but more importantly a partner is your restaurant’s success. This type of partnership is invaluable as chefs and restaurateurs seek to complete the formula that results in guest satisfaction and business profitability. What defines a great restaurant today is the ability to not only select the best ingredients, build them into exquisite dishes, and service the customer with attentiveness and care, but even more importantly, to build relationships with vendors who care just as deeply about those goals. In a time when far too many providers offer less and less in terms of product knowledge, passion for ingredients, and commitment to breakthrough service, you can count on Dole and Bailey. They sincerely care about you and your business. In the Northeast, there is no one better."
