About Flik


FLIK Independent Schools is proud to manage the dining operation at Milton Academy. Flik recently won the “National Whole Grains Challenge Award,” and the Flik “National Account of the Year Award,” and successfully converted our menus to be Trans-Fat Free. Flik at Milton continues to follow Compass’ commitment to sustainability by increasing our use of locally grown products and only using sustainable seafood. FLIK Independent Schools has been a preeminent food service provider to over 100 private and independent school communities during the past three decades. Basing our success on freshly prepared quality food, we proudly implement superior dining programs in prestigious independent schools and colleges. Nourishing students is not only our business; it is our commitment to the communities that we serve. We take pride in providing customers with the programs and solutions that fit their unique needs, and we always look forward to maintaining our commitment to excellence by creating a delicious, exciting and healthful dining experience. Quality is our main ingredient.

Our quick rise to excellence from very humble beginnings can be attributed to our dedicated founders. Ruediger and Julie Flik founded Flik International Corp in 1971 when they contracted Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, an account retained to this day. Over the years, FLIK has expanded its client base from the independent school and college sectors to corporate dining clients and private catering.

In the fall of 2001, Flik Independent Schools was introduced as a new division of the Compass Group designed to provide quality food service management specifically for the independent school. Our accounts range from the northern borders of Maine, south to Virginia and west to Kentucky and everywhere we go we pride ourselves in providing expertly prepared food and service that reflects the unique and individualized needs of these diverse populations and communities.

FLIK Independent Schools is a member of the Compass Group, the largest food service supplier in the world.
