Elephants mission is to provide a fun, friendly, energetic, sensory food experience with exceptional quality and service. As their operation grows, so does their impact on their community. With this in mind, the Elephants herd utilizes the triple bottom line, where people, planet, and profit are their measurement for success. At all levels of their business, they work to demonstrate and share this commitment with their employees and their customers--and to seek sustainable approaches to food service to work towards a better future.
