History

Davians history started as a small vending business begun in 1958 in a residence, servicing six candy and cigarette machines, to present day operation, D&S Food Services, operating as Davians, is a food service innovator serving the greater Wisconsin region.

The corporation, consisting of our three main divisions: Dining & Corporate Cafes, Office Coffee & Vending, Catering and Events, continues to enjoy sustained growth and offer exceptional service for our patrons. Consistent quality and impeccable service are the cornerstones of our reputation.

We established our 9,000 squarefoot catering and events center in 1990 as part of the 45,000 squarefoot corporate and vending building located at N56W16300 Silver Spring Dr in Menomonee Falls. Together, with the anticipated growth of the food service and vending machine business, Davians found it a natural progression to diversify into allied fields. This includes servicing corporate cafeterias, catering service for special events on client premises and office coffee service.

Founders, David and Vivian Kwarciany (the derivative of the “Davians” name) are proud to have four of their six children grow up in the business and advance into integral rolls in the day-to-day operations. The Kwarciany’s feel strongly that the major reason the firm has experienced its continued growth is due to the persistent efforts and dedication of their employees.

Wedding Reception: Davians Event Center

Davians was so easy to work with. The wedding coordinator was very knowledgeable and informed on everything that was happening. We had dropped off our decorations the day before and they set them up perfectly. The food was AMAZING and they worked with my DJ to nail down times to keep the event rolling. I didn't have to think/worry about anything and we just enjoyed our night. I wouldn't have changed anything!

Davians was just astounding. The staff was very effective and patient. Site Manager Jeannette really stepped up to the task at hand and exceeded ALL of our expectations in every way. Not only that, one of the owners of Davians personally came out and thanked us and showed her gratitude, I was really honored and touched by her hospitality. We WILL for sure have another event at Davians. We cannot thank Davians enough.

 

Wedding & Reception: Davians Event Center

Davians took care of everything. They handled all the decorations and did an amazing job. It took so much stress out of planning! The staff at Davians are definitely experienced in hosting events like weddings. Everything from rentals like chairs and linens to a delicious catered dinner, Davians provides it all. We would recommend them to anyone!

Offsite Catering

My non-profit has used Davians Catering on two different occasions each for week long community trainings for lunch. Their menu provided many options to choose from which included a variety of food options in which we could customize. If there was something we wanted to change due to diet, they were able to accommodate. The staff were always on time and set up professionally and quietly since our food was being served in the same room as the training. Lastly, their staff was easy to get a hold of, responded promptly, and communicated well. We will definitely be using them again in the future! Highly recommend!
