“His experiences both in and out of education have allowed him to build meaningful and lasting relationships as well as strengthen his skills along several professional lines,” Scharnell said.
“I have been astoundingly impressed at Quality Catering by the kitchen staff and delivery drivers’ ability to turn out and distribute 15,000 tasty, healthy and ready-to-eat meals each day,” said Miller.
Miller holds a degree in English and secondary education with a minor in linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University. He has also pursued a master’s degree in human services and counseling from DePaul University. Miller enjoys outdoor activities, photography, and do-it-yourself projects around his home located just south of the Wisconsin border.

Quality Catering is a business that appreciates and wants to please every customer no matter the size of the account. Their belief in their product and their desire to provide the best and most healthy meal options out there is commendable, and I consider myself fortunate to be part of this team.”
Quality Catering each day prepares and delivers 15,000 ready-to-serve meals to child care centers, child development centers and adult day care centers in southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Meals meet or exceed the USDA Food Plate recommendations for nutrition. Its commissary in Lake Villa, Ill., is the only one in the Midwest that is USDA-inspected each day to ensure food safety.
