John Roy is the Director of Dining Services for The Cedars community. Staff can usually spot him cooking in one of our kitchens, helping staff during service, or talking with residents about their meals and dining preferences. His passion is preparing healthy, delicious meals for our community with the freshest local ingredients.
A graduate of Johnson and Wales College and a recipient of the Cordon Bleu Medal and Who’s Who Award, John has over 30 years in culinary management from educational settings, to hotel and restaurants, corporate environments, healthcare and retirement communities.
John was born and raised in Waterville, Maine and today lives with his wife in Newcastle. He commutes over 50 miles each way daily. He must really enjoy working here – and The Cedars is lucky to have him on our team!
John looks forward to growing with our community, especially towards our exciting new transformation to the Household Model of care.
