Maryam Chaney’s mantra in her oversight of all things food and beverage is “Best Product, Best Process.” Her strength is logistics and acute attention to detail. With more than 25 years of experience in the fields of culinary development and education, supply chain and procurement, compliance, and editing, Maryam deftly spots opportunities for improvement and then moves until the job is done.
For all brands in the Savory portfolio, Maryam oversees culinary operations and menu engineering, supply chain and logistics, and food safety and compliance. She manages healthy relationships with Savory’s suppliers, from whom over $30 million of product is purchased annually.
Having spent more than 15 years as an editor and award-winning designer, Maryam developed a critical eye that exacts refinement. As a lifelong gastronome, Maryam delights in sharing the enjoyment of food. While running a private catering business, she developed and instructed a popular series of culinary courses for the community education arm of Utah Valley University.
Maryam was recognized in 2021 by Utah Business as one of 30 Women to Watch. She received an MBA from BYU’s Marriott School of Business. A picture-perfect day for Maryam is exploring a new town with her husband and four daughters and finding local eats off the beaten path.
