The surge in higher education enrollment has been ongoing for almost two decades continues, with a record 18MM+ students enrolled in colleges and universities this year
Insight: Foodservice Directors go out of their way to give students what they want. Food at school is supposed to be part of the background, with studies taking precedent. This, though, makes colleges the most important place for confluence of ethnic foods and for building food habits that will last a lifetime. Plus, it is a significant volume opportunity as students eat 2-3 meals a day on campus.
Sales growth in hospitals is occurring in the cafeteria, as opposed to patient feeding.
Foodservice programs in on-premise dining (business and industry) are primarily run by FSMs. They have better handles on cost controls, necessary because the numbers of employees being fed is descreasing.
“We wanted to get their attention, so we subsidized the salad bar at a higher level and took their chocolate away.”
--Tim Crimmins, General Mills
"The old cafeteria model doesn't work anymore,. Employees expect their company's café to be at least as good as what they'd get at an independent eatery. The bottom line is, you're in the restaurant business.
--Ron Paul, Technomic
