Our ‘Composed Plate’ concept was modeled after Spanish Tapas to offer restaurant quality, small-plate presentations, in the all-you-care-to-enjoy format for Residential Dining. It encourages guests to explore and experience a variety of foods, but in smaller portions. Ongoing nutritional education is integrated into the menu offerings. Vegetarian and No-Gluten-Added options are posted at each meal period.
A Special Dietary Needs Station offers No-Gluten-Added, Dairy-Free and other Special-request Diet Items. Meal Plans are customized to meet special dietary needs while maintaining fellowship. Nutritional information is posted for static items and always available upon request for rotating menu items.
MARKETING MATERIAL & MONOTONY BREAKERS
From the moment you enter one of our various food service locations our menu is posted. A themed concept monitor or sign at each station reflects the menu being served. Concepts change at each meal, allowing our large global menu to rotate with ease. Each station displays an individual stylized-plate of goodness.
A decorative chalkboard listing the offerings in large letters at each station makes it easy-to-read without getting in line. We offer many monotony breakers announced through table tents, posters, email blasts throughout the semester to keep the students engaged. We also like to be “adventurous” and offer out-of-the-ordinary menu items (think, pork belly) to create interest and have the students expand their culinary horizons!
To measure our guest satisfaction levels, guest surveys are available each and every day, and are taken electronically at the end of each semester. The data is used to drive change that matches the wishes of our client base. Our Student Food Committee provides additional menu feedback on behalf of the campus.
