College and University Foodservice - US - February 2013
“Successful university dining services of tomorrow will keep abreast of students’ opinions in terms of foods/flavors as well as the direction of their interest in issues like health and sustainability. They will engage students with the use of events and technology and use every opportunity to prove to students that their opinions matter.
Though many college and university students have a meal plan, they frequently choose to forego it in favor of going out to eat. Dining services should study the popular locales to find out what draws students to them, and then look for ways to replicate what they learn.”
– Julia M. Gallo-Torres, Foodservice Category Manager
