Concept The core of the concept is simple. Make the decision to provide an employee cafeteria financially feasible. Most mid-tier employers want, and need a convenient on-site eatery for their employees but cannot justify the investments for leasehold improvement and /or management contracts required to build, staff, and manage kitchen and cafeteria operations. Our centralized production process eliminates redundant plant, property, and equipment investments, minimizes staff requirements, and maximizes productivity. Our kitchen facility becomes your kitchen facility. The central kitchen serves the needs of multiple clients’ eliminating the need for kitchen facilities at your site. The food is produced in our commissary and sent to your facilities for retherm & presentation with some items arriving hot in thermal transport containers. This shift to centralized production also allows us to eliminate the cost of the additional kitchen staff that would be needed if separate production facilities were maintained. This allows commissary production to be made in larger batches to meet the needs of multiple clients enhancing productivity and resulting in lower unit costs. The only staff required at your site relative to cafeteria operations is cashiers.

The core of the concept is simple. Make the decision to provide an employee cafeteria financially feasible. We centralize production, eliminate redundant investments, improve efficiency & productivity and bundle similar services to make the math for the investment work.

The second major component of our approach involves the bundling of services. We ask our clients to place their coffee, vending, and new cafeteria contracts under our management. The higher margin coffee and vending contracts blended with the lower margin cafeteria operations work together allowing us to comfortably maintain a cafeteria operation with affordable food prices for your employees. Our bundled concept simplifies management of all your food & beverage services placing them under one umbrella with one point of contact and one service tech.

Cafeteria Services Cafeteria Concepts has developed a unique business model that allows mid-tier employers the ability to offer a full service cafeteria to their employees without the expense of building out or maintaining a full on-site kitchen operation. Our approach centralizes the majority of the production process while essential elements are finished on-site. We utilize a blend of commissary resources in conjunction with decentralized presentation, temperature maintenance, and retherm assets to provide our service. This simple shift maximizes efficiency, reduces cost, and makes the previously unobtainable a reality for your employees. The investment is ours to make. We install and maintain our own equipment. No leases, no subsidies, no complicated arrangements; just a standard services contract. The risk is ours. Build outs and structural changes are not required. Our concepts will comfortable fit into the average break room. Our footprint in your facility is minimal. The typical installation will include one to two 2-tier Custom Deli hot buffets. This 2-tier unit can display five to ten entrĂŠe on the upper lever and as many accompaniments on the lower shelf. We pair this presentation with a salad bar, and a grab-n-go merchandiser featuring convenient ready to eat sandwiches, salads, cold sides and desserts. The result is an abundant variety of offerings to please any taste or budget. Menus are presented a la carte and include daily offerings tailored to the demands of the client based served. Our white collar, high-density office space menu has an emphasis on casual dining theme offerings with a full line salad bar. Our industrial offering is calorie intensive and emphasizes comfort foods with hearty sandwiches and available healthy choices. Both environments focus on choice and budget. Our staff is experienced and innovative and includes the former Director of Catering for Vanderbilt University, & the Non Commissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC) of base food service operations at Fort Bragg. Our President, Chris Cox, is a recognized leader and consultant in the area of senior nutrition where he redefined the food distribution paradigm and best practice for the industry achieving previously unobtainable results. We understand food service logistics, volume production, and service the way it use to be. We have a solution that is uniquely suited to solve the post flood food service operation needs at A.O. Smith. We have deployed this solution to two HCA facilities employing in excess of 700 personnel with outstanding results. We are ready to deploy this solution for A.O. Smith.

Vending Services Vending is a business where differentiation is difficult to achieve. The reality is that we all sell Coke, Pepsi, and Frito Lay brand snacks. What separates one vendor from the next? Focus. Most vending companies focus on a specific bottler, Coke or Pepsi, and the relationship they can cultivate. This relationship has its advantages. Major vending company’s profits stem from the rebates bottlers offer in exchange for exclusivity.

What’s missing from this scenario? How about the customer!!

We slot a full lineup of snacks and candy that we monitor for likeability. If something isn’t working we pull it from the lineup and slot another item. Most of our snacks are in 1oz bags with some larger packages offered. The goal is simple: diversity of price point and offering for our clients that effectively serves the needs of our customers.

What’s missing from this scenario? How about the customer!! In vending you can choose to focus on the back office deals made with bottlers, or you can focus on serving the needs of your customer. We have chosen the customer. Our success is driven by providing clean, attractive equipment in good working order offering national brands tailored to the regional and location specific preferences of our customers. You will find both Coke and Pepsi products in our lineup offered in cans and bottles. In addition to these leading names, we slot generic brands for the price conscious consumer. Your employees will have an abundance of choice at prices they feel comfortable with.

A customer centered focus rich with diversity of offerings and price points drives sales higher than back office deals. Switching to a customer focused vendor increases the potential you have for higher commissions. More importantly, it improves employee satisfaction with the benefits provided in the food service operation.
