Good food attracts and keeps good people. That’s the bottom line, whether you’re talking about the employee cafeteria or the executive dining room, right price, in an enjoyable setting, is the most visible perk a company can offer. To the employer, a popular cafeteria in the building means less time away from the job. A high level of service and cuisine is even more important when you’re entertaining clients.
Because a company’s food service is so important, it is vital to get sound advice in the planning stage, before critical decisions are made affecting operational costs. Where are the elevators, loading docks, and exhaust systems that will form the umbilicus of the kitchen? Should there be separate executive and employee dining rooms? If so, should they use the same core kitchen? Should the owner or contractor handle the day-to-day operations? What services should a contractor provide, and which firm is the best suited to provide them? What will it cost the company and the employee?
At Marenic Food Service Consulting, we’ve seen these problems before. We know the trade-offs and the pitfalls. As one of the most respected, and most comprehensive consulting firms in the food service industry, we have developed and designed scores of food services in major corporate offices, in situations ranging from fast to full-service restaurants, country clubs to sports arenas, international hotels to airports and medical centers.
With staff specialists experienced in every area of food service design and management, we can recommend the kind of service that is right for your situation, whether it is a microwave-vending machine operation, a random selection cafeteria, or an elegant buffet. We stress the programming side of the project, working with the operations team, the architect, and the interior designer to fit the food service into the total corporate picture, without compromising the efficiency of the kitchen or ambiance of the dining area.
We provide all the experience you need in food service, interior design or architectural-related questions, from developing a long-range plan for your food service to review of operating alternatives, physical layout, menus and tabletop design. We can help you avoid cramped work areas and cross-traffic.
