Each spring, foodservice directors as well as district administrators consider changes for the following school year. If your foodservice program is humming along on all cylinders, you may be looking at ways to increase your menu variety or streamline operations. If it's losing revenues, facing declining participation and increasing complaints, you may be considering drastic measures to turn things around. Or worse, your administration may be weighing outsourcing your entire foodservice program to a foodservice management company (FSMC) without your knowledge or input.
Foodservice management companies may seem like an easy solution to plaguing problems. Just turn over your program and let someone else worry about it. But it's not that simple.
While there are many good, ethical foodservice management companies, it’s important to understand they have totally different objectives than independent, self-operated school foodservice programs. They are profit-centered corporations, with profitability as their ultimate goal, sometimes at the expense of their client schools.
What do these companies generally mean for districts?
