Students are hard to please. Some grew up on home cooking, others
on fast food. Some are sensitive to nutrition, others could care less as long
as it tastes good. How do you please them all? From preschoolers to
postgraduates, Valley has some fresh ideas on the subject.
The greatest challenge facing any college food service operation is
how to keep students on campus at mealtime. Valley does it by preparing food
that students and faculty want to eat and by making it easy for them to do so.
Our proprietary systems make food preparation efficient and affordable, and our
declining balance cards for students and payroll deduction cards for faculty
boost sales by making dining a cashless transaction. We are a licensed operator
for nationally branded concepts including sandwich, chicken, pizza and Mexican
food, which are solid competition for off-campus fast food dining. Our own
"Signature Branded Concepts" feature chicken, pasta and other
popular dishes that give the "real" restaurants off-campus a run for their
money. We've received high marks for our attention to nutrition, as well as our
ability to keep up with the changing interests of the student body. Vegetarian
menus and on-campus coffee houses are just a few of the creative solutions
Valley has developed to engage students. These kinds of ideas, combined with
smarter food purchasing, menu planning, inventory management, point-of-sale
control and personnel training, scheduling and review, make Valley a leader in
college food service.
Schools with excellent academic records should demand excellence in
food service as well. Full-service management from Valley is the
cost-effective, high-quality solution for academies.
