What is a cafeteria?
We know that a cafeteria is a place where people go to eat. They are found in businesses, universities, K-12 schools, correctional facilities, and military buildings. Typically, when we think of cafeterias in these organizations, we don’t think about style or design; we think about function and efficiency. LTI provides cafeteria solutions that allow these ideas to mix together.
Let's take a closer look at the different types of cafeteria settings and discover how foodservice equipment from LTI can help upgrade your Florida cafeteria.
According to an article from Career Addict, in-office cafeterias can increase productivity from your employees. Corporate dining facilities can keep people on campus, facilitate collaboration, and even become a revenue source for businesses. However, boring, outdated cafeterias will not attract your employees. Give your existing cafeteria a facelift with new serving lines from LTI, and give your employees a reason to stay in the office for lunch.
K-12 School Cafeterias
Participation in school nutrition programs is essential to making the programs work, but what is required to make that happen? Students want more customizable options, and parents want healthier offerings. At one high school in Florida, a cafeteria makeover from LTI led to a 25% increase in school lunch participation. At another school, a remodel of the school’s cafeteria offered students a more collegiate feel. The renovation resulted in fresh, made-to-order food that appealed to both the students and parents.
College is often a time when students begin to expand their palates. They want good food and plenty of choices. LTI helped the University of Georgia’s Bolton Dining Hall give the students what they wanted. The design of this ten-concept dining hall focuses on exhibition cooking and small batch production to increase freshness. This renovation led to a five percent increase in meal plan participation amongst students.
