Culinary Professional Standards Audit
Higher education dining programs have grown considerably in complexity over the last decade due to many factors, but primarily because of the increased expectations of its key end users—well informed and traveled students. As industry professionals, whether we can admit it or not, the enormous level of growth and interest in food, nutrition and “dining out” has far out-distanced the management and culinary capabilities of most college and university dining operators causing a significant gap in performance.
To combat this performance gap, On-Site Culinary Solutions has developed a timely and unique process that helps college and university dining programs surface all of their culinary based operational issues. The process, which On-Site Culinary Solutions calls its’ Culinary Professional Standards Audit, solves the fundamental operational problems experienced by most colleges and universities through a unique “hands on” training and follow through commitment.
