Nourishing tomorrow's leaders...

The cafeteria carries a lot of expectations.  It's a place where friendships are made, secrets told, and young minds go to refuel.  Personal Touch knows what an important job it is to nourish tomorrow's leaders.

Your students want a choice and great taste.  You want nutrition and value.  Personal Touch provides both.  Through our extensive experience with schools and school systems, we've developed a unique sensitivity for student needs and respect for meeting administrative goals.  Whether it's the USDA subsidized meal program or an a la carte cafeteria service, a cash operation or card debit system, Personal Touch is up to the challenge.

Every facility we manage - public, private, or parochial - receives a unique approach customized to meet individual needs.  Personal Touch school solutions include:

  • Development of menus around the school's mission and goals
  • Continuous input from administration, students, and staff
  • Merchandising for maximum student participation
  • Offering a variety of nutritional choices and student favorites
  • Bringing excitement and personality to the experience

We can use your food facilities as they are, or redesign them as necessary.  We keep our relationship flexible to meet any challenge.

Colleges and Universities

Satisfying choices for selective students...

For college students, meals should be the high point of the day.  They're a chance to take a break, socialize and indulge, as well as refuel.  The Personal Touch approach to food service lets students do all of these things, while having a nutritional meal.

Variety and value are our key words.  We provide students with satisfying choices while keeping costs down for administrators.  You can rely on our flexibility, responsiveness to your evolving needs, and overall accountability.
