CL Swanson Corp.

RSS

Ranking #32

CL Swanson is primarily a vending firm that gets about a quarter of its revenues from dining, catering, office coffee and convenience retailing services. It is currently looking to expand in the government and education segments, has developed a proprietary branded program called Bistro Box Lunches and added Laura Kalt, MBA, RD, to head its Food Service Group.

In addition, the company has been continuing to emphasize its Better-4-You healthy lifestyle program and moved to more by-the-ounce self-service salad and sandwich bars, which reduce labor needs while gratifying customer demands for more control over portion size and ingredients.
