Continental Dining & Refreshment Services


Ranking #38

Continental realizes about half of its revenues from vending. Cafe operations, catering, office refreshment services and onsite c-stores make up the rest. The catering arm is highlighted by two cruise ships the company owns and uses to host events.

Green initiatives, local procurement, healthy and organic menu choices, nutrition labeling and recyling are some of the initiatives emphasized over the past year. Continental has also introduced new signature concepts to its cafes, added interactive online catering menus and introduced value meals — including dollar items — to its menus to accommodate value-conscious customers.
