CulinArt, Inc. 2012

Ranking #17

In the past year, CulinArt expanded its reach in the Philadelphia market with the acquisition of Cornucopia Corporate Dining Services. It also began service to a high-profile multi-city pharmaceutical company, opening 10 new locations in 6 states on a single day in conjunction with Cornucopia’s management team.

The company has recently introduced a modified “food truck” concept featuring international street foods such as Banh Mi, Empanadas and Korean BBQ, along with a “pop-up café” concept designed for multi-building accounts.

Its deli programs were bolstered with a new concept, Upmarket Sandwiches, that mimics a retail-style European deli and showcases pre-made specialty sandwiches on high-end breads and flatbreads.  

Beginning with March’s National Nutrition Month and continuing throughout the year, CulinArt’s “Step Up to the Plate” program educated corporate and education sectors customers on how to build their plate according to the USDA’s choosemyplate.gov guide.

On the sustainability front, CulinArt commenced its first beehive program at The George School in Newtown, PA, funding a grant to get the program up and running.  It also expanded its Farmers Market programs throughout the company, working with local distributors to establish farmers markets that offer organic meats and local eggs, cheeses, jams, honeys and other pantry items in addition to produce.
