Gourmet Services began in 1975 as a campus dining services provider to half a dozen historically black colleges. It expanded rapidly in that segment and into other segments, especially B&I. To serve customers better, it also secured branding alliances with a number of notable street restaurant chains, including McDonald's, Cinnabon, Chick-fil-A and Subway.
The company's most prominent business initiative over the past year has been the launch of a wellness program that incorporates various facets of healthy dining and overall lifestyle wellness to its higher education accounts. A modified version has also been developed for B&I clients.
The company also bolstered its management ranks with a new VP-marketing/sales, Kristen Hoffman, who has spearheaded GSI's wellness and social media initiatives.
