In the past year, Southern has pursued a rebranding effort centered around “Something Extra in Onsite Dining. It also forged a partnership with the Danish integrated facilities services management firm ISS for pursuit of global facilities services contracts as a way of positioning itself as an alternative to the industry's so-called “Big Three” management companies.
On the menu front, Southern has put greater focus on grab-n-go, Premium (restaurant style) Meals using display cooking, sushi (under its own Pacific Rim brand), vegetarian selections, individual pasta bakes and premium deli offerings utilizing Boar's Head branded products. It also has put more emphasis on nutritional analysis and introduced its Farmers Market concept, featuring locally grown produce and organic offerings.
