Taher operates primarily in the Upper Midwest, where it is a major player in the K-12 market. In all, it operates at more than 400 locations. Taher’s recent foray into operating commercial restaurants has been reversed with the sale of a number of these properties. The company generates most of its revenues through managing dining operations for clients, mostly public school districts.
In its operations, Taher continues to focus on fresh foods, as many local ingredients as possible and from-scratch prep. To deal with price pressures in a difficult economy, the company emphasizes moderately priced entrees such as half-sandwiches and smaller portions.
