Whitsons Culinary Group


Ranking #18

About a quarter of Whitsons' revenues come from the production of meals for the company's various dining operations as well as for independent senior dining programs and, most recently, for the consumer market. Most of the rest is generated by the management of onsite dining operations, mostly in K-12 schools.

A major recent initiative has been the development of a line of allergen-free foods under the NuLife Foods brand, which is available both to the consumer market and to Whitsons' K-12 clients. Also new for the K-12 market are SmartCalc, a web-based meal nutrition calculator, and Safari Cafe, a virtual online serving line where students can build a meal tray and see the nutrition information for the choices.
