Whitsons Culinary Group


Ranking #16

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.

Just recently, the company scored a major coup with a three-year contract to provide ready-made meals to 86 schools in the Boston Public system that lack kitchens. It has also expanded its Nu-Life gluten/casein/soy free meal line to include homestyle foods such as Cheese Lasagna and Baked Ziti. Also new are a pair of concepts: the Grilled Cheese Bar, featuring various cheese, breads and fruits/vegetables, and Spice Bites, featuring special menus themed around specific cuisines to provide variety.
