About a third of Whitsons’ revenues comes from the production of meals for the company’s various dining operations and for independent senior dining programs and the consumer market. Otherwise, Whitsons is primarily a K-12 specialist with contracts with over a hundred districts.
The company’s new school nutrition menu program allows managers to plan menus, select menu items from approved recipes, forecast usage to place orders and collect production and other data for future menu planning. The system also generates interactive menu PDFs that can display nutritional and allergen information on school websites.
Whitsons recently launched a new corporate website that includes social media, better communicates its corporate culture and philosophy and provides a forum for information sharing between its associates and the communities it serves.
