Food Services, Inc. Selected as Cafeteria, Catering and Dining Vendor

fsi-logo-200wValencia College is pleased to announce the selection of Food Services, Inc. as the College’s new food service vendor for cafeteria and catering dining experiences on all campuses.

Food Services, Inc. (FSI) is a leading, on-site management company operating in Central Florida and the Midwest and offers full food-service management to colleges, universities, corporations and other organizations.

The new contract was accepted by the Valencia’s District Board of Trustees on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, and will take effect Wednesday, July 1, 2015. FSI has been on campus for the past four weeks making sure all plans are firmly in place for a smooth transition with no interruptions in food service.

FSI is excited to be a part of the Valencia community and has many things planned for all of its sites. These items include bringing national brands to many of the campuses and incorporating more fresh and made-to-order offerings, better social media marketing, local and sustainable efforts in food preparation and service, and expanded on-the-go options for the time sensitive consumer.

Another goal for FSI is to continue to be a major student and community employer on campus. All existing staff will be given an opportunity to work in the new structure. Also, an expanded emphasis on more student staff will be pursued for all locations. Watch for digital postings, signage and job fair information on your campus.

Some food venue updates and changes can be expected, and retail pricing across campuses will remain competitive. As another added benefit, you’ll also want to keep watch for information on limited time offers, frequency reward offerings, new product samplings and a new mobile purchasing app for some of their offerings.

canteen-logo-200wValencia welcomes FSI to the College and looks forward to everything they have to offer to the students, staff and faculty.

The Board of Trustees also approved the company Canteen for vending services.

    "All campuses" meaning Winter Park, as well? I know we're small, but we're desperate for some kind of upgrade, even if it's just better coffee options.
