Ice cream is for adults, too, and can be far more interesting than vanilla. Try these flavors from Japan (Green Tea Ice Cream), China (Passion Fruit-Litchi Sorbet) and Chile (Ancho-Chocolate Ice Cream.)

Ingredients

1 cup water
1⁄4 cup sugar
2 cups passion fruit juice
2 tbsp. rum
1⁄2 cup diced, canned litchi nuts
1 pt. chocolate ice cream
1 pt. green tea ice cream
Crushed, dried ancho chiles
12 waffle cones

Steps

1. For passion fruit-litchi sorbet: Stir water and sugar in a saucepan over moderate heat until sugar dissolves; bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool. Stir in passion fruit juice; chill until cold. Stir in rum.

2. Freeze mixture in an ice cream machine according to directions until slushy. Add litchi nuts and continue to freeze in machine until mixture is firm. Transfer sorbet to a container and freeze until service.

3. For ancho-chocolate ice cream: Mix 1⁄4 tsp. crushed ancho chiles into softened chocolate ice cream. Freeze until firm.

4. Per order, portion generous scoops of passion fruit sorbet, ancho chocolate, and green tea ice cream into waffle cones.

Ideas and Innovation
trail mix

We’ve added fueling stations in our units for our workers who didn’t have time to eat or just need a snack. We have areas set up with trail mix, crackers, cookies and water.

reusable coffee cup thermos

We were inspired by a book titled “Influence” to start a sustainable cup program called My Cup. All 15,000 new students receive a reusable cup with their name on it, which they can use at the dining halls. Personalizing helps them invest in the program and actually use it.

In a time of growing health consciousness, it might not be enough anymore for food to be merely filling. According to Technomic’s 2016 Healthy Eating Consumer Trend Report , diners are looking for food with a function, such as those with high protein content, immunity-boosting properties, antioxidants, probiotics and more. The data suggests 63% of consumers see these foods as healthier than those without any specific nutritional function—and would be more likely to buy them.

But are those stated preferences translating on an operational level? There, the answer is less clear. Baby...

phone bed call sick

We make people call and directly talk to their boss or supervisor if they are reporting an absence for a shift. While it is more cumbersome, it is a conscious decision. We have adapted and implemented electronic methods to obtain efficiencies in just about every other functional area, except for electronic absence reporting systems. The direct supervisor can put more pressure on an employee to show up—especially those with some form of the “Super Bowl plague”—than any electronic system can.
