Catering revenue on the rise in colleges

Though a large number of operators (45%) reported that their catering revenue stayed the same in the past year, there are some promising signs of growth in certain segments, according to The Big Picture.

The average hospital foodservice director

We surveyed those individuals who are in charge of hospital foodservice operations and asked them to tell us about themselves. Hospital management operators were significantly more likely than other segments to hold the title of director of food and nutrition services, at 18%.

We surveyed those individuals who are in charge of school foodservice operations and asked them to tell us about themselves.

See what operators are serving on their lunch, dinner and dessert menus and what categories they expect to grow in the next two years.

Our research shows few operators expect their catering revenue to decrease in the next two years. That data and more is covered in this survey.

Salary info, director's profile, increasing responsibilities and the impact of technology are covered in this year's workforce survey.

We surveyed nearly 600 foodservice management professionals to find out about their salaries and demographic profiles. It's good news on the salary front if you're a director at a college or hospital, but bad news if you're a woman or working in a long-term care facility.

Lunch makes up the bulk of business at non-commercial locations, according to The Big Picture.

Cooking, hot/cold holding and cold storage are the three equipment categories operators plan to upgrade or replace the most in the next two years.

Fruit, by far, is the dessert category that operators expect to grow the most in the next two years (42%).
