Hospitals are a non-stop operation. The hectic hours and demanding schedules required to keep such an operation at peak performance 24/7/365 impact numerous departments in a hospital. Foodservice is not exempt from these demands.
Food courts offering a variety of quick serve options and even full-service restaurants alongside the traditional cafeteria still do not address a growing trend in hospital foodservice. The grab and go market in the healthcare market continues to rise as busy lifestyles of staff and visitors are driving demand and revenues from this segment are growing upwards of 70%+ for facilities.
“We needed a satellite area because we are so busy with the server and we didn’t have any place to make sandwiches,” said Pamela Kelber, the Assistant Director of Food and Nutrition at the 300-bed hospital. “The kiosk generates quite a bit of revenue. Keeping staff on-site protects the revenue stream and enhances productivity.”
Mobile vending solutions allow the flexibility to offer sandwiches, snacks, and beverages. With a 24/7 operation, foodservice needs to be where the demand is and mobile vending is the way to offer healthy menu items at affordable price.
