Charlotte, N.C., September 8, 2020 — Chartwells Higher Education, a recognized leader in contract food service management, today celebrates the success of its college and university partners achieved through continued excellence in food service, including recent awards and recognitions from Niche, First Coast Worksite Wellness Council, and Food Management Magazine.
“We’re thrilled to see our dining teams and partners across the country getting these recognitions,” said Lisa McEuen, CEO of Chartwells Higher Education. “The hard work and dedication our front-line associates and partners put in every day on campus and in the community is inspiring, and we’re extremely proud to highlight the achievements they’ve earned for their exceptional work, care, and character.”
Chartwells’ college and university dining teams nationwide were recently spotlighted from a variety of institutions for their commitment to providing exceptional campus dining experiences, including:
● Niche’s 2021 Best College Food List: Niche, a leading K-12 and college search platform, selected Florida International University as ‘Best College Food in Florida’ and St. John Fisher College as ‘Best College Food in New York’ in its annual 2021 Best College Food report. The annual report is based on students’ access to healthy, quality food across a wide range of cuisines and dietary preferences, and recipients are selected based on cost and student reviews.
● First Coast Worksite Wellness Council’s ‘2020 Healthiest Companies’ Award: The University of North Florida (UNF) was selected as a Platinum Level recipient for the First Coast Worksite Wellness Council’s annual ‘Healthiest Company Award’ in August 2020. This was UNF’s twelfth consecutive year receiving this award, resulting from its ongoing commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of its campus community through initiatives such National Nutrition Month, which was a key partnership driven in part by the local UNF Chartwells team.
● Food Management’s 2020 Best Concept Award: Bowling Green State University’s (BGSU) robot-based meal delivery service was selected for Food Management’s ‘Best Customer Service Concept’ category as part of its annual ‘Best Concept Awards’ program. The delivery program, which launched with a fleet of 30 autonomous, on-demand robots, supported over 20,000 BGSU students, faculty, staff and surrounding community through meal delivery amid COVID-19.
● University of Wisconsin-Superior’s team accredited for excellent service: The Chartwells team at UW-Superior was recently acknowledged by Positively Superior Magazine for its excellent food service for the last 25+ years. Since becoming the university’s food service provider in 1991, Chartwells has served as a trusted campus partner for UW-Superior, and continues to provide healthy and diverse food options and service to students, employees and the surrounding community.
