Facility Managers are responsible for everything from security and maintenance to individual employee needs. This includes creating a successful menu for daily operations containing easy to prep and simple to serve food items. A menu should be cost-effective and exciting for your employees to experience. Here are a few things to keep in mind during the creation process:

  • Breakfast: Breakfast is often called the “most important meal of the day,” because it is the first thing your body absorbs after sleeping at night. Breakfast is key for your energy levels, and therefore it is important that businesses consider providing breakfast options for their employees. Think about the Continental Breakfast options hotels and restaurants provide, and create a grab-and-go style breakfast.
  • Buffet Style Options: Allow individuals to create their own plates filled with the items they like. Consider including soups, salads, wraps, and easy to make batch items like cookies or a casserole. If possible, you can also have a rotating ethnic cuisine table to showcase company diversity and respect the different types of tastes your employees may have.
  • Sustainability: Consider using as many sustainable methods as possible to reduce costs, improve business reputation, and help the environment. 
  • Dietary Restrictions: Don’t forget to include labels and nutrition facts on food items in your cafeteria to help those who have dietary restrictions or food allergies.

A cafeteria is a popular place for team members to gather, and the benefits of having a well thought out menu will have a positive impact on your business. If you need assistance with developing your facility cafeteria or menu, contact us at (210) 495-1950 or email us at
