5 ways for your campus dining program to bloom this spring

This Spring is a critical time to enhance the value of your campus hospitality programs so that returning students believe in it and potential students are enticed as they visit your campus and imagine it as home for four years.

The pressure is on to secure student enrollment commitments.

Discover 5 Ways Harvest Table has preserved and enhanced the value of dining on campus even with COVID-19 restrictions in place, all while keeping campus communities safe and delivering experiences students crave:

    1. A seat at our table and a spot in our kitchen 
      They may have looked a bit different but we still featured farm to table dinners, virtual teaching kitchens and inspired pop-ups throughout the fall semester. Our farm to table dinners have grown to other partner campuses and we were even able to coordinate them for students to have a safe and craveworthy experience while restrictions were in place during the fall semester.

    2. 91% satisfaction with mobile ordering does not happen with one click
      It takes a new perspective from the customer view and having each team member rethink their role in the customer journey. At High Point University we successfully transitioned to over 45,000 mobile transactions per week with a 91% satisfaction rate.

    3. Restaurant quality food and presentation is not optional
      Last Fall our culinary teams rewrote menus and trained our teams to ensure the same great flavors and visually enticing dishes, whether they were served on a plate or in a box.

    4. Quarantine meals that students really enjoy!
      For students in quarantine, health, comfort and convenience were non-starters. Our culinary approach was to make sure that students in quarantine felt the same care and quality and a little extra love and attention.

    5. Lifting our community partners
      As many small and family businesses have been impacted by COVID-19, and large vendors were faced with supply shortages, we took this opportunity to further commit to the communities we serve and bring quality local and fresh ingredients to our campuses. Watch how we partner with local farms and businesses.
