Why Bother with Wellness?
Wellness has entered a whole new era and addressing it is a whole new ballgame for onsite dining
From the "healthy dining choice" to the "healthy dining experience". It's now about whole-person wellness. Delivering experiences that enhance diners' quality of life. Those that impact their physical health, but also their mental, emotional, social and other areas of wellbeing, including how they feel, think and perform.
This new era of wellness demands new knowledge and skills, specialized resources, and new approaches.
And that's where we come in....
Setting the Benchmark for Wellness Excellence
Over the past decade, wellness has offered the onsite dining industry the opportunity to differentiate through unique, internally driven approaches to wellness. This has worked well for our industry in the past, but wellness has evolved bringing forth a critical question.. "What does wellness now mean to onsite dining?" Well, it depends on who you ask. We incorporate conflicting definitions for wellness, creating confusion, complexity and undefined expectations.
