Meal Plan Development
Meal plans are the backbone in any campus dining program and they can be a key influencing factor when students decide whether or not to live in on-campus housing and/or to participate in the campus dining program. PKC can help your campus develop flexible, customer-friendly and modern (versus old-school) meal plan programs that eliminate dissatisfaction, grow participation and add significant value to your campus dining program.
Porter Khouw Consulting offers the following meal plan development:
- 24/7 Anytime Dining Plans
- Residential Dining Plans
- Commuter Student Dining Plans
- Value-Added Plan Enhancements
- Meal Plan Revenue Projections
Over the years, we have found that many campus administrators consistently undervalue their foodservice contracts and enter into agreements that leave significant program opportunities and capital investment dollars on the table. PKC will work as your independent agent to facilitate a proven competitive bid process and negotiate on your behalf in order to secure a new foodservice contract based on the optimum, next generation dining program. Through our proven process, we’ve significantly improved and expanded the student dining experience while profoundly increasing the financial return for our clients. Our process takes approximately three to six months and has worked 100% of the time.
We believe that it’s critical to begin the operator selection services process by completing independent and objective market research on your campus. That research allows us to develop the optimum dining program for your campus and to determine what your financial opportunity may be. We articulate this in a detailed and well-developed RFP that requires all potential operators to bid on what the best program is for your campus or organization.
We can provide clients, architects and other planning partners with creative and contemporary, yet functional servery, dining room and kitchen designs that appeal to a wide variety of customers. Our design team is led by PKC Senior Vice President Albin Khouw who has more than 35 years of foodservice design experience. PKC utilizes the REVIT Building Design Suite that combines Building Information Modeling (BIM) and CAD tools to help us design, visualize, and simulate our clients’ projects more efficiently
