It’s Good for Businesses to Do Business with Structural Concepts

According to Cook Unity, with cost-effectiveness a growing concern, some in-house food service providers and large office cafeteria real estates are too expensive to maintain, especially when employees have embraced more flexible work models. Conversely, lack of variety, rising prices, and lack of authenticity are cited as the main reasons why there is a decline in employee cafeteria participation.

Still, more companies are investing in some form to support kitchen & dining spaces to benefit employees and drive engagement.  Structural Concepts has long been out in front of this movement by providing adaptable, multi-purpose merchandising options ranging from full service to grab & to go to micromarkets that fit any space and adhere to any onsite requirements to display fresh food selections and drive sales.

By helping businesses rethink their foodservice programs, Structural Concepts can streamline employee dining room traffic flow as well as provide surpluses to food deserts on corporate campuses with a variety of solutions.   

The range of applications includes visually appealing service cases of different capacities that complement existing menus and visually interact with customers providing a high level of service and satisfaction.  Also available is a full complement of self-service options including wall units, endcaps, islands, mobile models, and undercounter units that utilize valuable cafeteria space.  


The manufacturer can also reduce the need for additional staffing while still increasing foodservice participation with customizable solutions that are designed with busy employees in mind with a portfolio of merchandisers that stimulate sales by offering a variety of grab & go options to accommodate modern consumer’s fast-paced lifestyle and desire to make speedy selections and transactions.
