Resources

Our commitment to the our clients does not end at the opening of our dining service program. It is standard practice that our Vice President of Operations meets monthly with leadership to review all billing and financial issues. We believe in the strength of transparency from the beginning in creating a true partnership. This open forum of communication will create a foundation for what we hope will become a long-term business relationship. With your support, we will establish a Dining Advisory Council. During monthly meetings, clients and Dining Advisory Council members will meet with our director to let us know how we are performing and to discuss ideas, concerns, and issues in a forum that encourages open and honest discussion. Additionally, we will survey the dining communities each semester to determine areas for growth and opportunity.

Technology

Our technology solutions deliver the personalized experience your customers demand and are fully integrated for ease of operation by management. We leverage technology with digital menu boards, social media, online ordering, mobile apps and nutritional analysis of menu items, ensuring each guest has timely information on their mobile devices.

Standards

We set rigorous, measurable standards for every facet of our business—from the food we use, our sanitation standards, to our continual team member training. We commit ourselves to excellence every day in everything we do. Whether it is the Aladdin F.A.C.T. System (Flavor, Appearance, Consistency, Temperature), ServSafe training and standards, or our T.E.A.M.S. (Training, Effective selection, Assessment, Management by objective and Service) team member training program, Aladdin guarantees the highest standards day in and day out.

Sustainability

We work with our clients to achieve their sustainable purchasing initiatives—buying local, purchasing Fair Trade and using minority vendors. We support the local economy, offer outstanding variety and provide the freshest menu items possible. Our primary food supplier makes efforts to support local purchases and identifies local produce on their ordering website. They maintain rigid produce quality specifications that meet, or in most cases exceed, USDA standards to ensure the highest quality available.
 
In addition to sustainable purchasing, Aladdin also focuses on:
  • Food Waste and Food Waste Reduction
  • Reusable programs
  • Composting
