In these unprecedented times amid the uncertainty brought on by COVID-19 pandemic, NexDine is working closely with new and existing clients to provide leadership, guidance, and expertise in preparation for the eventual re-opening of their businesses. As we navigate the new landscape of dining services, the safety and well-being of our customers, clients, employees, and vendors will continue to be our top priority. We are reviewing our long-established food and safety protocols and taking the necessary steps to remain aligned with directives from local and state boards of health, the Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization. We have implemented stringent preventative measures and service delivery modifications as part of NexDine’s commitment to provide our customers with an exceptional dining experience in a safe environment. Some of the steps NexDine is taking include:

    • Mandatory daily employee health screening prior to starting work
    • Removing self-service menu items and condiments
    • Transforming traditional self-service options to prepared-to-order offerings
    • Eliminating reusable cups and servicewares
    • Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitation in high traffic areas
    • Daily employee hygiene in-service training
    • Mandated hand-washing every 15 minutes regardless of task

We will continue to innovate and drive technology in all of the markets we serve to adapt to the new normal with initiatives such as:

    • Enhanced mobile ordering platforms with options to deliver to offices, classrooms and centralized locations throughout the campuses
    • NexDine mobile app
    • Pre-ordering and self-checkout kiosks and micromarkets
    • Room-service-style snack and beverage carts for classroom-to-classroom and office-to-office delivery
    • Contactless payment options such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, EMV, and Tap cards
    • Modified COVID-preventative catering services featuring individually wrapped offerings bagged and boxed lunches, home meals to-go, and fresh farm-to-table products for take-home.

As new information becomes available, preparations and action plans will evolve and NexDine will continue to serve as a trusted partner and advisor to each of our clients.
