A couple of years ago, Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo., had a problem similar to that faced by many other universities: how to keep students from going off campus to eat. The school had a residential dining facility and some retail but nothing like the kinds of commercial choices favored by today’s college students. So the school and its foodservice partner, Pedestal Foods, decided to do something about it.

By converting a residential dining venue into a retail food court with five high-impact brands, Lindenwood University has grown its onsite foodservice sales by 8 percent in one year.
