Fun with Foodservice License Plates

Why not let the world know you're foodservice proud?

Why not let the world know that you're foodservice proud? These folks in the foodservice industry sure do. But having that vanity plate can make for some interesting interactions.

Consider what happened to Paula Montgomery, child nutrition supervisor, Fairborn (OH) City Sc hools, a few years ago. Her license plate is “LNCH LDY.”

“This is embarrassing. I owned a Jag. I was at an Ohio Department of Education meeting regarding school nutrition programs,” Montgomery says. “The location was in a city north of my hometown and I was somewhat lost. As I sat at a stop sign to try and get a sense of direction, a young man who looked to be about 17 was willing to help me,” she says. “He was on a bike but could tell I was lost. He was a very nice, and stopped to give me directions. Then he said, ‘No problem, Lunch Lady! Boy…there must be a lot of money in corn dogs!’”
