Southern’s main focus in 2014 was expanding its footprint in B&I, a strategy facilitated by a number of new contracts in that segment. The company also expanded its presence in the military and government segments and plans to continue pursuing opportunities in those areas in 2015.

On the culinary front, nutritional awareness remains a prominent concern for B&I customers and is Southern’s priority for menu development with new categories added to the Smart Cuisine program (Heart Smart, Carb Smart, etc.), as well as all new graphic icons to be used on all promotions, menus and recipe sites. There are also new nutritional kiosks to provide information and allow customers to make healthful choices when they order.
