Cafeteria Replacement

Cafeterias haven't changed in 50 years. Until Now.

Fooda brings a daily variety of local guest restaurants inside cafeterias. Named a Best Concept by Food Management Magazine, the Fooda model represents an important evolution of the traditional cafeteria that reduces overhead, increases participation, and delights employees with high quality, authentic food. The low-risk, on-trend solution has been embraced by companies across the country, like Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), Northern Trust, and the LA Times.

When we were planning for the space, we made the conscious decision to find a high-quality food and beverage provider that could provide unique choices. Finding the right fit was an 8-month journey, and Fooda was the result.
