We believe that good food is a powerful thing. Good food takes people on a journey and creates lasting relationships. We think differently. We create connections. We see things globally. We roll up our sleeves. We are passionate.
“They listen and respond to our needs”
Fresh Ideas has been a true and valuable partner for Maryville University. They listen, respond to our needs, and work with us to craft a unique dining experience to best serve our students. Our students come first and they understand this. Their innovative approach has allowed us to grow and deliver a truly diverse and tailored dining experience for our campus. They continue to amaze me with their forward thinking and continued commitment to excellence.
“Their service has always been of highest quality.”
Ranken Technical College has been partners with Fresh Ideas for over 15 years. Their service has always been of highest quality. My experience with our site manager, cooks, and cashiers up to the executive team has been dedication to the client. Another strong aspect of Fresh Ideas is catering. I have received rave reviews from employees and outside groups on the quality of food and presentation. In addition, Fresh Ideas always receives positive reviews on the student surveys.
“Fresh Ideas is part of the CMU family!”
Fresh Ideas has been a great partner for Central Methodist University. In the spring of 2000, CMU was looking for something different in food service. We took a leap of faith and went with this new company promoted as Fresh Ideas. Each year they continue to develop new ideas and innovative ways to serve our students. All employees take an interest in the operations and are always available to listen to our needs. Fresh Ideas is part of the CMU family!
“We have noticed increased usage of our dining services”
Every day, Fresh Ideas honors their promise to provide a variety of high-quality fresh foods to Park University. Through our partnership, we have improved the student experience through our food services offerings, and have also noticed increased usage of our dining services by University employees. Students, faculty and staff constantly thank me for bringing Fresh Ideas to campus.
“I am proud to bring donors to eat with our students”
Parents want to see where their students study, sleep, and eat. Fresh Ideas exceeds, not just meets, that need. Their staff care for and about our students and bring real flair to each meal. I am proud to bring donors to eat with our students, I can think of no higher praise.
We understand that food creates memories and changes the way we feel. Our dining experiences and fresh food bring people together.
