What They Say

“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!

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.
