As part of our “Grab and Go” (www.GrabandGo.org) and general healthy food service programming we created OfficeCafeterias.com. We have a 25-year history working with offices, factories and other businesses with food service and retail areas. Our history includes working with the trade associations and the Food Service Providers. We specialize in all of the important food service and retailing areas (The Cafeteria, The Micro Market, The Vending and The Wellness Programming).
As long term manufacturers and suppliers of food and beverage brands (retail, food service and healthcare) we have created specific programs for the food service and retail areas in a hospital, hotel, university, office, factory, active aging center and others.
Our features include Grab and Go, Healthy Voyager, and new Food Service and Beverage options. We have a broad mix of standard and healthy choices to choose from.
MEDIA COVERAGE OF HEALTHY FOOD PROGRAMS
A part of our ‘Cafeteria’ programming includes TV coverage of food service providers and independent operators offering innovative solutions to the demand for healthier options. Our TV show line-up includes Healthy Voyager (www.HealthyVoyager.com), Planet X (www.PlanetX.TV), Emotional Mojo (www.EmotionalMojo.com) and newer ones, Entrepreneur Magazine TV and Concierge TV.
We will be connecting with both food service providers, independent operators and food service distributors learning about their wellness and healthy eating campaigns.
Our Break Room TV (www.BreakRoomTV.com) was created to be an employee-centric TV network in break rooms (Employee Lounges, Lunch Rooms) nationwide. With entertaining content, employee training modules and especially wellness and eating healthy programming…

The team has 25 years experience in creating and introducing new products for cafeteria areas (universities, hospitals, offices, etc).
With our brand / manufacturing partners we are introducing new healthier choices for the cafeteria environment such as:
* Gluten Free Options
* Grab and Go Programming
* New Ethnic Choices
* Nutrition Calculators
Smaller companies or factories will have a breakroom (employee lounge) for its employees. Our team has helped create solutions for breakrooms looking for healthier choices for its employees. These solutions include better vending options, micro market concepts (more details below), wellness programs including wellness check kiosks, employee charity suggestions, coffee programs and more.
The team is creating its own breakroom marketing and ordering website that will talk about these solutions very soon.
The Micro Market
Micro Markets are unmanned stores that have all of the products that a C-Store has but in not manned by any personnel. Self checkout micro markets are the fastest growing segment in automatic merchandising today, carving a new niche in our nation’s retail landscape.
As a team we were innovators in the creation and supplying of the hotel pantries for a number of hospitality companies nationwide (www.HotelRetailGroup.com) we have a number of solutions (products, supply suggestions, etc) for operators looking to get into the business, manufacturers wanting to supply products and for existing customers that have micro markets already.
The Vending Area
The Out-of-Home team has vending broker partners who call on every university and college in the US. The new trend with healthy vending is very important to universities.
Our new www.Advendtures.com is our healthy vending marketing site creating new products for the industry.
Our other efforts include:
* Micro Markets (unmanned c-stores)
* Cashless Vending
The Sundry Shop
Sundry Shops are seperate stores (similar to a convenience store) that are in large office buildings or factories that have a wide variety of offerings ideal for the employees (food and beverage, snacks, greeting cards, gifts, lottery, health and beauty aids, stationary and more).
These sundry shops (sometimes also called lobby shops) are usually owned by outside partners using the same distributors and convenience stores. Our team has many solutions for getting products into stores.
An example of a sundry shop operator is Russell’s Convenience of Colorado who specialize in office building retail (www.russellsconvenience.net). Our own team is developing a Sundry Shop concept (www.SundryShops.com) coming soon.
