When Quality Counts, Count On Us
Our food systems programs listed below ensure MMI Dining provides quality food services with variety for our clients while controlling costs.
Back-of-the-House Systems That Perfect Quality Food Services
All food service products and supplies will be received and checked in at the kitchen dock and stored immediately. Any products of questionable quality and/or not meeting MMI Dining standards will be refused.
eSysco – Ordering/Receiving System
The eSysco system provides online ordering from our Prime Vendor. It also develops receiving logs, order guides, and purchasing reports.
MMI Dining utilizes this back-of-the-house tool for all dining locations to ensure correct production of food items, preventing overproduction and waste. Nothing gets produced in the kitchen without a production worksheet.
MMI Dining’s cross-function training ensures a quality food service program. All of our employees are cross-trained to perform various functions and job duties throughout the food service program. Our cross-function training program also provides promotional opportunities for each of our people.
Menus and Standards
We implement Standardized Recipes into the operation— MMI Dining’s culinary recipe program. The use of recipes ensures our guests are receiving correct portions and, most importantly, consistent quality every time. We understand that each and every property will have individual likes and dislikes, and we will cater to the tastes of your visitors. For that reason, we will always allow for favorite recipes to be served. At the same time, tastes and preferences can vary by region, so constantly accept feedback to incorporate your ideas and wishes into the menu variety.
