ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the "Food Service Director" 2008 College census which shows that labor cost continues to take the biggest part of the foodservice budget on college campuses in the U.S. Other findings of the census show that foodservice revenue rose 9%, to $1.627 billion, among the 100 colleges surveyed. Outsourcing of vending is becoming more common. 77% of colleges that offer vending contract out the service, versus 64% last year. Virtually all respondents have eliminated trans fat from at least some of their menu items.
