This article reports that a growing number of school foodservice operators in the U.S. have been considering take-out service as a growth option amid rising business costs. At the 30,000-student University of California, Davis, the dining services department has taken Sodexo's Smart Market grab-and-go concept a step further by offering a subset called Sizzle. At his secondary schools, Bill Janson of Concord New Hampshire Public Schools offers a variety of grab-and-go salads and wraps, which make up about 50% of his business.
