ABSTRACT
The article highlights several food service business ideas. University of Massachusetts executive director of auxillary services Ken Toong said their decision to offer late-night delivery for students in the southwest Amherst, Massachusetts residential area enabled their business to see a 10,000 U.S. dollars increase in revenue. In Iowa State University, Nancy Levandowski decided to donate their leftover commissary sandwiches, salads and in-house bakery items to the local soup kitchen.
