Erickson Living successfully serves meals to over 23,000 residents each year across 70 dining venues. When providing menu options, the opportunities for creativity and originality are endless, however the dining program has not significantly changed since Charlestown opened over 30 years ago.
Erickson Living is ready to evolve our Dining Program to meet the desires of today’s residents and position dining as a market differentiator for future residents. This will require a focus on the fundamentals and a culture of Operational Excellence – one that creates an environment in every kitchen and dining venue that supports the highest culinary models while fostering innovative and creative cuisines.
Simply put, the goal is: “Fresh, made-to-order, resident focused menu offerings; executed at the moment of service that personalizes the culinary experience, in smaller, distinctive venues to deliver an exceptional dining experience.”
With this is mind, Oak Crest’s Dining Services team has made it their mission to help residents better understand the new Signature Dining process through focus groups, call-in shows on Channel 973, and Town Hall Meetings with residents. One such Town Hall meeting will be coming up next week and Oak Crest TV will bring it to you live as it happens.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, June 16th at 10:00 AM in John Erickson Hall. The meeting will also be broadcast live on Channel 973 as part of Oak Crest Now. The meeting will also rebroadcast at 2 PM, 7 PM, 9 PM, and 12 AM, then it will be available the next day at www.oakcresttv.com.
