Florida Fresh Dining introduces new food concepts, new technology and mobile ordering at UF

Big changes are underway for those who eat on campus at the University of Florida, as Florida Fresh Dining continues its expansion.

Over the summer, the University of Florida and their new food service provider, Chartwells Higher Education, introduced “Florida Fresh Dining,” bringing local food concepts to campus while refreshing dining locations and making the “Taste of Gainesville” a permanent fixture in the Reitz Union. Now, Florida Fresh Dining is looking to introduce free-standing ordering kiosks and expand its mobile ordering app to increase speed-of-service.

“We are excited about the changes that have already come to be, and those that are coming soon,” said Matt Mueller, Director of Food and Beverage Services at UF.  “We want to thank the campus community for their patience and for understanding that all changes cannot be made overnight and can cause some service disruptions,” he added. “We’ve had a great start to the Fall semester and look forward to experiencing great food, service, and innovative concepts as part of the Florida Fresh Dining program for many years to come.”
