GAITHERSBURG, MD -- Sodexo's technology-focused FoD (Food on Demand) college campus dining concept was recognized by Nation's Restaurant News as the winner of one of five 2011 Hot Concepts Awards.

The program is customizable for each campus and includes whatever food the school chooses to offer. Guests order digitally from a touchscreen kiosk. Each dish is then individually prepared, and the customer is buzzed via smartphone or pager when the meal is ready.

Food on Demand is operating at six universities, including the University of Vermont in Burlington, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, Academy of Art in San Francisco, Northwestern University in Chicago, and Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. Topping the list of favorites are Waffles Diane with blueberries, Asian steak salad, grilled chicken pesto stromboli, and chocolate torte.

Sodexo's FoD concept was lauded for displaying bold tactics, outstanding creativity and strong performance in a persistently sluggish economy.
