Back to School with Exceptional Customer Service!

It’s that time of year again! It’s back to school time and instructors from John C. Stalker Institute (JSI) of Food and Nutrition are traveling to school nutrition programs across Massachusetts to deliver professional development.

On Aug 30th, JSI presented an Exceptional Customer Service workshop at Thomas Elementary School in Arlington. The workshop highlighted the importance of excellent customer service, applying Guest Standards to challenging situations, and creating a plan to deliver great customer service in your cafeteria.
