Sustainability

Preserving Our Planet's Resources

We are a leader in the dining industry when it comes to sustainability. Company-wide programs aim to reduce our environmental impact through lowered energy usage, decreased waste, and local sourcing.

Sometimes, small steps have a big impact. That’s where our EcoSteps program comes in. EcoSteps illustrate the progress we have made to address sustainable food service, green our dining operations, and expand our role as a socially responsible organization. Preserving our planet’s resources for future generations is of the utmost importance.

We took our first big EcoStep in 2002, when we developed our FarmSource program to put locally-produced products onto our guests’ plates. Since then, we’ve taken many more steps towards sustainability, including expanding FarmSource to over 120 local farms and over $23 million dollars in annual local purchases.
