CulinArt Opens the Doors to a Tech-Driven, Food-First Dining Program in Stamford, CT

STAMFORD, CONN., March 22, 2021 – CulinArt opened dining services at Charter Communications with three points of service, a Welcome Bag of snacks and treats dropped on 467 desks, and a cupcakes-and-cider toast allowing customers to meet our management team, including General Manager Diane Russo and Executive Chef Lindsay Romain. Charter, the provider of Spectrum phone, cable and Internet services, is CulinArt’s newest corporate dining account. A former tenant at One Stamford Forum, CulinArt’s CFE (Centers for Excellence) account just a few blocks away, many Charter employees were already keen on our quality food programs and hospitality-focused service, so when Charter moved to its brand new building on Washington Ave., CulinArt was a natural fit.

Our opening day program featured the full-service Charter Café, with an expansive Tuscan station, grill-to-order menu and a rotation of on-trend micro concepts at the Action station. Just one floor above is Craft Sandwiches, Salads and Bowls, with a robust menu of chef-crafted options and a full craft-your-own menu. The self-checkout Market is stocked with a variety of premium packaged snacks, bottled beverages, and a full line of CulinArt’s signature Quik Piks.

Customers place Café and Craft orders at one of the many Nextep order/pay kiosks or via the Eatify app, with one cashier-register in the Café for traditionalists or those looking to pay with cash. The technology allows guests to browse menus, customize orders, and schedule pickup, all in a safe, contactless environment. The 24/7 Market offers guests the use of Eatify Scan & Pay or a self-checkout register.

This is a multi-year project that will add 2 additional Markets, Pure Juice Bar and a barista bar over the next 12-18 months, and as population increases in the Charter Towers.

What our clients are saying

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“I wanted to let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”
