72 • FOODSERVICE EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES • NOVEMBER 2018 facility design p r o j e c t o f t h e m o n t h Customers dining at Prairie Mill and particularly those sitting at a counter with eight bar stools can see cookline production through a window. "We wanted to create a warm, quiet, calm place to dine while capturing the activity visible in the kitchen," Moller says. Within 45 minutes after placing their orders with a call center associate, patients receive their meals on trays that keep food hot using a plate and pellet system. Patients select meals from a six-page menu listing 45 menu items. Selections include build-your-own breakfast sandwiches, made-to-order eggs, baked goods, soups, deli sandwiches, entree salads and desserts. They also can select homemade macaroni and cheese, casseroles, and entrees such as stir-fry, country pot roast, soft shell tacos, -our-dusted sole and Swedish meatballs. "We design our menu to cross-utilize recipes at more than one location," Galloway says. "We're always designing menus that allow us to „nd a balance between producing really good food quickly. The cook-chill allows us to rotate menu items and keep the menu items fresh and varied." The kitchen contains a potwashing and dishwashing area. Prairie Mill restaurant and room service use china dishes, while Fresh Market uses compostable containers and other disposable serviceware. "Although this was not a LEED project, all efforts were made to be as ef„cient as possible and conserve energy and water," Moller says. The design team members agree that the success of the project, with its intense planning and daunting phasing, was largely due to the strong relationships among the team mem- bers. Under Gibson's direction, the design team advanced a contemporary healthcare foodservice paradigm by eliminat- ing the food court-style servery and replacing retail dining with a sit-down and a casual restaurant, and consolidating production for maximum ef„ciency.
