The Culinary Institute Of America and Restaurant Associates Announce New Partnership Designed to Accelerate Innovation in Contract Foodservice Operations of the Future
Dec 3 14
The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and Restaurant Associates (RA) have formed a strategic partnership geared towards fostering future creativity, innovation, and 'intrapreneurial' thinking in the contract foodservice sector of the foodservice industry. In support of the CIA's capital campaign, Restaurant Associates and Compass Group have also made a substantial commitment to provide valuable financial assistance to students in pursuit of their professional degrees at the world's premier culinary college. Along with increasing student scholarships, the nexus of the partnership will be the CIA's new Student Commons, which is now under construction and scheduled to open in the summer of 2015. Located at the college's New York campus and designed under the direction of the world-renowned Adam Tihany, the new facility will take the concept of student dining to a new level. The Commons will feature several cooking and dining venues, a high-volume production teaching kitchen, a fresh market complete with green walls growing herbs and vegetables, a teaching micro-brewery done in partnership with Brooklyn Brewery, and a 'black box restaurant' in which CIA bachelor's students studying intrapraneurship will develop and market-test new restaurant concepts. RA brings a wide range of knowledge in foodservice operations to the new partnership, and is well-known for the premium food venues it provides to museums, performing arts centers, corporate dining operations, and educational facilities. The dining facility, named The Egg for its oval shape, will be operated by Restaurant Associates in partnership with the Education Division of the CIA.
