Greek Life is Growing Nationwide. Is Your Kitchen Keeping Up?

If you’re a member, advisor, or employee of a national fraternity or sorority, you likely already know that membership is growing at unprecedented rates. In fact, the National Panhellenic Conference, or NPC, reports that undergraduate sorority membership was more than 418,000 during the 2017 academic year — up almost 9% from the year prior. The North American Interfraternity Conference reports a similar trend in growth on campuses nationwide, as well.

As a company that was founded by a fraternity member and now supports Greek Life organizations at campuses like University of Maryland, University of Alabama, Cornell, Emory, and more, we are proud that fraternity and sorority membership continues to flourish. That said, with more people comes more logistical concerns.  The secret to conquering those logistics–reliable wifi, and good food!

So, how can Gill Grilling’s culinary services for Greek Life enhance and simplify your chapter’s membership experience? Keep reading for ways in which our services are helping fraternities and sororities stay ahead of the curve on campuses nationwide.

A competitive edge during recruitment season. If you’re an alumni member of a fraternity or a sorority, then you know there are many considerations that go into selecting the chapter that’s right for you. You are experts in leadership and the culture of your organization.  But prospective members also want a good housing experience. Our expert chefs and kitchen management mean that the chapter house can become a home.

Providing options to those with allergies. The CDC reports that the prevalence of food allergies in children increased by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011, and 40 percent of those who suffer are allergic to more than one food. As allergy issues become more prevalent, it’s important for college campuses to adapt. At Gill Grilling, we’re proud to lead the industry by providing allergy-safe options on all of our chapter menus, often at no additional cost.

Compliance management. On a National level, as well as campus-by-campus, regulations are rapidly redefining what it means to be an employer, and what it means to provide safe food.

With almost two decades of experience within the food industry, we stay one step ahead of possible challenges before they occur. We provide exhaustive compliance research, administrative support, and risk reduction.
