HOW IT ALL BEGAN

CONTRACT FOOD SERVICE

In 1928, American Cable and Wireless decided to include an employee cafeteria in their new office building. Providing employees with a cafeteria was an innovation in itself in 1928. However, the vision of Lawrence Lessing trumped even the cafeteria idea. Lawrence, already operating a nascent multi-unit food service operation out of the Lessing commissary in Jones Lane, presented American Cable with a proposition. Rather than American Cable executives having to manage a large cafeteria with all the headaches inherent in such an operation, Lessing’s would manage it for them on a contract basis. For a fee, Lawrence and his staff would take care of everything. With that one creative impulse, the contract food service industry was born in New York City. The Lessing innovation gene had struck again, and Lessing’s was off and running in an entirely new industry.

LESSING'S FOOD SERVICE MANAGEMENT TODAY

Lessing's is one of the Northeast's leading providers of food service management. Dedicated to innovation, sustainability and nutrition, their brand spans over 100 locations – including corporate dining, educational institutions, private and public clubs, and vending accounts. In honor of the 125th anniversary, throughout April, diners at each location will enter for a chance to win a golden ticket, a $125 gift card to the café. Winners will be chosen at the end of the month.
