Virginia Tech Dining Services wins food magazine award

BLACKSBURG -

Virginia Tech's newest dining hall -- Turner Place at Lavery Hall -- is the winner in the Best New Facility category of Food Management Magazine's 2013 Best Concept Awards competition.

The annual Best Concept Awards recognize exceptional achievement and innovation in key areas of noncommercial food service, as judged by the Food Management editorial staff.

Turner Place at Lavery Hall opened in fall 2012 and immediately became a popular campus dining center. The 35,000-square foot, 1,077-seat facility offers three nationally-branded and five internally-branded food outlets on two levels. Each concept has its own distinctive "look" unique to Turner Place at Lavery Hall.

This is the second time this year Virginia Tech's Dining Services has been lauded by Food Management. In its June 2013 issue, the magazine recognized Dining Services as Innovator of the Year.

During the MUFSO conference, Virginia Tech Dining Services team members will also take part in the 2013 Best Concepts Award winner panel discussion, moderated by John Lawn, editor-in-chief of Food Management, and featuring each of the 2013 Best Concept award winners, who will share best practices and lessons learned from their winning concept.

Food Management's editors based their award decisions on a variety of factors, ranging from the impact of a given program, its effectiveness in achieving targeted results, the impact it may have on others in the field, and the level of innovation it represents in a given noncommercial segment of the food service industry.
