Luby’s to provide foodservice for Texas Medical Center in Houston

HOUSTON Luby's Inc. has signed a multiyear agreement with Baylor College of Medicine to provide culinary services for the school’s Texas Medical Center campus in Houston.

Luby’s, the 128-unit cafeteria chain based here, helped design the kitchens at the facility, which opened earlier this month.

Chris Pappas, president and chief executive of Luby’s, said: “Our culinary services initiative continues to gain traction as we work to provide food services for health care facilities. In addition to the Baylor College of Medicine contract, we operate six dining facilities in long-term acute facilities, and soon we will be announcing additional partnerships with acute care hospitals.”

Pappas said on-site health care foodservice is a natural extension of the company’s cafeteria business. He said it uses “our unique restaurant skill set for cafeteria-style dining as well as short-order foodservice for customer-care room delivery. This growth business presents several opportunities, which include contracting our services for a negotiated time period and a management fee.”
