“Unidine’s services have allowed us to offer enhanced dining choices and greater flexibility to better meet the needs and preferences of our residents. We have a great partnership and are glad to have Unidine as part of our homes.”
“A business relationship is one thing. But Morrison Living has some of the most dedicated people I know. This has contributed to our successful partnership.”
“Morrison Living helped us build community among our nursing staff and made us feel like we were a part of something special.”
“Unidine has been an essential partner in helping us go from a closed dining room during the pandemic to re-opening in a beautiful, new, updated space. They participated and supported us every step of the way and even attended our grand re-opening!”
“Transitioning our staff to CCL, while a significant decision, benefits the staff and the organization. CCL is the domain expert and is able to ‘own’ the dining experience more wholistically which creates a seamless operational experience for our residents.”
Many partner organizations have suppliers that are local favorites, and our culinary teams work to source food locally whenever possible for the freshest dining experience available. If a local supplier is requested, the resources available to you with CCL Hospitality Group means our supply chain experts will initiate a vetting and approval process to ensure that the supplier complies with quality standards, safe food handling practices, competitive pricing and delivery requirements. This allows your in-house team to focus on other areas of the organization.
No. Cost is driven by client menu preferences and overall scope of food service rather than by the cost of goods and labor. Most client facilities are already staffed to transform a ‘can-to-pan’ program to one that requires fresh ingredients and daily fresh cooking. Our staff is trained to cook with fresh ingredients while following standardized recipes.
Additionally, there is a labor cost already baked into the cost of pre-prepared, pre-cooked convenience foods. Collaborating with the right outsourcing partner means you no longer need to pay those costs and the efficiency can be redirected at improving other aspects of your dining program for increased resident satisfaction that drives demand for occupancy. For example, with Unidine, fresh whole chickens are purchased, and the culinary teams utilize different parts of the chicken for daily menu items while bones and trimmings are used to flavor sauces, stocks, and gravies to increase cost effectiveness.
A partnership with CCL Hospitality Group means you have access to the largest food and support services procurement company in the United States. This means your community is enabled with our relationships with thousands of suppliers and distributors across the country.
It starts with identification. We request a list of all food service budget categories prior to the formal assessment process. The list will be revisited several times prior to the development and delivery of a proposal. All relevant cost categories will be budgeted against historical data from across our facilities and industry standards. Tracking is the next key step. CCL will ensure that budgeted expenses align with client expectations and an established scope of service. Financial performance is routinely monitored so that variances and adjustments are data driven.
Consistently seeking future cost reductions is also an ongoing part of the process throughout the partnership. We conduct formalized quarterly business reviews that include forward-thinking initiatives and recommendations to positively impact operational and financial performance.
Use of the latest hospitality industry technology is also key to how we manage costs. Depending on the needs of the client, our own proprietary information management system is available which includes menu management, production, inventory, suppliers and staffing.
There are multiple layers to our approach to talent recruitment and retention. CCL always looks internally first to determine which managerial candidates are best suited to the role. The candidate pool is then expanded to include external candidates through outbound marketing efforts and strategic talent acquisition geotargeting.
Every candidate, both internal and external, is vetted through our competency validation process to determine how well they align with the expectations and requirements of the respective client. The client also participates in the selection process to define the management role and type of manager they believe will be the best fit for their organization and culture. This collaborative process narrows down the candidates to a final selection.
Competitive salaries and benefits play a key part in retaining top talent. However, one of the most important aspects that enables us to develop and retain this top talent is our emphasis on culture. Across CCL, our client partnerships are successful because we are guided by our values to treat others with respect, helping team members grow, responding to customer needs with a sense of urgency, and empowering our team members.
Our partner communities always have the option to select the labor model that works best for them to meet their unique business needs.
These options include:
We offer personalized training that is tailored to your organization's needs and is ongoing. To ensure success, our trainers begin with a skills assessment and develop a customized plan for each team member.
When you choose to partner with CCL Hospitality Group, your team gains access to a wide range of employee resources and career advancement opportunities. Our onsite Dining Services Director and Executive Chef provide continuous support and training throughout the duration of the partnership. They also administer tests for annual certifications in roles that require them.
In addition to on-the-job training, we supplement our program with online training modules that cover culinary, hospitality, health and hygiene, sanitation, and safety. Although this training may take some time, the short-term impact on food quality, hospitality, and employee engagement is noticeable to your residents and staff.

The time it takes to get our services up and running depends on the specific needs of each client partnership. We may start with smaller, quick-win improvements such as swapping out printed signs for digital menu boards and adjusting menus to better meet the preferences and nutritional needs of residents.
For a more extensive transformation, we typically work on a timeline of 4 to 6 months, which may involve upgrading kitchen equipment and dinnerware to take things to the next level. At the heart of our approach is a commitment to customized recommendations that fit the unique needs of each client. We'll work closely with you to identify key areas for improvement and make sure everything is done within a responsible budget.
As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression. We understand how important it is to make a lasting impression during the transition and opening of your facility. That's why we ensure we have the necessary resources on the ground from day one to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Our unique methodology for transitioning new partner communities includes managing the transition of employees with respect and dignity, implementing core programs and standards, creating clear communication processes, providing full-circle feedback, and ensuring rigor around following proven, standardized processes.
Our team will be there every step of the way to ensure a smooth and effective transition of your dining program without service interruption.
