Has the institution adopted sustainability policies or guidelines for food service franchisees operating on campus?:

A brief description of the guidelines for franchisees:

Franchisees operate independently of the University.

As part of the five year Strategic Plan, one of the initiatives was to implement biodegradable, compostable “green” packaging for all of our products, where feasible. National brands (franchisees) supplied information about packaging changes they have made or were looking to make in the near future to help support this initiative. Responses's included Nathan’s, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Peet’s and Chick-Fil-A. Sbarro did not have any changes at that time or anticipate any changes.
