FDA’s Nutrition Labeling Program Means Changes for Restaurant Chains

Dallas, TX (January 19, 2011) – DAVACO, Inc., the national leading provider of retail and restaurant services, recently announced that the company is available to assist restaurant chains with their high-volume rollouts and retrofits of interior and exterior menu boards in response to the FDA’s new nutrition/menu labeling program. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 requires restaurants and similar retail food establishments with 20 or more locations to list calorie content information for standard menu items on restaurant menus and menu boards.

“While the FDA is still finalizing implementation provisions, many restaurants are proactively integrating nutrition information on their menu boards and throughout their restaurants,” said Rick Davis, CEO, DAVACO. “At DAVACO, we specialize in executing high-volume programs, encompassing a broad range of scopes---from full-scale remodels to digital signage updates and the installation of marketing elements. Our nationwide structure allows our team to make changes in locations across the country quickly and our restaurant expertise gives us the ability to execute changes consistently, accurately and with minimal disruption to the restaurant and its customers.”

In addition, DAVACO’s ClearThread™ technology allows clients to oversee the progress of their menu board implementation, by offering 24-hour access to important project information via a secure online website. DAVACO’s field team provides regular updates, survey results, before/after photography, schedules and contacts, for each restaurant location.

“Because of the nature of the restaurant business, many of our clients’ programs involve thousands of locations and require aggressive implementation schedules,” said Davis. “ClearThread is just another way that DAVACO is able to simplify the complexities associated with high-volume executions and provide real solutions for our clients.”

DAVACO currently services a variety of nationwide retail and restaurant clients, representing concepts from QSR, casual, fast-casual, fine dining, entertainment and hospitality. The company, which is based in Dallas, Texas and has over 800 W-2 employees across the country, has been providing retail and restaurant services since 1990.
