  • Meal of the Century

    • We celebrate our 100th anniversary with what we do best through our “Meal of the Century” contest. The contest called for company chefs to submit original, four-course menus that can tell our story over the last century through dishes inspired by special moments in our successful 100 years of history. The menus consisted of an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert. More than 75 submissions were received from locations around the world.
