“The Gordon Food Service Case Study Competition was an amazing opportunity brought to Bethune- Cookman University. I enjoyed participating in the competition because it gave my group and I insight to issues that the company faced post pandemic. Being able to relay our findings to the senior leadership team was very exciting as well. Hearing feedback from them as well as praise was inspiring. Thank you again Gordon Food Service.”
