Corporate Dietitian Role
Many large senior living companies have the position of Corporate Registered Dietitian, or something similarly named. These dietetic professionals, with years of schooling and experience, guide the policies and procedures of the company related to nutrition and its impact on patient and resident care. Their perspective can be invaluable to leadership and overall quality.
Crandall now brings the benefits of a Corporate Dietitian to any senior living company, regardless of size, and without the significant price tag. When you hire Crandall, you get experts in policy, regulations, menus, and more.
Regional/ Divisional Dietitians
Crandall is one of the only dietitian firms in the country with a national structure of regional and divisional dietitians. These leaders support the hundreds of Crandall dietitians in the field and provide personalized attention and support to our corporate customers.
Corporate Specific Forms, Policies and Training
Crandall often works with corporations that have their own established forms and policies. We gladly support their foodservice, dining, maintenance, and clinical processes. Crandall also partners with corporate leaders to provide effective trainings that uphold corporate standards. When requested, Crandall can evaluate your current systems and provide a detailed summary of changes needed to assure all state and federal guidelines are met.
Dietary Analytics/ Scored Reports
Data-driven decisions are not just for finance and marketing. Company leaders rely on Crandall’s quantitative reports of nutrition and dining operations as a powerful tool to improve performance.

Stand out from the crowd with menus that reflect your corporation’s objectives while also catering to regional and cultural differences.
