DJ Segraves and Ava Wojcik were proud to attend the 38th Annual Alabama Food Service & Nutrition Expo. Breakfast in the classroom was one of the hottest topics at the conference, held at the Montgomery Convention Center. Luckily, PCS has many different ways to assist districts in getting breakfast to more students in a short amount of time.

Our Lightning touch screens provides portability without sacrificing a large screen for carts or grab-and-go stations. Our vending machines allow students to get food quickly in remote locations. We have recently added features to our roster mode that allows teachers to ring up breakfast in their classrooms.

Ava, our TrakNOW Implementation Specialist, took the time to speak to both customers and prospects about the TrakNOW (Back Office) program. TrakNOW handles Inventory, Production, Nutritional Analysis, Menu Planning, Warehouse, Central Kitchen, as well as Ordering and Receiving. If you need to tighten your budget and get food cost under control PCS can help make it happen!

Becki Rogers, Regional Sales Director and Ava Wojcik, TrakNOW Implementation Specialist enjoyed spending quality time with our Georgia friends at the 61st Annual GSNA Conference in beautiful Savannah, GA. As a member of the Industry Advisory Board as well as Golf Tournament Planning Committee, Becki had been planning for this event since last year! It all came together beautifully.

The Golf Tournament was just revived this year for GSNA after taking a few years off due to lack of participation. The Golf Tournament Planning Committee exceeded every goal that was set and had over 50 participants, 19 hole sponsors, more volunteers than they could manage and most importantly, raised over $4,500 for the GSNA Foundation. These funds will cover scholarships for our GSNA members and their families.

The exhibit was very well attended and Becki and Ava enjoyed meeting new people that we hope to add to the PCS family in the near future as well as getting to spend time with our valued, long time customers. Paula Deen, celebrity chef even spoke at one of our general sessions.

We wrapped up the conference with an evening of Low Country Elegance, including a beautiful dinner and the passing of the gavel from the outgoing GSNA Executive Board members to the new members. As always, we appreciated the opportunity to support the association and treasure the relationships with both school and industry members.

PCS Regional Sales Director, Becki Rogers and Operations Director, Tony Diers attended SNA of South Carolina Industry Conference, enjoying a few days in beautiful Charleston.

Tony and Becki provided a presentation on using technology for alternative serving locations. At PCS we understand the challenges you face in trying to keep your participation numbers up. Kids can’t always get to the cafeteria or have enough time to eat with shortened lunch periods, so you have to be able serve when and where they are.

Throughout the country, PCS provides portable touch screens and tablets for grab-n’-go carts in the hallways, food trucks and vending machines. New from PCS, teachers can now record breakfast meals from their own classroom computer. This is a simple and cost effective way to provide technology to account for breakfast meals in the classroom without having to print paper rosters, checking boxes or data entry.

Talk to your account representative about how to provide FASTrak student breakfast rosters to your teachers on their PC.
