NEW ORLEANS, La., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Piccadilly Restaurants, LLC is expanding on the success of its food service division in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. On Tuesday, July 31 from 6-8pm at the 2222 Clearview Pkwy location in Metairie, Piccadilly will host an Open House dinner for area businesses and educational institutions. A second Open House will be held on Thursday, August 2 from 6-8pm at 3332 South Sherwood Forest Blvd in Baton Rouge.

During the open houses, Piccadilly's Corporate Chef and Operations Executives will be on hand to discuss Piccadilly Food Service solutions that are provided to various industries including education, business, senior care, healthcare, and emergency response.

Piccadilly Food Service has a thriving operations model throughout the Southeast with over 70 food service operations, of which 25 accounts are in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas, including the cafeteria and food service needs for Catholic High in Baton Rouge, Kehoe-France Schools in Metairie and Covington, Crescent City Surgical Centre in Metairie, as well as emergency response contracts with the American Red Cross and state of Louisiana.

"Piccadilly Food Service is rooted in the same principle of guest satisfaction that our restaurants were built upon," says Tom Sandeman, Piccadilly CEO. "When combined with the level of customization we bring to a food service account, it's a recipe for success that benefits both our clients and their customers."

Beginning in the 2012-13 school year, Piccadilly Food Service will begin working with several new partners including St. Louis King of France in Metairie, E.D. White in Thibodeaux, and Magnolia School in New Orleans.  With a focus on taste and nutrition, these new partners will also benefit from an experienced and well-trained management team who can relate and respond to the diverse needs of each school.

"Piccadilly Food Service options really worked with what we were looking for in providing wholesome meals for our students," said Pamela Schott, St. Louis King of France Principal.  "We are looking forward to a great partnership."

As part of the Piccadilly Food Service community commitment, the company will also announce partnerships with local food banks in hopes of driving donations for the food pantries to ensure that no child is without a well-balanced meal this summer.
