LZX Founder Melanie Nelson featured on CEO/CFO

Melanie Nelson, founder and CEO of Learning ZoneXpressWe were so excited to learn that Melanie was interviewed for the CEO/CFO website! They asked a series of great questions geared at helping to share Melanie’s expertise and strategies for success with other CEOs and CFOs. Here’s an excerpt from the interview…

CEOCFO: In what areas are you seeing the most growth today?

Ms. Nelson: School foodservice. We had tremendous growth last year due to a USDA mandate that required school foodservices to have “front of the line” education. We designed a dry erase board for the lunch line that has areas to write menu choices by food group, which would be easily changed every day. In schools, competitive foods, usually junk foods are going to be regulated by new standards starting in July 2014. Vending machines have to have healthier choices, as well as the a la carte, where kids often get to choose which foods they want all will be subject to changes. We are working to develop resources to make that a smooth transition, while helping educate students and other stakeholders on the importance of making healthy choices.
