Lakeside’s SuzyQ™ A Foodservice Solution for Healthcare Communities

By Carla Landi


Lakeside’s SuzyQ™ Cart System is the ideal solution for providing the very important, person-centered dining environment, popular with today’s better senior care communities. Senior living residents want to be more involved with their meal choices and more engaged with the service of their meals. Café style food prepared by top culinary professionals, flexible mealtimes, midday snack options, and menu customization options are among the top emerging trends being searched for by new residents.


The SuzyQ™ Cart System, equipped with individually controlled hot food wells, provides the opportunity to serve hot food quickly and efficiently at any point in the day. The results include happier and healthier residents, possible increases in new sign-ons, and a substantial decrease in food waste.


We are approaching the fastest growing foodservice market as waves of Boomers retire each year and enter their golden years. This particular generation also comes with very high expectations for senior living foodservice.  The food and beverage program offered can dramatically effect choices being made by potential residents, when choosing their home.


The sales of SuzyQ carts come with comprehensive staff training guide and implementation support from inventor Suzanne Quiring, RD, CDM who will help the community change their culture around mealtimes and this population in their community.
