Editor’s Note: Welcome to One On One With, Food Management’s podcast. Every two weeks we’ll share an intimate conversation between an FM editor and an industry icon or thought leader.

We’ll cover topics from hiring, new concepts, consumer trends, management and menu development. Or hear how an operator is increasing participation or meeting changing customer expectations. These one-on-one interviews provide peer learning at its best.

This marks our third podcast, with Jim McGrody, of UNC REX Healthcare in Raleigh, N.C. Check back in in two weeks for our next edition of One On One With, and find more podcasts here.
