The Hot Shoppe, where Mariott began, before food allergies were a concern

Our Work With Hospitality Titans

Marriott International upholds a long-standing tradition of the highest standards in the hospitality industry. From humble beginnings as an A&W Root Beer stand in 1927 to one of the largest global hospitality companies today, Marriott has been through a considerable evolution over the decades and has remained at the forefront of service and care throughout its growth. It’s a dynamic, exciting company that is constantly growing and furthering its potential in the hospitality industry. More about Marriott’s story

It only makes sense, then, that their determination to serve their customers would include the importance of catering to guests with food allergies or intolerances. Following several encounters with Betsy Craig, MenuTrinfo®’s CEO, at conferences and events, Doug Davis, Marriott’s Senior Director of Global Food Safety, saw the potential for a working relationship between the companies. That relationship began officially in April of 2017, with menu consulting at the Courtyard and Aloft brands of Marriott’s numerous properties.

Our partnership has flourished ever since. MenuTrinfo® initially helped to prepare Marriott for menu labeling, as well as working to develop reliable food allergen charts for use in some of  their hotel brands. We have since moved into nutrition analysis, menu identification, training for allergens, gluten-free dining and other intolerances through our flagship AllerTrain™ suite of courses. Additionally, our AllerTrain™ program is linked on Marriott’s internal training platform, which is also ANAB-accredited and #1 in the industry.

MenuTrinfo® is delighted to count Marriott International amongst our menu consulting and nutrition clients, and we’re excited to see what the future holds for our partnership. Doug Davis himself is highly encouraged by our relationship as well, once stating, “There are many companies that attempt to provide comprehensive solutions to food safety training, nutritional education, allergen training and regulatory compliance. Over the years Marriott International has searched for a partner that can deliver on these promises. We have finally found a company we call on for these issues.” We are proud of our work with Marriott International and excited to see what’s in store in the future.
