Dining is a high priority for prospective senior living residents and a major driver of resident satisfaction. The days of monolithic, formal dining rooms and kitchens are long gone. Less formal dining options - Café, Bistro, Wine Bar - will continue to increase in demand. Space allocation to grab-n-go and fast-casual concepts will increase, and the large formal dining room will shrink. This dining decentralization will require satellite kitchens to move into these smaller dining venues, giving customers what they really want: a variety of restaurant experiences offering a variety of healthy food options. While this fragmentation can be challenging to retrofit in existing facilities, new communities will plan for it from the get-go.
