Eat'n Park Sustainability

Eat'n Park Hospitality Group is a leader in the dining industry when it comes to sustainability. Company-wide programs aim to reduce our environmental impact through lowered energy usage, decreased waste, and local sourcing.

Sometimes, small steps have a big impact. That's where our EcoSteps program comes in. EcoSteps illustrate the progress we have made to address sustainable food service, green our dining operations, and expand our role as a socially responsible organization. Preserving our planet's resources for future generations is of the utmost importance.

We took our first big EcoStep in 2002, when we developed our FarmSource program to put locally-produced products onto our guests' plates.  Through this program, we've partnered with local farms, dairies, and artisans to allow us to serve the highest quality, locally-produced food to our guests. Our local purchases put millions of dollars back into the communities we serve.

FarmSource continues to expand, but we've also taken many other significant steps toward sustainability.  Composting, recycling, use of cage-free eggs and rBGH/rBST-free milk, and the construction of the first LEED-certified restaurant in the city of Pittsburgh are just a few of the other strides we've made among our family of brands.
