Kevin & Traci Short
Opaa! Food Management is proud to have been serving the nutritional needs of students since 1978. In memory of Kenneth L. Short, founder of Opaa! Food Management, Kevin & Traci Short established a scholarship for students planning a career in the food service/hospitality industry. Opaa! is a common Greek expression for Hurrah! Ken first heard “Opaa!” from one of his early co-workers, a joy-filled man of Greek heritage. The enthusiastic, celebratory nature of the word encapsulated the spirit Ken envisioned for his new company. The company continues to bring a feeling of Opaa! to all they do.
