Today, with more than 100 locations nationwide, from restaurants, to sports and entertainment venues, our reach is greater than ever. We continue to believe that, as we have grown, so have our opportunities to give back to everyone we touch, from guests, to communities and our environment. Together, with our partners, we can have an incredible impact on the world we share today and in the future.
Respect for the world around us, compassion for the communities we share and the health and wellness of our guests have always played a role in how we make business decisions. From spearheading recycling efforts at all of our locations, to smart, eco-friendly servingware choices, we have led the charge on creating sustainable operations. In tune with the needs of our guests, we eliminated transfats in our fryers and desserts and developed menus that offer fresh and healthy options. And, of course, we have a lasting legacy of rolling up our shirtsleeves to volunteer our time and share smiles with people and families in need. But we know that there is much more that we can do.
Building on our history of corporate responsibility and leveraging our passion for giving back, in 2011, we expanded Levy Cares to encompass our care for the Environment, the Community and our Guests. Bringing the ethos of Levy Cares to our broader corporate conscience is our way of making sure we deliver that same level of passion to social responsibility.
What is most important for us to remember is that this is a journey, an ongoing process as we work side-by-side with our partners to raise the bar on socially responsible business practices. Levy Cares has always been about enriching our communities and being a force for positive change. This new era of the program opens new doors for us to expand our impact and work to make this world a better place for us and generations to come.
