Bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion rings, jalapeno peppers, all nestled in an out-of-the-oven fresh, Kaiser bun.
Build your own burger is the new saying in The Core, at the Welland campus, as new food choices are popping up on the menu.
The Core is offering a new menu and “we had great feedback already, I feel it’s working well,” says Jennifer Marasco, general manager of the student centres.
So, it’s goodbye to the Philly steak wrap and some other longtime offerings but with all of the new menu items that doesn’t seem to bother students.
Some of the new options came together over the summer.
The build your own burger and poutine are just a few of the changes Marasco has made.
“I don’t think we’re going to change it again unless we add more healthful options and international dishes.”
But for now the new items are selling.
“Students like the poutine and the BYOB,” says Mike Macintyre, bar manager of The Core.
Marasco says some of the more healthful options that might be added over the year are rice bowls, wontons and edamomay.
“With every year it’s a new challenge with new students.”
Most of the changes followed from summer conferences specifically for student centre managers. One in particular was the Campus Hospitality Management Association.
“While we were there we stopped at an off-campus food truck that inspired the new poutine on the menu,” says Marasco.
The student centre personnel encourage students to drop off any suggestions in the suggestion box on the bar.
With the success of the new menu, chances are the recent changes are here to stay.
