Product testing

We started “Tuesday Tryouts” in all three of our residential dining facilities. On selected Tuesdays, we work with our prime vendor and its brokers to test new items and ideas in our residence hall dining facilities. The students get to “like” it on our residential dining Facebook page. We have set up a direct link to the page with a QR code that we have on table tents. It also gives instant feedback to the brokers that are promoting their new ideas and products. We have already added items to our menu rotation as a result.
