“The sandwiches are fresh and filling, and the addition of an ingredient like chorizo makes them stand out from the usual breakfast items like bacon and sausage,” Karen Kourkoulis, chef/manager at the Passport Café in the Carole Weinstein International Center at the University of Richmond, in Virginia, says. “The best way to entice diners to try something new is to simply talk to them, explain a certain ingredient or give a little history of where a certain dish originated.” 

Ingredients

3 oz. gable 2# liquid eggs table ready
½ oz. Spanish dry-cured chorizo sausage
1 oz. Muenster cheese sliced
1 telera frozen bread sliced

Steps

  1. Make 3-ounce omelet seasoned with salt and pepper. Let cool.
  2. To assemble sandwich, add ½ ounce sliced Spanish dry-cured chorizo, 1-ounce slice of Muenster cheese and cooled omelet to a telera roll. Heat in oven until hot in center. Serve as is or with your favorite hot sauce.

Our employees have paid time off, but if they don’t call in at least one hour before their scheduled shift, their PTO will be docked for the day. We also assign points for unapproved absences. Everyone starts with a freebie, and when they get to 4, then we start the disciplinary action process. When a staff member gets to 10 points, that is grounds for termination.

The capacity of our dining room is 135 guests, and most evenings we serve closer to 160. At times, this led to some residents waiting for a table, especially at peak hours. Our new table management software allows diners to request specific meal times via a mobile app and allows us to space out our service, greatly reducing the wait times and allowing dining staff to prepare each table in advance of their arrival.

to-go coffee

We have a fixed kiosk that not only sells coffee, but also protein smoothies, grab-and-go reimbursable meals and other a la carte items. We used updated equipment like what is used in Starbucks and incorporated school colors. It is a very popular addition to one of our high schools, and we are planning on expanding it to two additional high schools.
