2005 Campus C-Store Study: Campuses put more in store

Convenience stores take on new life on college and university campuses, especially when meeting students’ demands for prepared meals.

Portable menus and display cooking will grow in 2006, according to FSD research, while new ethnic cuisines vie for the top spot.

Non-commercial menus today exceed their forebears with regard to health and nutritional benefit, not to mention taste and convenience. But a host of business issues make menu development more challenging than ever.

Students at the University of North Colorado, in Greeley, started clamoring for lunches-to-go in the early 1990s, just as the trend for portable meals started to heat up.
