In a bid to meet customers’ growing interest in plant-based dishes, foodservice vendor Aramarkwill soon roll out a number of new meatless dishes on the college campuses it serves.
Some of the new plant-centric items it’s taking to colleges this fall include the Greek-inspired Spanakopita Quesadilla, an open-faced sandwich topped with roasted butternut squash and the Sweet Potato Smash sandwich (sweet potato, cranberry sauce and goat cheese on ciabatta bread).
Nearly a third (30%) of the entrees Aramark serves up at colleges are either vegetarian or vegan, the company said in a news release.
Those expanded offerings are not the only change Aramark will bring about on campuses in the coming months. Outposts of Oath Pizza will soon debut at colleges due to Aramark’s recently announced investment in the fast-casual pizza chain.
