Refreshed campus cafés wow students
THOUSANDS of hungry university students enjoyed fresh flavours, wholesome food and great coffee at Compass Group New Zealand’s revamped campus cafés within days of opening, all in time for Orientation Week.
The new eateries – Streat, Treat, The Bread Co., Must.Have.Coffee and The Sandwich Company – are based at Massey University’s Auckland and Manawatu campuses.
“The Compass team has really loved developing and creating our great new menus, dishes and flavours for Massey University’s students, staff and visitors,” says Compass Group Retail Specialist Maree Ashton.
“Each menu is modern and packed full of flavour and, importantly, just simple nourishing goodness!
“The menus are very much about today’s contemporary diner. It doesn’t matter whether it’s fine dining, street food, food on-the-go – what matters is that people expect a good choice of top-quality food at great prices.”
Compass launched the menus at the revamped Massey University eateries for students, staff and visitors to enjoy.
“In only a few weeks, we’ve had already great feedback. People like the refreshed look and feel of each eatery as well as the fresh flavour combinations – it’s all about providing a complete eating experience on site.”
Top sellers included the burgers and salads at Streat, while the Asian-inspired range has had the biggest thumbs up for being huge on flavour.
“Our Baristas and café teams are really pleased with what we have heard from customers so far – it’s been an exciting time for us and for our client and we’re looking forward to introducing new items over the coming months.”
Students and staff who have dietary requirements or prefer vegan or vegetarian options will find several offers to mix and match each day. Compass Group’s Education Dietitian Margret Thorsen reviews all the menus and recipes daiily, to ensure they are nutritionally balanced portions. Margret also runs training for the staff on allergen management and has a Facebook page to engage directly with students.
