The New Buzzwords in School Foodservice: “Four Quarter Folded Wrap”
Upgrade your menu from using the simple word “wrap” the new buzzwords in school foodservice:
“Four quarter folded wrap!”
Okay...so has anyone introduced the new four quarter folded wrap in their kitchen? Well, this crazy-easy food craze seen on all social media platforms would sure get your student customers buzzing about just how AWESOME you are!
Simply put, you take a round tortilla and visually divide the wrap in quarters, filling each with a different component (sauce, protein, extras, toppings). Then, you make a slit from the center out to divide just one quarter. Next, fold the tortilla in half and then in half again. Viola! (I dare say this might be easier than wrapping a wrap.) This yummy breakfast and lunch twist would be great with all hot and cold wrap options.
Of course, however you wrap the food, we all know that kids love a wrap!
Use your market basket monthly list from AEA Purchasing's food program to help you build a better wrap. Start with using your kitchen's favorite tortilla, flatbread, or wrap.
Are you looking to start or expand your offerings? Check out the info and recipes below, provided by our market basket brokers, Waypoint, GVM Food Marketing and The Core Group.
Honey Sesame Chicken or Pineapple Garlic Chicken Wraps.
Using a couple Dole market basket favorites, this colorful Pineapple Chicken Wrap w/Caribbean Ranch Dressing lunch entrée offers a rainbow of flavors!
Goldkist Chicken shared a couple of GREAT ideas using popcorn chicken in two very different ways! Expanding on the still popular Chicken & Waffles, this recipe allows you to use your favorite whole grain waffle paired with the popcorn chicken to create Chicken n’ Waffle Tacos. Tempting the student's taste buds should be easy using their favorite popcorn chicken to create these Chicken Enchilada Wraps.
Have you had the opportunity to try our NEW pulled rotisserie chicken? It's just been added to our market basket. These two flavor filled recipes might offer the perfect excuse to menu this item soon! Why not try the Cheesy Chicken Schwarma or the Hatch Chile Chicken in a wrap next menu?
Last (but not least) pairing students favorites like Chicken and Cheese is sure to be a win-win! Tyson shared this “Let’s Eat! Chicken Queso Wrap” video tutorial!
New year, new you! These “wrap” inspired menu ideas are sure to help make your kitchen and staff the new buzzwords around your district. Whether you are trying the “Four Quarter Folded Wrap” trend in your kitchen or expanding your wrap offering to include a new flavor mix-up, let us know! We would love to spotlight you and your staff on AEA Purchasing's Twitter feed!
