CANYON, TX -- Students at Randall High School in Canyon Texas will be greeted with an all-new food court concept at school this year. Patterned after convenience stores, a new storefront will offer a variety of foodservice and convenience food items including salad plates, assorted sandwiches, corndogs made from turkey meat, grab'n-go type foods and assorted drinks, according to the Canyon News.
A gourmet coffee shop offering oven-fresh pastries by Otis Spunkmeyer as well as cappuccinos, lattes, mochas and hot chocolate is part of the new concept, with the one-world cafe system developed by Aramark. Also new is Grill Works, a place for teens to order flame-broiled burgers and French fries, and the Pizzeria is serving up mini-pizzas, pasta, breadsticks, individual slices, non-carbonated Powerade and flavored waters.
"We are offering students 'quality calories' in our food choices devoid of carbonated drinks," said Ken Robinson, director of school nutrition services for Canyon ISD -- providing funding for the $302,000 improvement.
At Orville and Wilbur's Wings Just Right, students can get grilled or breaded chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, and Taco Ria offers Mexican food.
And these are just a few possibilities. The idea to offer a one-stop shop to satisfy all its students is a similar philosophy shared by most c-stores, and Randall High School has adopted this policy to keep students on-campus during lunch.
