“When we create a new item as a limited time offering, we start by looking at current flavor-pairing trends,” says Jason Goldschmidt, retail director, James R. Connor University Center, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Dining Services in partnership with Chartwells. “The flavors of ginger and peanut are familiar to some, but for many customers, it’s a new, unique experience.”
Looking to connect more with customers, UW-W Dining introduces ideas for limited time offerings in a weekly poll called “Your Voice, Your Choice” on its Facebook page. The first
winner was the Peanut Ginger Chicken Panini.
The sandwich is offered at a retail location alongside more sandwiches and soups at the Graham Street Café, located inside the university center.
