Spectra, the providers of Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to the Owensboro Convention Center, is excited to share a tasty new food item on the menu at the Artisan Café by Kentucky Legend® beginning on Monday, May 20.
In March, Spectra General Manager Laura Alexander participated in Highland Elementary School’s Leaders in the Workplace Day where students were asked to come up with ideas for the new item for the next year.
Those ideas were later discussed by the Spectra food and beverage team, and it was unanimously agreed that one student’s idea had the most delicious potential. The team crafted the idea, inspired by fifth grade Highland Elementary School student, Addison Spurrier, into Addison’s BBQ Crunch Wrap. It will feature Kentucky Legend® ham, Cheddar cheese, pickles, BBQ sauce, and BBQ potato chips in a honey wheat wrap.
“Whenever I found out I won, I was super excited. I did not know what to say,” Spurrier said. “I thought back to when we were given the challenge to come up with the new menu item, I thought about if anyone would like it. Also, it was unique and original. Overall, I am super excited that my item will be on the menu for everyone to try and enjoy.”
This is the second year Owensboro Convention Center has partnered with Kentucky Legend® and Highland Elementary School for Leaders in the Workplace.
“Last year we featured Alex’s B.L.T. Taco on the menu for a year, created in part by Highland Elementary School student, Alex Wilcox, and the Addison’s BBQ Crunch Wrap will replace that item on the menu for the next year,” Alexander said.
Alexander and Kentucky Legend Brand Manager Brooklyn Maple surprised Addison at her school talent show with the news that she won.
“We know the recipe will be a hit at the Artisan Café!” Maple said. “We love the creativity that comes from young minds, and we’re grateful for Spectra for facilitating this project.”
The Artisan Café by Kentucky Legend® is located on the first floor of the Owensboro Convention Center and is open Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. and during special events.
