MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Caribou Coffee listened to their guests when they asked for more variety and better-for-you food offerings by adding green salads, wraps, pasta salads, snack boxes and fresh fruit to coffeehouse menus across Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. The new additions offer guests low-calorie, gluten-free and vegetarian choices available throughout the day.
“We know that Caribou Coffee guests are looking for a variety of healthy and convenient foods with high-quality ingredients to fuel their day – whether they are on the go or relaxing in one of our coffeehouses,” said Eric Hughes, senior director of product development at Caribou Coffee. “Food innovation is extremely important to us and we want to provide our guests with food that is just as great as our coffee.”
The new products now available include: Garden and Chicken Caesar Salads, Chicken Caesar and Turkey BLT Wraps, Fruit & Cracker and Egg, Fruit & Cheese Snack Boxes and fresh fruit. This new high-quality food offering completes Caribou Coffee’s three-phase food innovation roll-out that began in February with the launch of new assortments of sweet and savory baked goods followed by toasted lunch sandwiches in March.
