Elevating Our “Kid-Inspired, Chef-Crafted” Approach

With Chef Cliff’s culinary leadership, Revolution Foods is continuing to deepen our understanding of our consumers’ preferences so that we can build upon our unique kid-inspired, chef-crafted approach to product development. This includes:

  • Deepening our understanding of how kids make food decisions and the many contributing factors to “kid appeal” (i.e. taste, aroma, packaging, presentation & delivery)
  • Co-designing meals with students & testing every new menu innovation or reform concept at various stage-gates
  • Taking a data-driven approach to kid-testing – developing SOPs for collecting and analyzing both quantitative and qualitative information
  • Developing & customizing more variety of our menu items to drive student engagement

“At its core, our product development process will be focused on elevating the kid-appeal factor. We want to engage kids and give them what they want, in a way that is still healthy, nutritious, and palate-expanding.”
