The bull used in Wall Street jargon and stock market symbols may have to step aside for the time being. It’s not the same old foodservice menu at the New York Stock Exchange, now that employees can order Pork in Sweet Chili Sauce, Ribs with Plum Sauce, Orange Teriyaki Pork Chops, Country Ribs with Bourbon Glaze, and Thai Coconut Stir-Fried Pork and Pomegranate Mojito Sliders.
The NYSE has a number of on-site dining outlets, including cafeterias and executive dining rooms. All foodservice operations will offer pork entrees, sandwiches and appetizers that have been prepared using Minor Sauces and Bases in their preparations. Minor’s, which is a division of Nestle, has entered into a co-promotion with the NYSE to enhance current pork offerings and also to develop new pork offerings to entice the 3,500 employees, traders, brokers and staff to dine within the many food operations of the NYSE.
“The NYSE wants to offer its employees more innovative, exciting dishes, and they are featuring a number of new pork dishes for a limited time,” says Howard Greenblatt, national foodservice marketing manager for the National Pork Board. “After determining which of these items really take off, they may become part of the regular menu.”
The promotions are a great opportunity for pork, Greenblatt says, because they incorporate creative uses of pork shoulder, hocks, hams, pork butt, ribs and more.
“From sliders to Asian barbecue to Cajun, the NYSE foodservice system will feature different specials each day from late August to late September. New posters, menu boards, e-mails, daily postings of the specials, recipe handouts and giveaways in each dining facility should all lend to another successful promotion and new permanent menu offerings at this high-profile account.”
