Guy Fieri to Cure College Munchies Starting Fall
While everyone is making a fuss about school lunches for high schoolers and those even younger, college kids notoriously have free reign to have as many Cup Noodle/2 a.m. pizza/ Red Bull-vodka combinations they want. So naturally, Guy Fieri decided to get in on the action.
According to a press release, Fieri has teamed up with Sodexo for Guy Fieri On Campus (GFOC), "a fast-casual retail dining concept featuring his unique culinary style with hints of Italian, Asian and Mexican flavors — the kind of food featured regularly on the TV host's shows and in his restaurants, Tex Wasabi's and Johnny Garlic's."
On the menu for college kids? Sandwiches, pastas, tacos, quesadillas, rice bowls, salads, soups, burritos, chicken wings, and Vegas Fries, "a rockin' recipe inspired by Guy's college days" (or, Buffalo sauce and bleu cheese on fries).
"I'm totally psyched about Guy Fieri On Campus. This is my style, my recipes, and what I wish I could have had when I was in college," Fieri said in the statement. "I've definitely learned a lot about what people like to eat in my travels across the country, so you know this food is going to be on point."
Plus, college kids tend to be fairly adventurous when it comes to food combinations (anything to cure the munchies, really), so it's sort of a perfect fit. Fieri and Sodexo reportedly plan to open 15 GFOC stores in the next five years, starting with New Jersey's Montclair State University this fall. Freshmen better prep for more than the Freshman 15.
