There's a new food item on the menu at the Artisan Café inside the Owensboro Convention Center. It was inspired by Addison Spurrier, a 5th Grade Student at Highland Elementary!

Beginning on Monday, May 20th, 2019, you can order a delicious new menu item when you stop by the Artisan Café inside the Owensboro Convention Center. How does this sound? "Addison’s BBQ Crunch Wrap" will feature Kentucky Legend® ham, Cheddar cheese, pickles, BBQ sauce, and BBQ potato chips in a honey wheat wrap.

In March, Spectra’s General Manager, Laura Alexander again 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.

"This is the second year we have partnered with Kentucky Legend® and Highland Elementary with great success,” stated General Manager, Laura Alexander. “ 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.

Addison was very excited her creation was chosen.

"Whenever I found out I won, I was super excited. I did not know what to say,” said Addison Spurrier, a 5th Grade Student at Highland Elementary.  “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.

Brooklyn Maple, Brand Director with Kentucky Legend was on hand to deliver the big news to Addison.

We were so excited to attend Highland Elementary School’s talent show and surprise Addison with the news that she won.  We know the recipe will be a hit at the Artisan Café!" said Brooklyn Maple, Brand Director with Kentucky Legend.  "We love the creativity that comes from young minds, and we’re grateful for Spectra for facilitating this project.”

Congrats Addison and we can't wait to try it!

The Artisan Café by Kentucky Legend® is located on the first floor of the Owensboro Convention Center and is open Monday – Friday from 10am – 3pm and during special events.
