According to the Foodservice Research Institution, the top five cheeses found on American menus are mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, jack and Swiss. These five cheeses comprise 67% of all cheeses mentioned on a sampling of menus from 1,550 chains, independents, and non-commercial foodservice operators.*
But this may change. Chefs across America are thinking creatively about their menus and finding ways to introduce specialty cheeses as an alternative to traditional ones.
Challenge Dairy's Foodservice division offers a full line of high quality cheeses including domestic, imported, organic, and artisan cheeses. If your foodservice operation is looking for ways to enhance your recipes or offer something unique to your patrons, consider adding any of our specialy cheeses to your menu. Ask your foodservice sales representative to sample any of our fine specialty cheeses: Smoked Gouda, Pepper Jack, Brie, Aged Cheddar, Swiss Gruyere, Bel Paese, Ricotta, Romano, Blue, Feta, Goat, Cottage, Asiago, Havarti, Mascarpone, Mexican-style, and more.
