Made From Scratch

K&W offers the closest thing to home-cooked meals outside your kitchen. Vegetables and meats are purchased raw and prepared in each cafeteria’s kitchen. Breads are kneaded by hand and pie crusts start with flour and water. No microwaves are used for cooking in K&W kitchens. Items are made in small batches throughout the day to ensure freshness and control waste. Our daily offering of over 100 foods are made from scratch, and customers can be assured that K&W uses only fresh, wholesome ingredients.
