“The response from our customers was tremendous—we received thousands of entries and were astounded and delighted at the creativity,” says Wing Lam, co-founder and partner of Wahoo’s. “We want to thank everyone who participated. It was a difficult decision to pick three winners. Every entry was original and it was exciting to review all the innovative ideas, several of which had our entire Wahoo’s team laughing.”
Winners Rosa Hopper of San Diego, Shelly Mayo of Brentwood, California, and Colleen Rose of La Verne, California, captured the attention of the founders with their suggestions.
The new items include the Power Chopper Salad, which includes the standard chopped salad fare but is enhanced with rice, beans, and salsa; the Wafu Bowl, which is a Tofu Combo Platter served with rice and the choice of white or black beans; and the Baja-ladas Platter, which includes the restaurant’s homemade Baja Roll served with enchilada sauce, cheese, and sides of both rice and beans.
