This year we introduced two new versions of the Cook’s Brand Marathon Tray. The Marathon is our most popular insulated meal delivery tray for corrections. The specially formulated solid material is exceptionally durable to withstand the abuses of correctional foodservice. The one-piece design is also easy to clean and it has a jail & prison menu-friendly layout with one large entree compartment, a compartment that holds up to 3 slices of bread, a flatware compartment and then three remaining compartments to hold a vegetable/side, a starch and a piece of cake or sweet.
Shown above on the left is the new Cook’s Brand Raised Compartment Marathon Tray with the original Cook’s Brand Marathon Tray, shown on the right for comparison. We introduced the new Raised Compartment Marathon Tray to improve the presentation of meals by elevating food so portions appear heartier. Raising the bottom of the compartments makes them shallower than in the traditional tray and makes portions look larger. We also coved the underside of the compartments so that you won’t have food sticking to the tray above when you stack trays for delivery. This improves meal presentation and sanitation.
Along with the Raised Compartment Marathon, we are introducing the new Cook’s Brand Extra-Deep Marathon Tray. We developed the Extra-Deep Marathon tray for customers that have issues with food sticking on the underside of the tray above when stacked. Some menus in corrections have larger portions that required a compartment with more space so we dropped the marathon compartments down as much as we could giving you more room for a more sanitary and appealing meal delivery. Less mess; more appetizing meals.
To see how these meal delivery trays all compare to each other, watch Jeff Breeden; CEO of Cook’s Correctional, walk you through each of the trays in the 1 minute video posted below:
Examples of complex custom fabrication jobs that Cook’s completed.
Custom serving lines and tables can be extremely difficult to replace. Generally, it requires a site visit to take field measurements, approval of engineered drawings and then installation. Cook’s can help. We routinely make custom serving lines, tables, sinks; even wall coverings, and we guarantee our products are built for corrections.
Our process is simple.
