This summer, University Dining unveiled Wolfpack-to-Go, a new line of fresh, convenient lunch items. It has received rave reviews and will be featured at the Atrium when the new options open in January. Branded with a red and white logo, the line features 52 varieties of sandwiches, salads, wraps, pitas, and yogurt parfaits at affordable prices.
The new items are currently offered at the Cremery, Hill of Beans, Vet School Cafe, and McKimmon Corner Cafe. We are looking at how it could be extended into the campus C-Stores in the future.
The menu is offered on a rotating basis to maintain variety, and at least one vegetarian item is offered each day. Everything is prepared using fresh, wholesome ingredients like bread from the local Neomande™ Bakery. Prices range from $2.99 to $4.29, which make it possible for diners to still purchase chips or fruit and a drink and keep their lunch affordable. Most combinations enable meal-plan holders to stay at or below their equivalency rate. Of course, all University Dining locations take Board Bucks, AllCampus and credit cards in addition to the meal plan.
Atrium Renovations are on schedule, with the temporary serving area scheduled to be complete just in time for school to begin. The Brickyard Bubble is also quickly taking shape. In just the past week, the frame and canvas covering have been added to the Bubble with insulation also in place. Last week, Technician published a story about the Bubble’s Construction, detailing the Atrium Renovation plans.
Check out the slideshow below for the newest pictures.
The construction fence is up and work has begun inside the Atrium. I will tell you more about the work in future blogs, but let’s start with the first question students ask: “Will we be able to get food during construction?”
The answer is, YES!
We are completing the project in phases to ensure continuous service during the fall and spring semesters. For the fall semester, look for a temporary serving area located in the current seating area, which will feature Chick-fil-A and Lil’ Dino’s. You will also be able to get delicious sandwiches, subs, pitas and wraps under our new Wolfpack-to-Go label at the Hill of Beans and the Creamery. Once you have your food, head out to our air-conditioned temporary eating facility in the Brickyard to enjoy your meal.
When January rolls around, we will debut the new venues in the serving area! University Dining’s Chick-fil-A franchise will continue to be the centerpiece of the Atrium, complemented by several new “micro-restaurants”, including Asian/sushi, pasta/pizza, custom salads, and a wrap station. In addition, University Dining’s new Wolfpack-to-Go line (currently offered on a limited basis in the Creamery, Hill of Beans and Vet School) will have its own space for those who want to grab fresh-made deli items and keep moving when a tight class schedule dictates. Seating will still be offered in the temporary facility on the Brickyard.
We’ll have to close down again for the summer to tie in the air conditioning, vents, sprinkler system, as well as renovate the back kitchen, but when August 2011 rolls around, we’ll be running full tilt from the new-and-improved Atrium Food Court.
