Campus dining service adds more options

Aramark, Wake Forest University’s food service provider, has added several menu options to its campus dining areas, a new convenience store, a coffee shop, and dinner nights in the Magnolia Room for the 2003-2004 academic year.

In response to student requests, Aramark will offer dinner in the Magnolia Room two nights per month. This will be in addition to the Magnolia Room’s daily lunch features that include a soup, salad bar, vegetables and three entrée options.

Bodega, a new convenience store featuring candy, beverages, health and beauty aids, and other items, opens in Benson University Center Food Court. The store will accept cash and Deacon Dollars. Aramark also maintains two other convenience stores, the Sundry Shop in Davis Residence Hall and one near Martin Residence Hall (formerly North Residence Hall).

A new coffee shop, Campus Grounds, will open in Taylor Residence Hall. The shop will offer espresso, cappuccino and iced coffee beverages along with baked goods. Campus Grounds will also be open late-night until 1:30 a.m.

Other new offerings around campus include Fresh Market smoothies at Shorty’s; wraps and homemade ranch potato chips at Montague’s Deli in Benson Center and Information Systems food courts; foccacia dippers (similar to a breadstick stuffed with cheese, onions and roma tomatoes), rolettos (similar to a calzone) and Sicilian pie at Bene Pasta in the Reynolda Hall cafeteria (the Pit); and 6-ounce sirloin burgers at Grille Works in all three dining locations.

Dinner hours in Reynolda Hall cafeteria have also been extended until 8:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

Aramark is accepting applications for employment at Campus Grounds and for Magnolia Catering. Students may pick up applications in Reynolda Hall, Room 31C, or by calling 758-3908.
