OCU- First fast-food restaurant opens on campus
After months of construction in the lower level of the Tom and Brenda McDaniel Student Center, Chick-fil-A opened for business in mid-February. The first fast-food restaurant on campus, it was expected to open last fall, but permitting issues pushed back the grand opening.
Students took a survey in 2017 about their fast-food preferences. Chick-fil-A edged out Subway to top the list.
So Chartwells, which is OCU’s new food service provider, quickly went to work to contract with the family-owned restaurant chain. The campus’s fast-food site offers the full menu of food and drink items and also caters. Students can use their meal cards.
And, like the company’s other locations, the OCU location is closed on Sundays.
In addition, renovations were made to Alvin’s, OCU’s coffee shop/convenience market also on the lower level in the student center. The market now offers a larger grocery selection.
