A new-and-improved retail dining option opened Morris College! The Hornet’s Nest opened with a grand opening celebration on Friday from noon to 3 p.m. featuring free tastings. The former pizza operation will serve an array of selections for dine in or take out, including burgers, subs, pizza, chicken fingers, wings and sweet potato fries, according to a news release. Coca-Cola products will include soda, lemonade, tea and water, and there is seating for up to 100 where students can also watch TV or play pool!
Food is managed by Aladdin, who celebrates their one-year anniversary as the official dining services partner to Morris College. In addition to the Hornet’s Nest, renovations to the cafeteria’s front-of-the-house were made last year to provide new dining stations and to streamline the serving process.
Under the direction of Aladdin Food Service Director Cassandra Garner, “The renovations included the addition of Aladdin signature stations including Grill Works and Show Time exhibition cooking. A deli, condiment, dessert, waffle and a new beverage station were also added to the delight of the students.”
