Temple University’s Howard Gittis Student Center food court will be renovated this summer.
The University will be working with Aramark to bring many new food options that will be available for the fall 2017 semester. The new brands include:
- Twisted Taco
- Which Wich Superior Sandwiches
- Zaya Mediterranean Grill
- Zen Asian Fusion Restaurant
- Starbucks (in the atrium)
The renovation of the Valaida S. Walker Dining Court and the atrium will start in May and finish in late August. The 750 seat establishment will be rearranged in order provide more space for events and studying. The walls, floors, lighting fixtures, and furniture will all be renovated.
Two kiosks will be installed in the Game Room in Student Center South for food delivery options. The information desk in the atrium will also be upgraded, and during construction the desk will be moved to the south-end lobby.
Temple will also be working with Aramark to operate Cherry and White Catering, with a student-focused offering called Wise Owl.
“We are proud to partner with Temple University to transform the campus experience and environment for students, faculty and staff,” said Tammy Sumpter, Aramark’s regional vice president. “Aramark will be investing in the campus community with new dining venues that include a mix of national and proprietary brands, which the Temple community will be able to enjoy in the fall semester and beyond.”
