You have spoken, and we listened! CAS is excited to announce the expansion of our Starbucks location to better suit the needs of the campus community. In order to better serve, and keep up with an increased demand for Starbucks products, the location will move into what is now Fusion Market with a complete renovation.
The expansion will allow for additional spacing needs for our staff to better serve our customers, and allow for additional product offerings and seating. Not to worry, your Fusion Market favorites will be moving to Mary Jemison! Clio’s sandwiches will be incorporated in Levison’s deli, Asada and Lotus will be placed downstairs, and the diverse World Kitchen offerings will continue to be served throughout campus.
The space that Starbucks currently occupies will transform into a Smart Market provided by our vending partner, Crickler. This unique vending concept will provide customers with expanded product offerings, which include fresh, local, and nutritious filling meal options, in addition to favorite vending snacks. This “smart” market provides a self-checkout and allows customers to view and browse products and nutritional information easily. The Smart Market will be available anytime the MacVittie College Union is open.
This expansion will allow us to keep up with the growing demand for Starbucks, and allow for Fusion Market’s diverse offerings to be dispersed throughout campus, all while adding another concept to the Union.
The expansion will begin at the end of this 2019 – 2020 academic year and is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2020. Stay tuned for more updates and information as the process unfolds. The campus community will have the opportunity to provide input via information sessions and surveys.
We look forward to these exciting changes!
