Upscale dining at the Beaver Creek Cafe
After months of construction behind plastic barriers, Minot State University’s Beaver Creek Café opened its doors Saturday, Sept. 17. The Beaver Creek Café is located on the second floor of the Student Center.
A joint venture of MSU and Sodexo Food Service, the $1.3 million remodel sports a brand new state-of-the-art dining facility, dubbed as "all-you-care-to-eat." Food selections include a soup and salad bar, daily grill specials, deli sandwiches, sauté station, vegetarian options, a dessert bar, beverage station and a pizzeria and pasta bar. The entire café offers 7000 square feet of total dining experience and seating for 239.
"The MSU Beaver Creek Café is a flagship dining facility in North Dakota," said David Bateman, Sodexo district manager for the Dakotas and Minnesota. "We will use Minot State’s facility as a benchmark in upscale student dining for our other campus customers across the region."
At MSU, Sodexo has 39 employees who begin their day as early as 5 a.m. and leave as late at 10:30 p.m., serving 1300 meals per day. General Manager, Carlos Soza, and Executive Chef Amy Painter have over three decades of combined food service experience.
"I am really looking forward to seeing the students enjoy the finished product of all our hard work throughout the summer," said Soza.
The Beaver Creek Café is included in MSU student meal plan options and it is also open to the public. The café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is open seven days a week except holidays during the school year. For more information visit: www.misudining.com.
