Einstein’s introduces extended hours

Trey Crumbie

Students with the late night munchies will be happy to know that they’ll have a place to eat on campus for the next two weeks.

Einstein Bros Bagels will have a soft opening from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays, in addition to its normal hours.

Steve Hoyng, resident district manager for Aramark, said the decision was made due to feedback from students.

“They’ve asked for something to be open and the Mass Media building is conducive due to the fact it has a 24-hour study hall, so that’s why we picked Einstein’s,” Hoyng said. 

Hoyng said the menu will be limited, but all Grab-and-gos will be offered, as well as the top-selling bagels and sandwiches. Payment for these items will remain the same during the soft opening.

Hoyng said if the soft opening is a big success, Einstein’s will remain open for the rest of the semester. Another decision will also be made whether or not to continue its hours for next semester because Red Zone in Downing Student Union will have extended hours as well. 

Hoyng said he is looking forward to the test-run. 

“We’re excited to see how it goes,” Hoyng said.
