Phase One of construction in the Ruby Cafeteria is winding down, and the new beverage and grill areas will be complete soon. However, to complete the process, some temporary changes have occurred.

The beverage area is now shut down. No fountain products at all are available. This includes sodas, ice water, iced tea, and ice.

Bottled drinks will be available at the cafeteria entrance and near the check-out registers. Employees can also visit Ruby on the Run and Starbucks for additional beverage options.

The new beverage area in the cafeteria will open Friday, June 23.

In addition, the cafeteria’s new grill area is tentatively set to open Thursday, June 22.

Nutrition Services apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks employees for their patience during the construction. The renovation projects will accommodate the growing needs of the facility.
