Dunkin' and Chick-fil-A highlight newly renovated Union Food Market
Towson University students officially run on Dunkin’.
The national donut and coffee chain is a highlight addition to the newly renovated Union Food Market, which will introduce seven unique dining option to campus.
The brand-new, full-service Dunkin’ location, which opened on Jan. 18, is the first on-campus location that will provide students with their favorite donuts, coffee, breakfast sandwiches and other freshly-baked goods on site.
Along with Dunkin’, the Union Food Market will also be home to the campus’ first full-service Chick-fil-A, which opens on Monday, Jan. 24.
This replaces Chick-fil-A Express, which previously served 5,000 chicken nuggets and 700 chicken sandwiches a day. The new full-service location is equipped to handle high volumes from the TU community — which today is more than three times the size of the student population when the original Union opened five decades earlier.
"Providing a variety of dining options helps to enhance the campus and the University Union, specifically, as an enjoyable destination for our students," says Vernon Hurte, TU's vice president for student affairs. "It’s especially exciting to have both Dunkin and Chick-fil-A as these were greatly desired food options by our student body.
Along with the two national vendors, the Union Food Market will also be the home to five eateries unique to the TU community. These vendors will include:
All vendors in the Union Food Market will open during the start of the spring 2022 term. With these new options opening up, the PAWS Café located on the first floor of the University Union will close to undergo renovations to improve the space.
Says Hurte, "Our goal is to provide an outstanding experience for our students. Having excellent dining options is a major part of that."
The Union is the most frequently-used building on Towson University’s campus, housing student activities, student group and meeting space, and retail and dining options used by the entire campus community.
Among the additions:
"It’s awesome to see the vision for the University Union come alive," says Towson University Vice President for Student Affairs Venron Hurte. "Every time I walk through the Union, I’m excited by the sight of our students making it a wonderful destination for making connections and enjoying the resources and amenities available to them."
