Marietta College has selected Parkhurst Dining to provide food services on its campus starting July 1, 2012. Parkhurst also operates at Higher ed institutions such as Allegheny College, Bucknell University and Washington & Jefferson College.
“Our goals are to build a healthy partnership between Parkhurst and Marietta College that will always keep the food company focused on their customers,” says Dr. Bob Pastoor, Vice President for Student Life. “Just as the strategic plan states that the College is focused on distinction, we need our food service to be distinct as well. Our students need to have places on campus where they can eat healthy food, that is made from fresh products, and is cooked in such a way that the students will want to enthusiastically return.”
“Parkhurst Dining is proud to partner with Marietta College. We are excited to provide the students, faculty and guests with a variety of healthy options prepared from scratch by our creative culinary teams,” offers Bill Albright, Parkhurst Dining Vice President, Education. “Everything we prepare is from scratch, including soups made from stocks, not base; fresh dough pizza and burgers that are fresh, never frozen. Everything from comfort foods, culturally diverse, to on the go! students can expect a creative mix of dining options to select from and served with excellent customer service,” he adds. “We look forward to providing an authentic culinary experience.”
“Dining services is an important part of campus life for students, faculty, and staff, and we need to provide the best possible food at a reasonable rate,” Pastoor notes. “Dining on campus should provide all of us an opportunity to socialize with one another over a good meal, and we think that Parkhurst will provide all of this.”
Parkhurst replaces Chartwells, which has been on campus since June of 2003.
