Dining hall undergoing major transformation

The day after graduation in May, renovations began at an Erie campus venue that goes to the very heart, soul and stomach of the student experience – the cafeteria. Thanks to a combination of Mercyhurst capital funds and a $2 million contribution from its food service partner, Parkhurst Dining, an estimated $3 million overhaul is underway for Egan Dining Hall. The amount includes not only renovations, but new food service equipment and all-new furnishings. When students return to campus in the fall, they’ll fnd an inviting, modern atmosphere with easily accessible food stations, more eclectic menu items, fex-style seating, enhanced technology, and group gathering sites. As Dean Schoenfeldt, Parkhurst general manager at Mercyhurst, says, “This isn’t your high school’s cafeteria!” “We are enormously grateful to Parkhurst for working with us to heighten the dining experience for our college community, particularly our students,”Victor said. “This is a perfect example of the power of cultivating relationships. Our beautiful campus has always had that certain wow factor, and now our dining hall will, too.” Project architect Shelane Buehler of Erie said the changes will make ingress and egress more accessible, scatter food stations to enhance speed and efciency, and provide seating that accommodates the gamut of diners, from the individual student who wants to sit at a high-top and study, to the department that wants to have lunch all together. What’s more, the cafeteria will be totally plugged in, from areas equipped with power-and- data backsplashes to Wi-Fi to high-defnition televisions. “Parkhurst is proud to be a partner of Mercyhurst University and have the ability to provide this contract investment to enhance the overall facility for years to come,” said Jef Broadhurst, president and CEO of Eat'n Park Hospitality Group, parent company of Parkhurst Dining.
