New portable carts provide options for fast food, beverages

Pedestrians may want to stop and smell the coffee this fall at a new mobile coffee cart purchased by the KU Memorial Unions. A food and beverage cart also debuted this fall on Wescoe Beach.

Michael Myers, assistant director of retail for the unions, said marketing students first proposed food carts in the spring as part of a class project for the Coca-Cola Co. After hearing their proposal, Myers said, union retailers began pursuing the idea as an alternative to other concessions offered across campus.

“This provides a good opportunity for students who are in a hurry to grab a snack before class,” he said. “It’s an extra service for the students and will be an enhancement to activities that might be going on.”

The carts are run by KU Memorial Unions and were purchased with funds from Coca-Cola.

Myers said the coffee cart would operate from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday at the southeast corner of Anschutz Library. The cart will carry KC Roasterie coffee, Mill Valley sandwiches, Coca-Cola products, Minute Maid juices and other snack items.

The Wescoe Beach cart will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., selling items including hot dogs, chips and Coca-Cola products.

Hours and availability will be subject to weather conditions.
