North Dakota Capitol cafeteria gets a makeover

The foodservice staff hopes that lines will move more quickly with the new renovation.

BISMARCK, N.C.—The six month, $1.1 million renovation starts on Monday and the last remodel was done in 1981. And the Capitol Grounds facilities director says the changes are needed.

"The most important part I think is we're gonna add additional cash registers and that we are going to start accepting debit and credit cards," said John Boyle.

The cafeteria serves around 400 people every day. Most people visit during the lunch rush. Boyle says they make 40 percent of their biennial sales during legislative sessions, and that keeps their two registers busy.
