Pizza! Pizza!

WSU offers online pizza delivery.

PULLMAN, Wash.—A new online pizza delivery and ordering system recently debuted at 17,700-student Washington Sate University.
Stonewall Pizza Express now offers students the ability to order pizza online through wsu.webfood.com and either have it delivered for free to their residence hall or arrange to pick it up at Hillside Café Late Night. Delivery is available from 8:15 p.m. to 12:45 a.m., seven days a week. Students can pay using their resident dining accounts, Cougar Cash or credit cards. Stonewall Pizza Express features 12-inch pizzas such as Thai chicken pizza, barbeque meatball and Hawaiian luau, as well as strombolis.

Another new online feature is the Webfood Fresh Express. Customers can order a meal or snack online, including sandwiches, salads and desserts, which are then picked up at a take-out area at the campus’ espresso bar.

“We’re still starting out slowly,” Gary Coyle, director of dining, said. “We’re doing about 10 to 12 pizzas during the weekend right now. We’d like to increase that still so we’re still promoting it in the student newspaper and online. Also, we are looking at other products that we can add to the Fresh Express program, such as chicken wings and sub sandwiches.”

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first. Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.

Industry News & Opinion

Students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor will be served student-grown produce from the campus farm at dining halls this fall, M Live reports.

The dining team received its first batch of produce from UM’s on-campus farm in June, after students received the proper USDA certification to grow, harvest and deliver food to campus dining halls. In order to figure out what produce is needed, students communicate with the dining department weekly, and Michigan Dining purchases items accordingly.
