Change is coming to the restaurant landscape in The Union Union.

Sandwich Shack is moving out of The Union by the end of the semester, Students’ Association Sen. Amanda Husted said at the Oct. 29 SA meeting and will be replaced with a true balance station, similar to the one in Larson Commons. 

“Less than 100 people go to Sandwich Shack a day,” she said.

A true balance station serves meals that are free of major allergens — peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, dairy, wheat and soy.

“It will be nice to have a healthy and more home-cooked option in the Market,” she said.

Union Coffee is also moving out of The Union. The new townhomes on Jackrabbit Avenue will have a full-service Starbucks inside when the building is completed in fall 2019. Because of this new contract, Union Coffee’s contract will dissolve, Husted said at the Oct. 22 SA meeting.

Husted reported at the Oct. 29 meeting that the University Food Service Advisory Committee is “very tentatively, considering a restaurant called  ‘Freshëns,’” which serves smoothies, flatbreads and rice bowls, to fill Union Coffee’s space.

Freshëns is committed to sustainability and takes actions to make strides in leaving a smaller environmental footprint. They are the first retail brand to introduce the ecotainer™, a paper cold cup that’s completely compostable and biodegradable.

Healthy and 100 percent clean smoothies are also made at Freshëns. The smoothies don’t include any artificial additives or flavors and are gluten, growth hormone and GMO-free.
