Whatever Happened to Einstein’s? – The WOLF News

By Bode Brooks, The WOLF News Director

Some students on campus may have noticed the bookstore’s bagel confectionary has yet to open this semester. The WOLF News spoke with UWGΒ Director of Campus Dining John Lyons to discuss why Einstein Bros. Bagels has yet to open on campus.

“Aramark owned licenses to operate the restaurants we have here on campus,” Lyons said. “The university had to obtain those licenses again after we ended the contract we had with Aramark.”

Lyons said that Einstein’s was prioritized last when the process began to obtain operating licenses for restaurants on campus. Lyons described that the process of obtaining a license takes a very long time.

“Chick-fil-A and Starbucks were our main priorities. Negotiations with Starbucks began back in December and were just completed two weeks ago, however, we were able to open up Starbucks this semester under a temporary operating agreement.” Lyons went on to say that Chick-fil-A was the easiest to negotiate with, being a Georgia-based company and already present on many college campuses. Lyons also mentioned that contract negotiations began with Subway, however, they could not come to terms with an agreement and wasΒ thus replaced by the Market Fresh Deli.

Lyons said that Einstein’s executives weren’t willing to negotiate a temporary operating agreement, but the legal process for obtaining the Einstein’s operating license had now been completed.

“All we need now is to staff it,” Lyons said. Lyons said the hiring process has begun for Einstein’s management, but they will need to be sent for training to Einstein Bros. Bagels headquarters in Colorado. Lyons couldn’t comment on an exact date for when Einstein’s will officially open.
