The food court at Mohawk College is a place where students like to gather and grab something to eat or drink and finish their school work while chatting with their friends.
Most food courts on campus were closed due to COVID-19 but as the semester goes on, more food outlets are opening.
As more food court options open up, it’s unclear to students why Subway is still closed, even though most of the other outlets are up and running.
“I wish the Subway was open as other things begin to open up,” student Julia Henry said. “It’s one of my favourite places to grab a quick lunch. It’s also included on the school’s website under food options on campus as being open.”
George Rombes, chief business services officer at Mohawk College, explained why there are delays with some food outlets reopening.
“Mohawk College’s food service provider, Chartwells, is having difficulty staffing its operations,” Rombes said. “Chartwells is working on it and are working to rectify this as quickly as possible.”
“As staffing level increase, more services will continue to open,” Rombes added. “Smokes Poutinerie is open, and the goal is to have Subway open over the coming weeks.”
Students who are still waiting for the re-opening can order substitutes from Urban Fork, Tim Hortons or any of the other open food outlets on campus.
