Come get your hot biscuits!
With Elon University’s dining services expanding, students now have the option for a hot, southern breakfast any time of day.
According to Elon University’s website, Lakeside Dining Hall’s Winter Garden Café is now the new home of Biscuitville.
Burney Jennings, Biscuitville CEO, and Leo Lambert, President of Elon University, spoke at the ribbon cutting this morning.
“We are really indebted to the Jennings family for thinking about partnering with Aramark and Elon University on this experimental venture – the first time we tried to put a Biscuitville on any college campus,” said Lambert.
Known Elon names, including Dr. Earl Danieley, were in attendance to see the new eatery’s grand opening.
Free biscuits and bottle holders were given out to spectators.
The newest dining location will be open from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and then 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Breakfast items will be available on the menu all day, with lunch and dinner options also including turkey burgers and chicken strips.
“We think we have put together a menu that will satisfy just about everyone,” said Jennings.
Students are having mixed reactions to the new breakfast food location.
Molly Bissell, senior at Elon University, finds that the menu is not very friendly to her eating habits.
“I was excited when I heard that Biscuitville was opening on campus but unfortunately, with their lack of vegetarian options, it looks like I won’t be going there very often,” said Bissell.
Other students, however, are already embracing the biscuits.
“It’s kind of like being able to immerse yourself more into some southern culture. I like the opening also because it offers a quick breakfast option that I never really had,” said Brian Binder, junior at Elon University.
