Texas Wesleyan has implemented a new food option on campus that allows students, faculty and staff the convenience of purchasing food in a central location.
The Central Market food truck has been on campus since the summer and students are rating it a success.
Karen Montgomery, vice president of finance and administration, has taken the time to research other outlets for students to have other dining options. Montgomery said she noticed the Central Market truck at another venue and gave the catering office a call.
“I noticed there was a need during the summer for students and staff to have other food options available,” Montgomery said.
Montgomery said with the summer months, Wesleyan needed other options because regular dinning services were open for a limited time. With the work Montgomery is accomplishing she is referred to as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) but some call her now Chief Food Officer.
Jace Gaston, junior/senior marketing major, said she has enjoyed the quality of the food and the convenience.
“I was happy the first day I saw the truck on campus because the food options are right up my alley,” Gaston said. “They have healthier options that I enjoy.”
Armando Rodriguez, sophomore business major, said he has also benefited from the food truck and says he is glad there is another option on campus.
“It was my second day of school; I was looking for something to eat and decided to eat at the Central Market food truck and it was delicious,” Rodriguez said. “I really enjoyed it and will be eating there more often.”
The Central Market food truck is currently serving food Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the northwest corner of the Armstrong Mabee Business Center.
