Carolina Dining Services has designed their menu this year with students’ preferences in mind.
“I want to serve what my customers want to eat,” Michael Gueiss, the executive chef for CDS, said.
Gueiss said prior to creating the menu, he worked with marketing to see what food students want to eat in the dining halls, as well as what foods were successful on the past semester’s menu.
Scott Myers, associate director of Auxiliary Service for CDS, said every April, CDS develops an annual plan for the next year. The Student Dining Board, which is made up of 11 students and five administrators, reviews and decides whether to approve the proposed menus from food services.
This year, some approved additions include the new protein salad station, the wok station at Rams Head Dining Hall and the burrito bar at the Top of Lenoir.
