The CAF will reopen in the fall of 2019 with a full redesign and new food selections once construction is completed.
Cody Guins, director of facilities planning and construction, said the $8.6 million project will include a complete renovation of the dining, serving and kitchen areas. The overall floor plan will be much more open than the previous layout.
Students can expect three retail-style stalls: Roscoe’s Den, Tu Tacos and Bowl Life. There will also be four traditional all-you-care-to-eat serving stalls set up in a retail fashion, as well as a Pizza Kitchen, a My Kitchen and a Fresh Garden Kitchen.
“Roscoe’s Den, Tu Tacos and Bowl Life will be in a continuous space with the rest of the CAF,” Guins said. “A variety of dining settings will be available and updated technology, including a new sound system and over a dozen flat-screen TVs, will complete the experience.”
Janet Becerril, junior, said it is good that the CAF is being renovated. She said she thinks it is necessary to provide new food options as it might be beneficial to students with special dietary needs.
“When we open the CAF back up in the fall, our goal is to provide new, unique options through some of the new concepts, as well as provide the favorites students have always enjoyed,” Guins said.
While the CAF undergoes construction, students will still have a variety of dining options on campus. There will be an all-you-care-to-eat option from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Vista Verde Room located on the second floor of the Plaza Verde Clubhouse. Grab-and-go items will be offered in Texan Hall’s Community Room and Roscoe’s Den will be moved to the baseball field. There will also be extended hours at dining locations in the Houston Harte University Center. Students can find more information about meal options on ASU’s website.
More information regarding the CAF will be available for students during orientation and Rambunctious Week in the fall.
