The ASUCD Coffee House is finally open to the public today.
“We hope to exceed expectations,” said Sharon Coulson, director of the CoHo, in an e-mail interview. “We have a great student crew ready to cook, bake, grill, make sandwiches, cashier and brew coffee – among a multitude of other things – once the doors open.”
The CoHo hired 250 brand new students as well as a small amount of employees from last year, Coulson said.
Over the past month, the management staff, including career managers, student managers and student supervisors, have worked long and exhaustive hours training, stocking shelves, cleaning, organizing and preparing for the grand opening.
“We also recognize that training without customers is wholly different than providing food and beverages for 7,000 customers a day,” she said. “Therefore, we assume we will go through a refinement period after we open to adjust to the reality that is the CoHo.
“Everyone at the CoHo is excited to finally be opening.”
