Boise State welcomes Chartwells Higher Education as new food service partner

Boise State dining has partnered with Chartwells Higher Education to begin a dining program refresh that will see rebranding and updates across campus beginning this summer and into the fall.

“I’m excited to be on campus and ready to start supporting the Boise State community. We have a lot of plans for the summer, and we’re off to a great start,” said Director of Boise State dining, Ben Southard.

A number of dining locations will be open over the summer to support orientations, athletics, camps and the general community. Summer hours, locations, and menu options can be found at Dine on Campus.

Several enhancements to dining options across campus will start this fall. Boise River Café will be re-branded as Buster’s Kitchen, with all-new dining stations and enhanced menus emphasizing customization, made-to-order selections, and an allergen-friendly station. The refresh is in advance of a larger construction beginning in the next year. Southfork Market will be transformed into an all-you-care-to-eat dining hall with rotating menus, premium selections, and a teaching kitchen for chef demonstrations and hands-on learning. Partnering with local Boise restaurants and brands will remain an integral part of the dining experience across campus.

The convenience stores in the Student Union Building, Southfork Market, Interactive Learning Center, and across campus will also be refreshed, transforming into The Market with new grab-and-go selections, snacks, and beverages.

Carved & Crafted is the new catering option for campus events, offering different tiers of service from high-end events, daily buffets, and a student-focused guide.

Additional dining updates will be shared throughout the summer and into the fall term.
