With the students home for summer break it was time for some of our dining locations on campus to be renovated - or, in the case of two locations, completely remodeled. The Cyber Café inside Snell Library and Mondo Subs in Ryder Hall were closed in May to make way for two national brands, Argo Tea and Subway, respectively. The construction, which lasted the entire summer, created two fully redesigned dining locations on campus.
Argo Tea offers signature loose teas and blends from around the world in addition to teaware and tea-inspired specialty foods. While best known for their tea drinks, Argo Tea also has a full line of brewed coffee and espresso beverages to help non-tea drinkers push through those late night study sessions in Snell. The location on Northeastern's campus is Argo Tea's eighteenth store nationwide and the first in Massachusetts.
Subway is the world's largest restaurant chain (by number of stores) with more than 35,000 worldwide locations [subway.com]. National promotions, such as the monthly $5 Footlong special, are welcome at our Northeastern location as well as special discounts that we run just for Northeastern.

In June, the Dining Services team traveled to New York City to visit an active Argo Tea store before the launch of our own location in August. While in Manhattan, we had the opportunity to take a food truck tour to check out some of the area's best mobile eats. With Northeastern's food truck in the final planning stages at that time, it was a great chance to see how some of the best - and busiest - food trucks operated before ours rolled onto campus. The tour included a wide variety of trucks including The Frying Dutchman (French fries), Souvlaki GR (Greek), and Kimchi Taco (Korean BBQ). The food served from these trucks was not only delicious but also helped to inspire some of the menu items that you can find for lunch and dinner on Hungry Hungry Husky.
