Gerts, the SSMU-run campus bar, was under renovation this summer in order to update the physical bar space and introduce food services as well as a new selection of beers.
The food services will be entirely run by SSMU staff, with a student staff member acting as food services manager.
“We’re going to have full lunch menu specials on different days and wait staff so you can sit at a table and get served food,” said SSMU President Josh Redel.
The funding for the project came from SSMU’s working budget and its capital expenditure reserve fund.
The building’s second floor will also have new concessions tenants this year, following the departure of the MTY group and its franchises. The new tenants are Lola Rosa Xpress, Bocadillo and Bamboo Bowl.
