University of Montevallo welcomes Chartwells as new food service vendor

In yet another expansion of services at the University of Montevallo, a new food service vendor was introduced Wednesday afternoon with a ribbon-cutting at Anna Irvin Dining Hall on the UM campus.

The university has engaged Chartwells to provide not only cafeteria service, but also to establish Moe’s Southwestern Grill and Olo Sushi in Farmer Hall, the student union building. Under the title, Falcon Foods, Chartwells will serve made-to-order entrees of regional and traditional cuisines as well as salads, sandwiches and wraps, bakery items, baked entrees and pastries, all focusing on fresh ingredients and healthy offerings.

In addition, Chartwells assures diners that they serve “environmentally friendly and socially conscious foods.” At a university that places a high value on sustainability and environmental awareness, this is expected to be a factor in their popularity with students, faculty and staff.

University of Montevallo president John W. Stewart III welcomed Chartwells to the UM campus. Representing Compass Group North America, the parent company of Chartwells, were Fred Heaviside, regional vice president; Andrew Willows, regional director; Scott Giddens, Falcon Foods director; and Tommy Brown, who served as interim director of dining services at UM through the transition.
