Grand opening of innovative food services, featuring local partnerships, high-tech autonomous store, and a culinary journey at The Hot Seat, The Market, and The Exchange

Haskayne School of Business is pleased to announce Mathison Hall is fully open for business with the official grand opening of its Food Services. Food services provider, Aramark, operates the new space. Located on the second level, the new Food Services completely transforms the campus dining experience through the thoughtful integration of local Calgary businesses through meaningful partnerships with award-winning Italian restaurant, D.O.P and popular coffee chain, Phil & Sebastian. Leveraging the latest technology and business trends will introduce an autonomous store. Haskayne students now have access to fresh made-to-order offerings, convenient grab-and-go options and high-quality coffee and beverages at all times of the day.

Organized into three unique dining spaces – The Hot Seat, The Market and The Exchange– each area offers guests distinct dining options and helps fulfill the growing need for affordable, convenient and diverse food offerings – particularly on the east end of campus. Designed to serve as a third-party restaurant rotation space, The Exchange is proud to welcome one of Canada’s Top 100 Best Restaurants, D.O.P. as its inaugural partner. D.O.P offers students fresh, high-quality pasta and homemade sauces from their restaurant menu at a fraction of the price.

In addition to the dining spaces, Haskayne is also leveraging the latest technology to introduce a 24/7 autonomous store, Quick Eats. The store will offer sandwiches, wraps, salads, baked goods, coffee and Coca-Cola products for the community to enjoy at any time of day. This AI-powered retail solution integrates technology and automation to provide a streamlined, effortless shopping experience. Utilizing computer vision and sensors, guests enter the store, select their items and are automatically charged the amount for the products they have taken upon exiting the store.
