Bon Appétit has been the food service provider for Wesleyan University since the Fall 2007. Founded in 1987, Bon Appétit Management Company is an onsite custom restaurant company that provides café and catering services to corporations, college and universities, and specialty venues. Bon Appétit is known for its culinary expertise, commitment to socially responsible food sourcing and business practices, and strong partnerships with respected conservation organizations. Unlike other university food service providers, Bon Appétit manages the dining program for Wesleyan University, allowing Wesleyan to maintain oversight over all aspects of the dining program instead of letting an outside company make decisions for us. This has allowed Bon Appétit to develop a partnership with the community to implement an innovative and highly satisfactory dining program.

The Wesleyan University community is proud to partner with a company that shares our values and equally proud of the level of culinary expertise and commitment to social responsibility they will bring to our campus dining program.

There are multiple dining venues on campus, managed by Bon Appetit including the Usdan Marketplace, Usdan Cafe, Summerfields, and Pi Cafe. The Wes Shop is also managed by Bon Appetit and provides a mini-market with a large inventory for on campus groceries. Dining locations are only open during regular semester periods. Breaks and summer they are either closed or on a modified schedule.

Get back in the habit! Be sustainable! Please only take one to-go container at Marketplace meals, avoid waste! 

Spring Semester should see a return to the use of plates, bowls etc. and the eco-to-go container program.  When you swipe in at Marketplace you have the option of getting one eco-to-go container if you plan on leaving the dining bay.  If you plan on eating in, then you will use a plate from the dining stations.  Eco-to-go is for take out only.
