Changes Coming to the Dairy Bar: New Management and Menu

By Jody Record, Campus Journal Editor
September 19, 2007

When the Dairy Bar closes at the end of the semester as renovation to the train station continues, it will undergo a transformation of its own. And when it reopens sometime in February 2008, it will be under new management and have a whole new look.

UNH Hospitality Services will take the reins from the Thompson School, who has managed the operation since 1974. The move is an attempt to look at providing different services to the UNH community as well as train passengers and folks attending events at the Whittmore Center.

The menu will be more akin to that offered at Panache in Holloway Commons, with sandwiches and breakfast items made to order and “grab-and-go” items for visitors on the move. The eat-at counter is going to be removed, new seating will be added leading into the train station vestibule, and the wait staff is being replaced with counter help to increase speed.

But don’t worry: the ice cream is staying.

“This is an opportunity for us to better serve the community,” says David May, assistant vice president of business affairs. “We are excited about this change and look forward to feedback from the community.”

May noted that Dining Services will work with the Thompson School to provide students an academic experience through UNH dining and the New England Center. Current Dairy Bar employees will be offered positions with Dining Services.

The Dairy Bar will remain open through the end of the semester. Construction will begin during the holiday break and the restaurant will reopen sometime in February. The new expanded hours will be Monday – Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, the ice cream window will be open Monday – Friday 4:30 p.m. – 8 p.m., and from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
