The days of long lines and constant shortages at Stacks are over. This summer, Jazzman’s will be removed to make way for an improved version of Stacks that will offer students more options.“Stacks is so popular, but yet Jazzmans has all this space,” said Susan Matheson, general manager of dining at K. “The space isn’t really utilized as best as it could be.”
Matheson said that the ingredient deficiencies at Stacks result from a small space for a high-demand service. Jazzman’s is becoming obsolete with Biggby’s on campus, but it controls most of the space in the Richardson Room of Hicks where it shares space with Stacks.“I’d rather bring in things that the students are looking for, like Paninis and build-your-own pizza, and have more sandwich options,” said Matheson.
The blueprints have already been prepared for this summer.
“I think it makes sense for the students,” said Matheson. “Hopefully it’s more flexible for them because sometimes it’s hard for students to come in for breakfast, lunch and dinner.”
