Yeah, regardless of whether there are campuses in the middle of nowhere that have worse options, the food options at and around Marquette for students are a complete joke.  Sure you can get stuff Doordashed by paying double what you should be paying and getting your food after it's sat out for over a half hour.  And I get that there are reasons it is the way it is.  But the options are absolutely horrible.

You sound like a Wojo supporter. It’s bad, but it could be wayyyyy worse ! Lol

Ha. I was only responding to the claim that Marquette's situation was the worst in country. Sadly for college students everywhere, it is closer to the average than the worst.

Unfortunate reality is that most non-fast food franchise that tries to depend on college kids as their main source of customers is going to go out of business. Most college kids are broke, prioritize price over quality, have access to already paid for food on campus, and disappear for about a third of the year.

I’m pointing out to you that three very large institutions abut campus and that MU is actively killing leases of good partners. 

So while you’re correct in saying they don’t have an obligation I’m saying that there is a market.

Why is Marquette killing those leases? It's not run by dummies - they obviously have their reasons.  Do they have something else planned for the site? I don't know the answers, but I am sure they will be revealed eventually.

And if there is a market out there, then restaurants will open up elsewhere.

Former campus restaurants as Marquette head coaches:  I think Wojo was the Dogg Haus.

It's been a few since I have been back. Aside from Real Chili, what is the oldest establishment still remaining?

It’s middle of February, 2am, and you’re at last call at Murphy’s or Caffs. Hey, I got an idea…let’s walk to the third ward to get something to eat.



That's what Chili is for.

And how many businesses can actually stay in business relying on the drunk food business?

Another factor:  Who is going to work at these places?  Fewer and fewer Marquette students work these days, especially at non-glamorous jobs like fast food. Despite being one of the highest-paying jobs on campus,  MUPD  has resorted to signing and referral bonuses to get kids to drive LIMO, and they are still short-staffed.
Have some patience, FFS.

My guess?  They are going to knock down the entire block and build something new.

Yup.  Can’t wave a magic staffing wand at places like this and fill the positions.  Between the pay and hours, dealing with drunken college students?  Hard pass

Your family has #MUWBB season tickets.

Where are you going before or after the game?

That is not enough customers to sustain much of anything.

I have not been on campus for many years, but I noticed that no one mentioned food trucks. Are they not working the campus area? It just seems that they are ideally positioned to serve an area where, unlike "bricks and mortar" restaurants, they can easily move on when students are not present- summer, semester and Spring breaks, etc.

There's a taco truck near me that has authentic street tacos for $2 a piece-or 3 for $5-my favorite is steak, cilantro, and onions. That would kill on campus.

Very broad assumption. Not your style. I mean....how do you know this? All of them are broke? I'm guessing this is implied teal.

Would it? That's $5 more than an already paid for meal at the dining halls. Undoubtedly it would get some business but if there was a market for it food tricks would go there.

TAMU opened a food truck park on campus a few years ago.  It closed within a year because students weren't going and that was before current inflation. It admittedly wasn't in the best location but it was still in a area with plenty of foot traffic

I believe it would. Park on the street near the bars between 10 and 2 on Friday and Saturday night. That's the whole point of food trucks, being mobile and hitting the hotspots.

Yes. That's why the bars are empty every weekend.
