WEST CAMPUS OPENS DELI

Walking into the building on the north side of Tyler Junior College West Campus, the aroma of food fills the air.

The deli, which has only been open a couple of weeks, is run by Valley Food Services. Remona Hale is the supervisor over the unit and employs two others. She was once at the Main Campus with the catering services.

“We aim to please the customers,” Hale said. “Anything we don’t have we will be more than happy to order it.”

With the exception of salads, most meals are a combo, which consists of chips, pickle spear, and a drink. The meals range from soups and salads to hot dogs and hamburgers and even barbecue. Each day has a new special. For breakfast, you can get a danish, a muffin, some cereal, or even a croissant.

Valley also has the food contract on the Main Campus, and serves food in the Rogers Student Center and in the Pirtle Technology building.
