Update on Franklin cafe and lobby coffee kiosk
Plans are moving forward for refurbishing the Eden Café, the café on the first floor of the Franklin building, which has been closed since the electrical fire in October.
“We received construction documents for the café on Friday and are in the process of sending the project out to contractors for bids,” said Building and Administrative Service Center Director Steve Murray.
While work continues to restore the café, Murray added, he will be bringing in some interim vendors to provide morning and lunchtime food and beverage service to help fill the gap until construction is completed on the new and improved café. So we’ll be seeing some different faces and some new choices at the coffee kiosk in the Franklin lobby over the next several weeks.
Construction on the new café should be under way soon.
