The Scoop Convenience store has been a staple in our community since 1986. The Scoop has served our students as the “go-to” spot for a late night snack, an Arizona Iced Tea, a frappe or bowl of ice cream. As conversations began about renovating our Student Center, one question that many of our students asked was how The Scoop would keep its place within the building but become an even larger resource to our community. Many students were passionate about keeping The Scoop mission, concept and tradition alive, all the while expanding its inventory, options, and overall services.

It became clear to the Office of Campus Engagement staff as well as various key players throughout the University that the only way to truly accomplish these goals was to create a partnership between our department, the University and Sodexo. Throughout the past few months, Sodexo and OCE have discussed at length how we can combine Sodexo’s expertise in food and retail management with OCE’s vision and outlook on the Student Center ideal, and we are excited to announce that this partnership has come to life.

Here is some of the progress we have made that we thought was important for the community to know about The Scoop…

1.    The hours will stay the same! We know it is important to have The Scoop open late as an option and Sodexo has agreed that this will work for them, too.

2.   Ice cream will continue to be a featured item in the store’s operation. Keeping the name “The Scoop” and not providing ice cream simply wouldn’t make sense!

3.   Sodexo and OCE are working hard in order to ensure that the jobs at The Scoop Convenience store are filled by students—more information about the hiring process for this area will be released as we get closer to the fall semester.

4.   We are very committed to developing a product line that both supports the “grab and go” needs of the campus but also supports our townhouse residents who may be looking for more basic household and food needs.


The Scoop layout starting to take place!
In order to gain a better understanding of what the Bryant community would like The Scoop to have in its inventory, we wanted to provide you with an opportunity to provide feedback on what should be offered. Below you will find a series of different options that could potentially be purchased at The Scoop next year. Please select the items that you would be most interested in purchasing. We know there are many popular items from The Scoop’s existing inventory that weren’t included—we wanted to see your opinions on potential new offerings! Thanks in advance for providing us with your insight!
