Ribbon-cutting held for Einsteins Bros. Bagels
March 8, 2022
The Durant Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday for Einstein. Bros. Bagels, located across from the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
The new dining and gathering spot was funded with capital investment from Sodexo and auxiliary revenue.
Einsteins is open for breakfast and lunch, with a menu that includes bagels, salads, wraps, sandwiches, desserts, and a full-service coffee bar now crafting Caribou Coffee. It is also the first Einstein Bros. at a university to feature the convenience of a drive-thru. It is located on University Avenue, next to the SE Barnes & Noble Bookstore.
“Although it has only been open a short time, Einsteins has already proved to be popular with our students, faculty, and staff, as well as the local community,’’ said Southeastern president Thomas Newsom. “It provides a third option for our students to utilize their meal plans (others are cafeteria and Magnolia Eatery). We are delighted that our partnership with Sodexo and Einstein Bros. has enabled us to to bring this well-known national brand to Durant.’’
