The process we undergo three times each year to make this happen is impressive…one I think you might be interested in knowing! University Club of Michigan State University 3435 Forest Road, P.O. Box 27157 Lansing, MI 48909-7157 www.universityclubofmsu.org Reservations & General Info........................353-5111 Work on a new menu begins months in advance. In fact, as we roll out this new menu on February 2, the chefs are already thinking about the next cycle— Grannemann creating new items and introducing some of them as daily specials for feedback. As a staff, we review sales figures and comments from the servers (representing the feedback they have received from you) to determine what stays and what goes. The chefs’ proposals are then analyzed for variety; options for gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan; seasonal appeal; and many other factors. Catering Department................................... 353-5112 • Marilyn Mays, Catering Sales Director • Janice Thelen, Catering Sales Manager • Stephanie Parish, Catering Sales Manager Fitness Center & Spa..................................... 353-5113 Executive Offices............................................ 353-5114 • Karen Grannemann, CEO & General Manager • John Fischette, Chief Engineer The next phase is the most unique. Several weeks before a new menu launches, we conduct a menu training session. We prepare every new dish from every menu, and our chefs introduce these items to the entire à la carte staff (about 20 people). During the presentation, they describe the ingredients, the preparation, how things can be tailored to individual preferences, and much more. The servers are given a study guide, and are invited to ask questions, take notes, and taste every dish. The final step is a menu test, which every server must successfully complete with a passing score.

Service • John Findley, Executive Chef Fax........................................................................353-1991 Hours of research, preparation, cooking, class participation, studying, testing, grading, and follow-up go into the proper implementation of every new menu. We make this sizable investment so your server can answer questions and assist you with your selections; so you aren’t told, “I don’t know, I’ve never tried it.” Dining Hours Breakfast: Monday - Friday Saturday 7:00 - 10:00 a.m. 8:00 - 11:00 a.m. Lunch: Monday - Friday 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Dinner: Tuesday - Saturday 5:30 - 9:00 p.m. Brunch: Sunday 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. This is just one of the many ways we work hard behind the scenes to make sure your Club experience is a positive one…one you will want to share with others!
