The Shared Vision: Enhance visitors’ arrival to the University of Minnesota – Morris through a remodeled welcome center.
The Innovative Design: The Information Center was remodeled to emphasize a sense of welcome through hospitality and modern finishes. The coffee bar Higbies was added, providing gourmet coffee, fresh food options, and enhanced grab-and-go items. Finishes were respectful of existing areas, while also taking the Information Center in a complimentary, new direction.
According to management, Higbies and the new Information Center are a big hit. Both customer count and retail sales have increased significantly.
