University of the Cumberlands (UC) has announced the addition of Chick-fil-A Express and Starbucks to its Williamsburg campus starting in the fall of 2017.

“Cumberlands is pleased to be able to bring Chick-fil-A Express and Starbucks to Williamsburg,” said Dr. Larry Cockrum, president of UC. “We are constantly working to create a campus environment that serves the needs of our students. We believe these restaurants will be very popular based on the positive feedback received.”

Chick-fil-A Express will be located in the University Grill on the main level of the Boswell Campus Center. The menu will include Chick-fil-A’s famous fried and grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, waffle potato fries, freshly-squeezed lemonade, milkshakes and other items. The Starbucks kiosk, which will be located on the mid-level of the Boswell Campus Center just outside the UC Bookstore, will provide a full drink menu, including the most popular Starbucks beverages.

“Both Chick-fil-A Express and Starbucks will be open to the public,” Cockrum said. “We hope the community takes time to visit campus and enjoy these two popular restaurants.”

Construction for Chick-fil-A Express is set to begin the second week of May. Chick-fil-A Express and the Starbucks kiosk are expected to be operational at the start of the fall semester in August.
