Limestone Bay operating ASU cafeteria, open to public

The general public now has a new place to eat lunch — Athens State University.

The recently remodeled cafeteria is in the Sandridge Student Center and reopened under new management. 

Dee Green of Limestone Bay Trading Company of Mooresville took over the daily food preparation and catering responsibilities on Oct. 1.

“We are excited about this not only for our students, faculty and staff, but also to be able to invite the public at large to enjoy the services of our cafeteria,” said Mike McCoy, Athens State vice president for Financial Affairs.

Limestone Bay at Athens State is open 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.  Daily specials are offered along with standard grill options. The Sandridge Student Center is in the middle of the Athens State campus between Pryor and Hobbs streets.

“We opened a few days before the Fiddlers Convention and have been thrilled with the response,” said Green. “We feel we have a good handle on what people are wanting and are pleased to be offering it to them. Between our standard fare and our daily specials, I think we have come up with a really good menu.”
