Newly Renovated Iowa Memorial Union Boasts an E&G Bistro

June 9, 2015

E&G is pleased to announce the opening of our location on the campus of the University of Iowa!  Training began early last week and the site officially opened for business on June 3, the same day as Freshman Orientation, which made for a very busy sales!  Top sandwich sellers included the Narmer, Flash, and Comet Candy.

Franchise Business Consultant, Eric Saltz, had this to say about the Grand Opening, “The [University of Iowa] team did a great job executing operations as a whole.  Their passion, positive attitudes, and solid Synergy training has been the backbone of this opening.  I really couldn’t have asked for a better group to work with!”

The E&G is situated in the Iowa Memorial Union.  What is most remarkable about this location is that it suffered a severe flood in 2008.  State-wide, this disaster cost over $64 billion in damages.  The basement and first few floors on the union took on water, some places exceeding 8 feet high!  The effected areas were subsequently closed and the university began plans to reclaim and reopen.  Erbert & Gerbert’s is honored to be among the first to be included in this renovated facility and excited for the students of the University of Iowa who have long-awaited the use of their union once again.
