Transcript Chili's too served its last maragarita and burger on May 13, ARAMARK officials said restaurant closed because it was not producing enough revenue. Brianna Leigh Morrison CHILI'S TOO NO MORE Eatery closes to give way for new student lounge By Reesha Brown While some UH students bid farewell to fellow graduates on May 13, others dined in for the last time at their favorite on-campus restaurant. Since August 2006, Chili's Too has been the convenient go-to restaurant existing to meet every hungry patron's culinary needs during lunch hours. But due to a steady decline in foot traffic, the beloved casual dining eatery, once located downstairs at the University Center, has closed its doors. "People vote with their feet and what we found since Chili's has been open, with every passing year with that particular concept, Chili's did not meet the demands of the student body as a whole. Traffic has fallen off considerably," ARAMARK's Director of Operations Geoff Hebertsaid. Chili's Too, a modest version of the national food chain, Chili's, provided the campus community with a smorgasbord of menu options and a quaint place to socialize before and after classes. At one point, the restaurant was considered the spot for sports enthusiasts and beer drinkers, but competition from other businesses, such as Taco Bell located in the center of UH and The Den, a bar on the tail end of campus, made it challenging to attract more customers. "When the Den opened up across the street, there was a place for students to call their own and go in the evenings and have a beer and grab something to eat, that obviously impacted the business," Herbert said. "It's easier to park over by The Den, than it is to park by Chili's. So it's hard for anyone coming from off campus to go to it." In an effort to increase revenue and meet demands, UH Dining Services - ARAMARK made considerable changes to the restaurant, including trimming hours and shortening days - making Chili's Too an even less convenient choice for the average evening student or night- shift employee. Some students believe the shift in hours helped contribute to the restaurant's closing. Food and supply chain management senior and member of the school's food and services committee, Tushar Chawla said the inconvenience in business hours and location of Chili's Too was bad for business. "In terms of revenue, this place wasn't giving ARAMARK enough revenue to run it," Chawla said. "In terms of students, Chili's is underground. It has no phone coverage. College students can't do without that. And then we have a Wendy's here and the rates are really competitive. Chili's is really expensive. So why would someone want to come to a UH Chili's to eat? It doesn't make sense. I don't really mind (it closing) because it's going to become a hangout for students." In an effort to replace Chili's too, the University plans to open a Taco Cabana in August 2012 at the new Robertson Stadium parking garage. But some students are not too pleased with the idea. "I'm mad, and I think that Taco Cabana is not an equal trade," Business finance and marketing junior WandoOkogwu said. "I really liked Chili's and I didn't want them to close." The Chili's Too space is expected to be completely renovated during the summer and will reopen as a student lounge during the fall. [52] Inside the Pride
