Students' Entrepreneurial Endeavor Caters to Classmates' Morning Needs
by Carolyn Jummati (BAS, 2015)
It’s 8 a.m. and the dedicated students of Lexington College are traipsing in the door ready for another day of academic excitement. Along with the usual school accessories (backpacks, books, etc.), most students are also carrying the necessary morning pick-me-ups, like Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or McDonald’s coffee, along with granola bars, breakfast shakes, and other quick morning options. Not only is it a hassle for these students to go out and buy breakfast every day, the expense also adds up quickly, as most places charge at least $2.50 for a coffee or tea beverage.
However, the seniors of Lexington College have come up with a deliciously convenient solution for their fellow classmates. This semester, LexSnax officially opened for business in the Student Commons on the 5th floor. Everything from blueberry muffins and juice to hot chocolate and pumpkin spice lattes are served by members of the senior class. By the end of the opening morning, the blueberry muffins were all sold out and the halls of the school were filled with the smell of fresh coffee and tea. Having the option of buying breakfast at school is helping busy students to cut out one step from their morning routine.
For those students who have longer school schedules, LexSnax will be open in the afternoon as well. This semester's hours are M-W, 8:30-9:15 and 11:30-12:15. Week one was very successful and the students are hoping to continue LexSnax for the remainder of the year and continue into next year.
