Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State serving UC's sports teams

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State has started feeding both faculty and some sports teams at the University of Cincinnati.

The MCI has taken over operation of the Faculty Club at UC. They also feed UC's football team, men's soccer team, and women's volleyball team. When the season begins, MCI chefs and students will feed UC's basketball teams and other athletic teams.

"For us, this is a great opportunity to partner with an old friend,'' said Cincinnati State President O'dell M. Owens, who formerly served as president of the UC Board of Trustees.

MCI and UC's agreement has been more than a year in the making. According to Kathleen Ruppert, director of business development and strategic initiatives and entrepreneurial development for Cincinnati State, the agreement was inspired largely by the Faculty Club's desire to enliven member interest and by Cincinnati State's desire to grow the money-making side of the Midwest Culinary Institute.

David Robinson was hired as executive chef. Michael Fagan came over from Cincinnati State campus to serve as banquet manager. Rene Howard was hired as general manger to oversee the overall operation.

The agreement calls for MCI to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner to all sports teams during the training season and most meals during the regular season.
