Order food at Anchor Express with new app

Lauren Abbott, Editor in Chief

Adding to the selection of dining options on campus, students are now able to place mo-bile orders to the Anchor Express. Through a mobile app, GET, students can place online orders to the Anchor Express located in Ryan Hall.

Mercyhurst Student Government, responsible for bringing the GET app to campus, is ex-cited for students to utilize the features it has to offer.

“MSG is thrilled to have GET mobile available for students. We believe GET will help enhance the student experience on campus” MSG president Abby Staub said.

Orders can be placed from 8 a.m. to 12:15 a.m. the next day Monday through Friday and 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 a.m. the next day Saturday and Sunday. Once logged into the app students can select the “order” menu and start creating their order.

The menu currently includes a full range of Starbucks drinks, pizzas and sandwiches. Students can customize sandwiches and pizzas to their exact likings, with prices being dis-played as they create their order.

Starbucks drinks are also customizable, and prices will be shown once a cup size is chosen.

Once students are done picking their items, students have the option of using dining dollars, bonus bucks or adding a credit/debit card to pay for the order. Once placed, the order will be sent to the Anchor Express and students just need to bring a valid form of identification, such as a driver’s license or student I.D., to pick up their order.

An additional perk is the ability to place orders ahead of time.Students can place an order at any point during the day when mobile orders are accepted and schedule a time for the order to be ready. This is particularly convenient for students with busy schedules who may not have the opportunity to stop at the Grotto Commons or 501 Grille for lunch.

“I’m very proud of this, it’s been a lot of work. I think it’s going to be a wonderful addition” said John Patterson, Director of Protective Services and a large part of this project.
