University of Missouri - Brady Commons

Columbia, Missouri

New Food Court

Brady Commons was a large scale addition and renovation on the existing student center at the University of Missouri. This addition included an impressive new food service facility to serve their student population. The new facility is home to a sushi bar, coffee shop, Wood Stone pizza ovens and a self service shop. The new plan includes eight different retail food venues as well as a central kitchen with storage and warewashing areas. The venues were paired to allow shared back-of house storage and prep space enabling them to operate with limited kitchen support throughout the day. The foodservice space is approximately 21,000 sq. ft.

The various concepts include Infusion Cafe which is a coffee shop with beans roasted on site as well as a display bakery; Kate & Emma’s Deli with fresh salads and sandwiches; Sunshine Sushi with a counter seating display makeup station; Do Mundo’s Brazilian barbeque venue; Mort’s Grill offering burgers and fries; and Pomodoro’s pizza and pasta concept featuring a stone hearth pizza oven. Additional venues include a diner area with rustic shack theme that incorporates a variety of gaming equipment and a convenience store with outside access for extended hours of operation.
