DCC Dining Launches New Mobile Ordering App

Aug. 27, 2021 -- DCC students, faculty and staff now have access to a mobile ordering app that will make their Drumlin Market dining experience quicker and easier than ever before.

This fall, under the management of Chartwells, the College’s dining provider, Drumlin Market will operate as a “ghost kitchen” or “GK” – a virtual or delivery-only kitchen. Pickup will go “contactless,” with ordering done from the convenience of a smartphone. 

“We are so excited to bring this new style of dining experience to DCC,” said Sean Herdina,
chef manager. “Not only does it allow us to offer our customers a more flexible and cost-effective dining option but gives us an opportunity to support the College’s efforts to keep the campus community safe and healthy.”

The market will continue to offer a wide range of healthy, sustainable meal choices including options such as pizza, pasta, fresh salad and deli bar. The “Drumlin GK” menu will also include daily hot entrées, including favorites such as General Tso’s chicken, fried chicken, pulled pork, tacos and other delicious choices. 

From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, market menu items will be virtually accessible in two ways – through the ordering kiosk located at the front of Drumlin Market or via the brand-new mobile ordering app, Boost. The app is free and can be downloaded for both Apple and Android devices from the App Store or Google Play. When setting up an account, users need to select Dutchess CC as their location and add a payment option, such as credit or debit cards or Dutchess Dollars. Users can select a pickup time that works around their class or work schedule. No waiting in line! Cash customers can still order at the counter if necessary.

DCC joins a number of colleges and universities across the country at which Chartwells has successfully opened ghost kitchens and launched Boost mobile ordering platforms. The select group includes Colgate University, Babson College, Northeastern University, UMass Dartmouth, Iona College, Monroe Community College, the Manhattan School of Music and Marymount Manhattan College.
