“Our newest location at the Health Sciences and Business Administration Building on the VSU [Rea and Lillian Steele] North Campus is [a] full-scale [restaurant]. Any item that you see on the Einstein’s website you will see on our menu,” she added.
“With the … Coca-Cola [Freestyle] machine, Einstein’s adds that extra pizzazz to the newness of the Health Sciences and Business Administration Building — and we’re excited to be a part of the North Campus family.”
