Installed in 2002, the oven in Seattle University’s Hawks Nest Bistro is still going strong! Although this space was originally designed for our Mt. Chuckanut 4′ oven, concerns that it’s small size might not meet the demand of hungry students prompted the purchase of our Mt. Adams 5′ oven. Fast forward 11 years and this oven has served thousands of meals and continues to feed an ever growing population of close to 8,000 appreciative students, staff and visitors today. From pizza to quesadillas, burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and more!
Hats off to Bon Appetit, manager of operation. For years they have been committed to learning more about their oven and how the might use it to maximize its potential. Today they are looking at ways to expand and possibly add an even larger oven to their venue.
