Northwest Campus Dining offers curbside pickup

MARYVILLE, Mo. — Northwest Missouri State University Campus Dining is now providing curbside pickup for customers seeking a meal at its Chick-fil-A, Mooyah, or Einstein Bros. Bagels locations.

According to a news release, any customer may place an order by downloading the free “Transact Mobile Ordering” app from the Apple and Google Play stores.

“We have some national brands on our campus that aren’t available in the Maryville community, so this is a way to provide some of the services we have to the local community,” said Spencer Martin, the director of Campus Dining. “By offering curbside pickup, we create some more flexibility in the dining program.”

After downloading the app, follow these steps:

  • Select Northwest Missouri State University
  • Log in with your Google email or Apple ID. “Register email” is for Northwest email addresses only.
  • Enter a form of payment.
  • Select your order with your choice of restaurant. Select “pickup” on the top right side and choose “delivery” for curbside or “pickup” for in-store pickup. Type your vehicle description in the provided box.
  • After arriving at the selected destination, call the number on the curbside delivery stall, type in your stall number and your order will be brought to you.

In addition to curbside pickup, Campus Dining plans to introduce a loyalty program next fall that will feature contests and provide customers with opportunities to win prizes with loyalty points.
