South Arkansas Community College has contracted with Valley, a food-service company based in Jackson, Miss., for all food services on campus, including those at the new El Dorado Conference Center.
The grand opening of the conference center is set for 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 18 with keynote speaker Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe. An open house will continue until 6 p.m.
Menus for the facility currently are being developed and will be revealed at the grand opening.
With the opening of the center comes employment opportunities. Valley is seeking a chef manger to operate the kitchen as well as several hourly employees. SouthArk will hire three additional workers for custodial and engineering positions.
The new facility will start hosting events in early March, with the cafe’s opening in mid March.
