Coaches Corner Selected as Name of SDC Sandwich Shop

HOUGHTON, Mich. — Coaches Corner is the name of the new sandwich shop in the Student Development Complex. Michigan Tech student Charlie Temple submitted the name idea and will win the prize of 10 free sandwiches and beverages for a year at the shop.

Coaches Corner will be open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will also remain open during home Tech athletic events in the building.

Menu items include the full suite of Starbucks coffee drinks, hot and cold sandwiches, chef and ceasar salads, breakfast sandwiches and burritos, soup and snacks.

The name Coaches Corner was chosen because of its location in the building and its proximity to photo murals of legendary Tech coaches Verdie Cox, Ted Kearly and Omer LaJeunesse. The shop will be branded with photos of other past Huskies’ skippers as well as current coaches.

Coaches Corner is scheduled to open to the public Wednesday (Aug. 28).
