University Catering

Our Story

In 1998, the Fawcett Conference Center opened a coffee cart in the Fisher College of Business to provide light breakfast and lunch options. The convenient grab and go menu concept was very popular and four additional coffee carts were opened across Ohio State's campus. The concept was named Oxley's On The Go. In 2001, the base of operations for Oxley's On The Go moved from the Fawcett Conference Center to the Department of Campus Dining Services in Raney Commons. Oxley's On The Go began to offer catered box lunches as an additional service from the original cart concept. Rave reviews soon followed and the box lunch business boomed by word of mouth. In 2003, Oxley's On The Go continued to develop and expand the catering menu and grew to become a full service catering department in 2005. The "On-The-Go" name was perfect for the coffee cart and box lunch concept, but did not adequately represent "full service catering." In 2006 many of the menu offerings were formalized and the name of the catering department was changed to University Catering.
