Johnson & Wales University’s North Miami Campus dining center, The Mix, is managed by Chartwells, a division of Compass Group Inc.
The Mix seeks to provide the best in products and services for customers and guests; in many instances, food is prepared by culinary internship students. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate students with special dietary preferences based on health, religious or personal needs. Comments may be submitted to the Chartwells management team or by completing a comment card at The Mix. Details on meal plans, menus, dining events and coupons are also available online.
There are a variety of meal plan options available to campus residents.
Resident students are required to select a meal plan when they make their residence hall selection. Meal plan offerings vary based on class year and residence hall. New students (first-year students) may choose 14 or 18 meals per week. Returning students may choose 10, 14 or 18 meals per week. Full meals at The Mix consist of an entree, four sides and a beverage, or a meal equivalency at Willie's Café. Students have access to their meal plans Sunday through Saturday, one swipe per meal period. Unused meals do not roll over from week-to-week or semester-to-semester.
Every meal plan also offers flex dollars that can be used to purchase additional meals and guest meals at The Mix and retail purchases at Willie's Café. The balance declines as flex dollars are used. Flex dollars are allotted each semester and unused dollars roll over from week-to-week but expire at the end of the semester and cannot be rolled over to a new semester.
All students, faculty and staff also have the ability to purchase individual meals at the door or Wildcat Meals in blocks of 10, 25 or 50. Additional flex dollars in increments of $25 may also be purchased. Wildcat Meal blocks and additional flex dollars may be purchased online or at the Chartwells office on campus. All Wildcat Meals and additional flex dollars roll over from semester-to-semester but expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased.
Once a student has paid for the plan, they can check the status of meals and flex dollars by visiting either The Mix or Willie's Café. The student must present a valid student ID to the cashier to receive this information.
Commuter students can pay the door rate or purchase Wildcat Meals in blocks of 10, 25 or 50, as well as additional flex dollars in increments of $25. Wildcat Meal blocks and additional flex dollars may be purchased online or at the Chartwells office on campus. All Wildcat Meals and additional flex dollars roll over from semester-to-semester but expire at the end of the academic year in which they are purchased. The cost of the Wildcat Meal plan and additional flex dollars is nonrefundable.
Guests accompanied by a JWU student or employee may purchase a single meal at the door or use Wildcat Meals or flex dollars from their host's card.
Hours and days of operation vary at each location. Campus Dining is closed during holidays and semester breaks. Up-to-date listings are posted at each location and online.
Campus Dining asks that students act and dress in an appropriate manner while in the dining facilities. Specific rules may be posted. Students must present their own valid ID cards to use the meal plan. Lost or stolen cards must be reported to Campus Safety & Security to prevent unauthorized use. Students who have a lost or stolen card will receive a one-day meal pass to participate in meal services. Eco-friendly, reusable containers are available for purchase for take-out meals.
