Exclusions — There are two locations on campus where A’viands, our contracted University Dining Services provider, can provide and sell alternative products to the Pepsi beverage offerings. The Corner Store on the second floor of the Union and the Garden Café on the first floor of the library will have limited space for non-Pepsi products.

Farewell, and a thank-you, to Konop — The pouring rights contract with Pepsi means for the first time in 40 plus years the Konop Companies of Green Bay will not be providing service and support to the University community. On behalf of UWGB, Warpinski writes, “Many thanks goes out to the Konop Companies, their staff, and the Konop family for their excellent support of UW-Green Bay and service through their manual, snack, and beverage vending services.”
