Couch’s Corner opens at CBU

Riverside, Calif. (Oct. 8, 2019) - California Baptist University opened its newest eatery, Couch’s Corner, to the excitement of the campus community on Oct. 8.

Located at Lancer Plaza near the Campus Store, Couch’s Corner is designed for the on-the-go lifestyle. Within the establishment is Delect-a-Bowls, which offers breakfast sandwiches and cereal bowls until 10:30 a.m. and then it switches to serving build-to-order poke bowls with fresh seafood, custom sauces and a variety of fresh topping options.

Couch’s Corner also features Shake Smart, a health-conscience option that allows individuals to create custom shakes from a variety of fresh ingredients. Additionally, Shake Smart offers cold brew coffee, acai bowls, sandwiches and oatmeal.

A line formed outside of Couch’s Corner early in the morning on its first day of operation as numerous students waited eagerly to try out the new dining options.

Denis Shostak, an exercise science major, ordered a shake full of “greens” at Shake Smart.

“I think all the smoothies are going to be popular and there are lots of options that are healthy, so that’s nice to see,” Shostak said.

Brodie Arbeiter, a kinesiology senior, wanted to be among the first to eat at Couch’s Corner. 

“I am excited to have something different on campus, something healthy that will make my body feel better throughout the day,” Arbeiter said.
