Never understood why HC's proprietary Dining operation wouldn't want to use concessions as a way to show off their skills and shine since fewer and fewer colleges have that option and now contract out dining services.
The workers in the Dining Hall don't want to work nights.....I have asked the question to the concession workers...Same goes for the bookstore workers, that is why they don't sell at games...

A lot more to it than dining hall and bookstore workers not wanting to work nites. Trust me. Athletics has been jammed multiple times with sponsorship deals getting shot down by school admin due to current arrangements dining & the bookstore have. They'll all never be on the same page.

HC has always had a nice group of folks who work on call for alumni and other functions. They are just like the rest of us except they are making money serving at these events. What I always wondered about was the chefs and managers of Holy Cross Dining Services wanting a platform to show off their skills by offering food that is a cut above typical refreshment stand fare.
A College Administer or AD has only indirect control over on field performance, but more direct control over serving delicious food (compared to other college concessions not Parisian Bistros).
What I accept is that is not a priority for HC administrators with all their other responsibilities.
They probably don't mind the flexibility of lighter work loads during school vacations at HC.
With the pandemic, HC had many vacancies in the dining staff. Some of this was due to the Great Resignation. Many older workers quit the labor force.
Catering operates on an on-call basis. On-Call Positions
KITCHEN UTILITY, WAIT STAFF, COOKS HELPERS AND CAFETERIA HELPERS.;
The Dining Service department is, at times, looking for people who have previous experience and are looking to work in an On-Call as needed capacity for special functions.
At the Purple Knights dinner in Kimbal Dining Hall our table was served by a young woman... an alum of Villanova. She was part of the HC's COVID response team & signed to work the weekend to experience another aspect of Holy Cross. She said it was a good time.
