The new frozen yogurt machine in Kessel, Reis and Irvy’s Froyo Robot, is unique to Pace and the first of its kind in Westchester County. This kosher, gluten-free, and self-cleansing machine arrived on campus last week and was open to students this past Friday.

According to Kevin Henriquez, Senior Director of Dining Services, this project was in the works for two years. Currently, Montclair State Univerisity is the only other college to carry the Reis and Irvy’s machine.

“The old program was tired and boring—there was no ‘wow,’” Henriquez said.

In the first day of operation, 49 cups were sold. There are currently alpine vanilla, vanilla, chocolate, and twist flavor options. Seasonal flavors, such as pumpkin spice, are expected in the future. There are two sizes to choose from, along with the option of two toppings.

“Personally, I don’t like frozen yogurt,” Henriquez said. “But I tried it this morning and it’s delicious. It tastes like Cold Stone.”

Though the machine accepts cash, credit cards, debit cards, apple pay, and google wallet, it does not accept money from students’ meal plans. This is a feature that is currently being worked on and Henriquez is confident it will be resolved. If the machine proves popular, there is a possibility for another machine to be placed elsewhere on campus.

“I think it’s good that they change things up and try different stations because we’re here for years,” junior Karina Gil said. “The frozen yogurt is definitely an improvement.”

Henriquez said he is always searching for the next improvement for Chartwells to enhance student appeal. Last year, Pace was the first place to have a Castello Coffee Machine in the Northeastern region. Later this month, in celebration of homecoming, there will be some exciting promotions going on that include a 3D Pancake Printer and T-Bone shaped pancakes.
