New food director took charge in April

Laramie County Community College hired a new director of Food Services in February. Ken Coder started at LCCC in April.

Coder moved here from Boston, accompanied by his wife. Coder said he and his wife had been wanting to move West. “In February we got the final say,” he said.

Before coming to LCCC, Coder said he ran retail for Sodexo at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Seventy-five people were on Coder’s team and together they had $7 million in sales a year, he said.

Coder said he has plans for the LCCC cafeteria. “I would like to bring stability, better interaction and communication between students and faculty, and incorporate student backgrounds into the food,” Coder said. “Also, build up cliental. Most people don’t even know about Coffee 101.” Coffee 101 is the new coffee bar in the Pathfinder building.

Coder said he and his wife had been wanting to move West. “In February we got the final say.”

Coder explained what his day consists of. “My daily schedule consists of financials, HR, making sure my team is good, safety, compliance with regulatory, interaction with students and faculty, and overseeing catering.”
