Giant Bistro to open next week (10/11)!

Posted on Oct. 03 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director

We are so excited to welcome the public to the Giant Bistro, the restaurant run by our Culinary Arts students and staff, starting on Oct. 11, 2016. We're looking forward to cooking and serving in a new location, right on the Marion Bypass.

We hope you'll consider visiting us for breakfast or lunch at 2201 S. Western Ave. Most weeks we are open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, except for school holidays. We do also occasionally alter hours to fulfill catering orders for various community groups. We will communicate those closures through our website and Facebook page

The Giant Bistro is a real-world learning opportunity for our Culinary Arts students, and is one of many hands-on career prep opportunities MRCC offers. MRCC enrolls students from across Grant County (not just MCS students), and we're proud to offer the public an exciting new option for breakfast and lunch in Marion!

Part of our proceeds every day go to a designated school or group. Check out our online calendar or Facebook page for more information, and spread the word about the fundraisers for the schools and groups that are near and dear to you!

We hope to see you soon!

  • MHS alum Jim Sutter, entrepreneur and philanthropist (and member of the MHS Hall of Distinction) will carry the torch on Ind. 15 at about 1:30 p.m.
  • Marion High School student Casey Reaves is among the torchbearers (in honor of his grandfather, Larry Goss, an MHS alum killed in the Vietnam War). He will carry the torch on part of the Ind. 15 portion of the route, just after 1:30 p.m. The procession is then set to pass in front of McCulloch Junior High School Junior High School just before 2 p.m., then head into downtown Marion, and then head north into Wabash County. Will you be out to watch this special procession?
  • MHS alum Wayne Seybold, Olympic athlete and former Marion mayor (and member of the MHS Hall of Distinction), will carry the torch in front of McCulloch Junior High School just before 2 p.m.
