Boar’s Head Deli chicken tender subs will be coming to the University of Central Florida Student Union.
The deli opened Monday, April 10 as a pop-up restaurant to replace Huey Magoo’s and Asian Chao and has already seen continuous foot traffic from students and faculty during business hours.
“Boar’s Head was a great selection because it filled the desire for fresh and healthy options and it was an easy transition for the existing setup,” said UCF senior communications coordinator Mark Schleub. “It will remain open until we have the new restaurants in phase one of the food court expansion complete.”
Student government leaders met with Aramark to decide on the delicatessen due to its healthy food options and popularity among local students. The decision has largely been met with positive reaction, although has seen a fair amount of objection from students in favor of Huey Magoo’s.
Boar’s Head is a premium deli service and provider that can be found in Publix delis across Central Florida. Every Floridian knows Publix chicken tender subs. The next best thing, Boar’s Head chicken tender subs, will be making their way to the Student Union.

The premium deli offers sandwiches, wraps, and salads and will remain open until phase one of the Student Union food court expansion is complete.
Boar’s Head has opened at the University of Central Florida Student Union in place of two concurrent restaurant closings that occurred early in the semester.
In Spring 2017, Huey Magoo’s and Asian Chao closed due to repeated failed health inspections, leading to the termination of their lease. Despite the infractions, students expressed enthusiasm for the chicken tender and Asian cuisine restaurants.

To act as a ‘pop-up’ restaurant for Huey Magoo’s and Asian Chao, Boar’s Head will remain until the lease to a new, permanent restaurant begins as part of UCF and Aramark’s plan to overhaul the Student Union in a multi-million dollar renovation.
Hours and a menu for Boar’s Head have been provided:
Knight News has communicated with the UCF News & Information Office for more on the opening.
“Aramark met with leaders from Student Government to have a discussion about what they would like to see for the short term concept in that space,” said Mark Schleub, senior communications coordinator.
