Modern Market opened its first university campus location on January 15 in the Duncan Student Center at the University of Notre Dame. Modern Market serves artisan fare without the pomp—simple counter service with amazing, scratch-made food that nourishes the mind and body. The newest restaurant makes 27 total units for the company.
Founders Anthony Pigliacampo and Rob McColgan take a holistic approach to food and health, with a focus on food quality. McColgan, a Notre Dame alumnus, and Pigliacampo used funds from the university’s McCloskey Business Plan Competition to open the first Modern Market restaurant in Boulder, Colo. in 2009. McColgan graduated Summa Cum Laude from the university in 2002 with degrees in finance and film and then spent six years in New York with Goldman Sachs.
“This location is another way for us to deliver on our mission to serve amazing, healthy food to as many people as possible,” says McColgan. “It's an honor and privilege to be part of the incredible new Duncan Student Center, and we are thankful to the university for giving us this opportunity."
By making food from scratch, Modern Market avoids added sugar and bad fats, and through attention to sourcing, they rule out chemicals and dangerous ingredients no one can pronounce. Breakfast includes protein-packed burritos, breakfast sandwiches on a buttery Brioche bun, heart-healthy oatmeal and perfectly seasoned avocado toast. Beyond handmade soups and fresh salads packed with superfoods, expect toasted sandwiches and brick oven pizzas made with a high protein crust and cheese without the chemicals. The inclusion of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes makes it easy to find the perfect plate
