A bright and stylish dining room popular among female students.
Maple was re-opened in April 2019. This restaurant was operated by the Ehime University Co-op as a full-service restaurant for five years, starting from April 2010. After that, due to circumstances on campus, the restaurant was put out to bid. Another company operated the restaurant for three years. However, it was difficult to manage the restaurant on campus. The university consulted Ehime University Co-op about this situation. As the result, Ehime University Co-op became the operator again, and the restaurant was re-opened.
The name “Maple” came from the old name of the street in front of the restaurant, “Maple Promenade”. For the renovation, Ehime University Co-op made preparations with the help of the NFUCA, aiming to operate the store in a way that would satisfy the co-op members and make it financially viable, while not destroying the overall atmosphere of the store. The menu consists of five types of dishes, including a weekly one-plate lunch, curry and spaghetti. Maple adopted a self-service style. It has been almost a year since Maple re-opened and there are still many issues to solve. However, since there are a lot of expectations with the comeback of university co-op, we are trying our best so that Maple achieves its original purpose.
