A New Look for Uncle Phil’s Express

Before we begin, we must ask; what do you know about Uncle Phil’s Express?

For some, the title “Uncle Phil’s Express” may not mean much. For others, it’s viewed as a saving grace in a fast-paced college environment.

For those who don’t recognize the name, Uncle Phil’s Express is Miami University’s very own line of sandwiches, wraps, salads, snacks and other side items that are available across campus, particularly in the markets. Ever grabbed a packaged PB&J to-go from MacCracken, or reached for a Chicken Caesar Salad in the clear plastic containers? That’s our Uncle Phil’s Express line.

Named after Phillip “Uncle Phil” Shriver himself, Uncle Phil’s Express has been the go-to, quick meal on the Miami University campus for years, giving students a quick salad between classes or a cold sandwich for the walk back to the dorm to eat later.

This semester though, we decided that the menu needed a reboot of sorts. So, to go along with a fresh new logo, we have revamped our offerings through Uncle Phil’s Express, offering a variety of convenient and delicious items that include a wider selection of healthy, on-the-go options.

The Vegan Veggie Garlic Wrap, which is absolutely delicious.
