As Oxford and the University of Mississippi continue to see unprecedented change and growth, The Inn at Ole Miss, the university’s on-campus hotel, has made improvements to keep up with the desires and needs of its guests and the community.

My Michelle’s Catering has taken over breakfast service in the McCormick Cafe, offering hot breakfast daily from 6:30 to 10 a.m. Rotating menu offerings include breakfast pizza, tacos, casseroles, scrambled eggs, grits, sweet potato hash, pancakes, waffles, biscuits with gravy, French toast and much more. Health-conscious diners can find homemade granola with yogurt, mixed grain salad with dried fruits, seasonal whole fruit and oatmeal.

Not only has breakfast changed hands, but catering as well. The Inn offers a variety of catering opportunities for special events.

“Allowing outside catering gives us the luxury of providing our customers with the best of Oxford’s culinary offerings when booking their event here at The Inn,” said Gaye Bukur, the hotel’s general manager. “These caterers can now recommend our venue for a special event they will be catering.”

Besides My Michelle’s Catering, approved caterers include A&N Catering, The Main Event, Newk’s, Oby’s, Ole Miss Catering, Party Waitin’ to Happen and Taylor Grocery.

To better manage all the new offerings, The Inn added a member to its management team. Gwen Turner, events management coordinator, serves as a liaison between clients and vendors to ensure all events at the hotel are a hit.

In conjunction with the new breakfast and catering offerings, The Inn released a new logo featuring the signature Ole Miss script.

“We want the new logo to act as a stamp of approval to show that we are the only hotel affiliated with the University of Mississippi,” said Liz Lancaster McIntyre, marketing manager. “By staying at The Inn at Ole Miss, you are supporting the Ole Miss Alumni Association and the University of Mississippi.”
