Trinity Services Group would like to introduce ourselves. We are the new contractor that will be operating the Government Center Cafeteria starting May 20th.
We hope you will join us over the next few weeks and check out our new program and menus as they evolve. The reason I say as they evolve, is that due to time restrains, not all of our equipment is in and or installed. With that being said, we do have enough of the equipment and programs ready to roll to get started with what we believe will make everyone happy.
Our new Management Team is as follows…
- Lyn Rader is our on-site General Manager
- Lenny Crooms is our Operations Manager
- Melissa Taylor is our Dining Room Manager
Trinity has put together a menu of a wide variety of offerings. All menu items will be of high quality and presented in an appealing way. You will be able to come to the dining room and relax while enjoying your meal or take it to go. The picnic tables outside will be maintained, kept clean, and will have umbrellas for shade. We will have grab and go items available so if you are in a hurry you can get in and out very quickly. Breakfast will also be a new addition to the program. We will have a variety of breakfast items available. We realize that time is an issue for breakfast. We will have items that are fresh made but with a very quick grab-and-go style of service.
The following is a list of menu items that we plan to offer daily. This menu can evolve based on things that you would like to see going forward. Please feel free to talk to Lyn Rader and Melissa Taylor at any time. Give them feedback and make suggestions. We will listen, you are the customer and we want to have a program offering items that will satisfy everyone.
- Salad Bar will have a wide variety of made fresh daily items. The salad bar will be sold by weight so you can make it a meal or just have a small side salad.

- Burgers are handmade and fresh. We will have a fix-ins bar that will allow you to build that custom burger your way.

- American Classic daily specials. A revolving menu of home-style favorites like Meat Loaf, Fried Fish, Roast Beef, Chicken Dijon, Baked Ham Steaks, Stir Fry, Fried Shrimp and much more. These daily specials will be ready for you when you come in so you will be able to spend your time enjoying your meal instead of waiting on it to cook. These will be moderately priced and can be dine in or take out.
- A wide variety of popular deserts that will include some Fresh Baked Items, Cakes, Pies, Home Made Cookies and more.
- Grab-and-go items will also be available. Pre-made Sandwiches and Salads and then we have those fresh baked cookies again.
I could go on, but the fact is we plan to listen to your comments and build a program that will have every one talking.
We will open at 7:30 Monday morning and will be open all day until about 3 PM.
We look forward to seeing you at the Island Café! read more...

Balfour Beatty Awarded $22 Million Contract for New Route on N.C. 133/Long Beach Road
RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation has awarded Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc. of Atlanta, Ga., a $22 million contract to construct a new route to link N.C. 87/N.C. 133 and N.C. 211 to ease congestion near Southport in Brunswick County.
The Long Beach Road Extension project will be a two lane road linking N.C. 87/N.C. 133 and N.C. 211. At one end of the project, near the intersection of N.C. 211 and N.C. 133/Long Beach Road, a bridge will replace the culvert at Jump and Run Creek. A second bridge will be constructed in a new section of roadway.
“This new link will improve mobility through the area, which will help tourists as well as business travelers,” said Karen Fussell, P.E., NCDOT Division 3 engineer.
Construction of the 3.4-mile road can begin as early as April 29, and is scheduled for completion of all but landscaping by Nov. 15, 2015. Final completion is expected in May 2016.
Some detours will be needed while the culvert is replaced with a bridge, so Long Beach Road/N.C. 133 will be open throughout construction.
This is one of 27 contracts totaling $106.9 million awarded by NCDOT in March for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The bids received on the projects awarded came in about 5.3 percent, or $5.9 million, below NCDOT estimates. read more...
