State....The State Fair really began as an exhibition for agriculture, and N.C. State has a long history of agriculture,” Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Thomas Stafford said. Stafford added that with a location so close to campus and with people coming from all over the state to visit, many may decide to come over and visit campus. Since the State Fair is one of the top attractions in North Carolina, it is a great opportunity for students, faculty and staff to interact with the general public on a level they may not have access to normally. “So they come to ride the rides, but maybe they’re walking around the agricultural booths...or they see the fact

State or looking for any university in general,” Wood said, “and just kind of ‘Oh that’s who does this and that’s who does that. Oh, and they’re just down the street. Let’s drive through and see what it looks like.’” Held during the State Fair every year, NCSU’s Open House on Oct. 15 brought in more than 8,000 visitors, according to Stacy Fair, director of the E. Carroll Joyner Visitor Center,
although she says the date has more to do with convenience, application deadlines and high school fall breaks than the presence of the State Fair. “Open House, because it’s for prospective students, we always want to have it at a time when it’s optimal for them to visit and a lot of folks come to the fair anyway, but then we also look at when the SAT and ACT are being held,” Nicole Wood, director of communication, said. “All those factors fall into place, and it makes for a good turn out at the event,” Fair added.
flicts. Their current location was appropriate for their initial start three years ago, but due to their current success, they have grown out of their Franklin Street location. They have little space, no coolers and limited parking for their workers, who often have to arrive to start the baking day very early in the morning. Sugarland is reconsidering resigning the lease on Franklin Street. New parking regulations by the city of Chapel Hill have made business tougher. They hope to have a decision made regarding the status of the store on Franklin Street very soon. If they are to move and not expand, they will be welcoming all of the current 26 employees to work at the new Raleigh location. Regardless of the move or expansion, they hope to hire around 15 to 20 new members at their new location, several of whom they expect to be NCSU students. However, they expect most of the pastry chefs and gelato makers to continue on with them to their Raleigh location. Ryan has currently hired extra baking staff in order to train them at the current location before the split or the move occurs. With the new location

being twice as large as the current location, Ryan conveyed her great excitement about the new store. She hopes to also be able to experiment and offer a potential brunch menu over the weekend at the Cameron Village location along with their current products. Both Ryan and her husband traveled to Italy and learned to make gelato under various traditional gelato maestros. Ryan still writes every gelato recipe and then trains her two gelato staff members to recreate her recipes precisely. Her pastry chefs all have strong backgrounds with degrees from renowned culinary institutes. “The cake decorators both have art degrees, so we have a knowledgeable staff,” Ryan added. “Each four ounce serving of gelato made at Sugarland has around 90 to 140 calories, whereas Coldstone’s four ounce servings contain around 400 calories, so this is definitely a healthier alternative,” Ryan said. Ryan said she is not worried about competition from Goodberry’s or The Cupcake Shoppe

near the new location. “Nobody does what we do,” she said, “and once the customers taste our products I am sure they will be coming back for more. I believe we have no competition.” Christy Holdsclaw, a freshman in psychology, said she was looking forward to the store’s arrival. “I love cupcakes and gelato, and Cameron Village is pretty close, so I am very excited about their opening and will definitely be trying it out,” she said. The new location is expected to open beside Priscilla of Boston in Cameron Village somewhere between Valentine’s Day and April 1. Katrina also mentions there will be a grand opening party with lots of free products, as they are prepared to start off with a big bang. John Pharr, senior vice president for Regency, said, although only paperwork is left, nothing is set in stone however, because the costs involved haven’t been laid out yet. He said he has seen deals fall through this late. “She is still in that vital discovery phase. We’re hopeful.”
