raider refills

Each year the food industry distributes millions of paper and plastic cups and single-use water bottles to their customers. These beverage containers create vast amounts of pollution during the manufacturing process and most are never recycled. Hospitality Services has implemented the Raider Refill program, which contributes to saving the environment. We are selling environmentally friendly, refillable beverage containers in our retail locations in an effort to cut down on beverage container waste. We would like to encourage you to use this refillable bottle instead of disposable beverage containers to enhance your Hospitality Services experience and protect the environment. Refill your beverage at our retail locations at a reduced price and at our all-you-care-to-eat (AYCE) locations free of charge with the purchase of a meal.
