Cougar Country is open on the WSU Pullman Campus!

PULLMAN, WASH – This morning a new chapter is beginning. The iconic Pullman burger joint, Cougar Country opened inside the CUB today! They announced their expansion onto campus in July.

Their new location is on the east end of the ground floor of the CUB, across from Cougar Prints Plus.

Their primary location is on Grand Avenue. 

Cougar Country inside the CUB  is initially opening with just an espresso menu and new breakfast options. The well-known burgers, fries and chicken baskets will hopefully come later in the week once enough staff are trained.

This is why the other side of the location is closed.

“Our Manager is saying she wants to open is about a week, but she’s expecting it to open in a week and a half or a little longer”, staff member, Milai Gilbert said.

The espresso  options are actually from another Pullman business, Zoe’s Coffee and Kitchen.

Lines outside Cougar Country were forming when I showed up and people were eager to check out which items were available today at the WSU campus location.

According the CUB’s website, Cougar Country’s hours of operation are 7:30am-2pm, Monday through Friday.

It seems as if the opening was the perfect after Halloween pick me up here on campus.
