The Minot Air Force Base flight kitchen has been making various renovations to their facility as part of the Force Improvement Program.

"The flight kitchen is getting some much needed upgrades to enhance customer's experience," said Daniel Hawley, 5th Force Support squadron deputy director.

The interior of the building will be renovated which will increase seating capacity and expand the kitchen.

The renovations will include all new equipment, appliances, storage, furniture and flooring. There will also be a café style dining area as well as an expanded serving line offering a snack line, main line and salad/beverage bar. 

"The renovations are part of the Force Improvement Program and are scheduled to be finished around September of 2015," Hawley said.

This project is partnership with the 5th Civil Engineer squadron, the 5th Contracting Squadron and the 5th Force Support squadron.

Although the Dakota Inn dining facility is under construction as well, Airmen who usually dine at the flight kitchen can eat at many other facilities on base such as Burger King, Rockers Bar and Grill, Jimmy Doolittle Center, Kelley's Place, B-Fifty Brew, the Exchange food court and the Commissary.
