Seven-year catering contract revealed by college
By Andrew Merrell | 20th January 2020
One of Gloucestershire's biggest colleges has revealed details of a seven-year deal to provide its in-house catering services.
South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) has signed on the dotted line with Aramark, which will take over all the catering, food retail and hospitality services for SGS.
For those who don't known, that will see the global firm cater for SGS's almost 15,000 students across not just its Stroud campus, buts its sites at Berkeley Green, Filton and Wise.
Aramark signed one of its most high profile deals last year, joining forces with the Jamie Oliver empire in what is expected to be a 10-year partnership "delivering food concepts" across workplaces in Northern Europe, including the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Andy Slaney, chief operations Officer at SGS College, said: "We were very impressed with how Team Aramark engaged with us throughout the tender process and really listened carefully to our objectives and fully took them on board.
"Aramark's wealth of experience operating within the education sector clearly came through in our conversations - as did their drive to enhance the students' daily college experience."
Students, staff and anyone else lucky enough to be invited to dine at SGS sites can expect a new "customer-centric look and feel to all the campuses" and a new restaurant entirely planned for Berkeley, Filton and Wise campuses.
Lawrence Shirazian, managing director of Aramark Food Services UK, said: "We hope to transform the catering service at SGS and reinvent campus life.
Our new food offering is designed to meet student and staff's varying needs, with an emphasis on healthy, fresh and affordable food."
