ARAMARK has been awarded a new two-year contract with Richard Huish College in Taunton, Somerset, marking a next step in the company continued growth in the further and higher education sectors.
ARAMARK has provided a full catering service for Richard Huish College since 2008, covering a main refectory, a Costa Coffee offer, grab and go outlets, vending and hospitality. The new contract builds on the company existing partnership with the college and, as part of the new contract, ARAMARK plans to invest in a 'snack wagon' - a unique grab and go mobile outlet designed to cater for students on the move, with the ability to move food services around the campus as required.
Joanne Hooper, Director of Operations for ARAMARK South West, said: "We are one of the UK most experienced catering providers in further and higher education and believe important to produce not just delicious food, but great places for students to meet, socialise and relax. In an increasingly competitive education market, we add genuine value by creating places which add to an establishment appeal to prospective students.
"We were thrilled that a recent survey of both staff and students at Richard Huish College showed that overall satisfaction with catering services is considerably higher than the ambitious targets we set ourselves. The new contract is testament to the job we're doing and the success of our focus on developing existing client services and relationships."back
