ARAMARK Higher Education officially joined the Lacombe community on August 21, 2013 as the food service provider at Canadian University College. “ARAMARK has a reputation for providing top quality food service at other post secondary institutions and we are looking forward to that same service here at Canadian University College,” said Stacy Hunter, CUC Vice President for Student Services. “We are excited to begin serving the University community,” said Jeff Marcellus, ARAMARK. “Our goal is to enhance the dining environment and experience for students, faculty and staff, and to build partnerships across the campus community.”
A leading provider of dining, facilities and conference center management to colleges, universities, and preparatory schools, ARAMARK serves over 600 institutions across North America. ARAMARK provides residential dining and retail operations such as convenience stores, late-night eateries and branded restaurants. In 2013 ARAMARK was chosen by Fortune magazine as one of the World’s Most Admired Companies, and by the National Business Group as a Best Employer for Healthy Lifestyles. ARAMARK was the only global food and facility services provider to receive the World’s Most Ethical Companies honour for 2013 from The Ethisphere Institute.
ARAMARK has already begun working with different groups on campus to plan engaging events and get involved with campus initiatives. They have been in full force for the past few weeks preparing and setting up for a much-anticipated opening. The dining hall will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which include cereal, hot entrées, deli, soup, salad bar, grab and go items, beverages, snacks and more. Students, faculty and staff can expect to see programs such as “Healthy for Life,” “Get the Good Stuff,” “Voice of the Customer,” as well as monthly promotions and events.
Canadian University College and ARAMARK are working closely together to bring the Lacombe community great tasting food and an awe-inspiring campus dining experience. Watch out for ARAMARK as they will be involved in many campus events in the coming weeks.
