The renewed is in place until 2019. This means Aramark will now provide services across eight catering sites instead of the previous six for the university’s 13,500 students and 1,500 staff.
Customer insight and the drive to deliver service excellence were at the core of Aramark’s proposals for a new contract. Aramark’s research led it to develop new food concepts, as well as offering a licensed Costa Coffee store in the new Riverside East building.
“We are thrilled that Aramark’s partnership with RGU is not just continuing but growing in scale,” said Deborah Burnside, Aramark director of operations for Aberdeen.
She added: “Our new and exciting concepts will help enhance the overall student experience, backed by an outstanding service. Initial feedback is excellent, and staff and students alike are enthused by the new food service in the Riverside East building.”
