ARAMARK International has expanded its relationship with Airbus Deutschland to provide dining services to approximately 21,000 employees at seven Airbus locations across Germany, it was announced today. Under a five year agreement with sales estimated to total up to $14 million per year, ARAMARK will operate restaurants, kiosks and retail shops, as well as the aircraft manufacturer’s vending and catering operations.
For the past 10 years, ARAMARK has provided food service at the Airbus fuselage manufacturing facility in Nordenham. With the expanded relationship, ARAMARK will hire approximately 140 employees to serve Airbus operations in Hamburg Finkenwerder, Hamburg Fuhlsbuttel, Stade, Varel, Bremen and Buxtehude. Previously, Airbus Deutschland’s food service operations at these locations were managed by a combination of in-house capabilities and an outside food service provider.
“As one of the largest food services companies in Germany, we believe ARAMARK is well positioned to meet Airbus Deutschland’s need for integrated single-source food service management – from business dining services to conference services to event catering and vending.”
ARAMARK also is planning events for Airbus employees to launch the new food service program.
“ARAMARK’s German management team developed an innovative, quality-based strategy to support Airbus Deutschland’s goal for creative employee dining and superior food products,” Saligram said.
