Sodexo to cater for Stirling's students

26 August 2009

Sodexo is to provide the University of Stirling with catering services to its students, staff, visitors and commercial customers in a 5 year contract worth almost £9m in total turnover and starting in October.


As part of the contract, Sodexo will invest a significant amount of funding into the refurbishing of the catering facilities at the university, including the building of a new coffee shop. Sodexo will manage the university’s main Haldane’s restaurant, offering a deli bar, salad bar and main meal provision – which includes a chef on stage each day with live theatre style cooking. The company will employ 36 members of staff to deliver catering, vending and hospitality services to the university’s 10,000 students, 2,000 staff on-site and commercial customers.

The contract includes the provision of catering services to a number of outlets, many based in the central Atrium of the Andrew Miller Building, which includes a sandwich shop, fast food bar and Stir Café, where a wide selection of sandwiches, soups, salad boxes and yogurts will be made available throughout the day – all part of Sodexo’s Unity food offer. The offer is devised with the aim of bringing the high street to the university, enabling students to spend more time in the comfort of the university campus. Sodexo will also provide a vending service and hospitality service for meetings on campus.


Graham Box, managing director, Sodexo Scotland, said: "We are delighted to have signed a contract with one of the most respected universities in Scotland and look forward to the opportunity to add value to the daily life of the students, staff and visitors. We have extensive experience of providing services to numerous universities throughout the UK and Ireland, and will work closely with our talented chefs to provide a catering service that is truly fitting of such a prestigious university".
