    I have worked for sodexo for almost 8 years as a lead in EVS and aramark is trying to buy out our contract. I work at a small hospital in NC and I don't know anything about this company. But i love sodexo and what they have done for us cause I use to work directly for the hospital. any info would help me out please. Thanks.

    I have worked for both. They are, simply put.....food service company's.

    Sodexo is a subsidiary of Marriott.

    What's probably happening is that Aramark is in a bidding war with Sodexo at the place you work.

    You're just going to have to wait and see.

    If Aramark wins the bid, you may or may not be out of a job.

    Some contract negotiations are figured so that employees stay and join the new company.

    Some not so much.

    Good luck.

    They are not trying to buy whole company. They are trying outbid for a specific location.

    sorry compter when down.

    like I said sodexo took over all GSK locations. I was then transferred to a large sports complex that Aramark had where I currently work as a production chef. Iwas very pleased with both companies on how it was handled.

    good luck

    Is Aramark trying to buy out your contract or has the facility put the business out to bid.  Those are 2 very different scenarios.
