Contract extension at City College Plymouth

Aramark has been awarded a two-year extension to its catering and cleaning contract with one of the south west's largest further and higher education colleges, City College Plymouth. Starting in August 2013, the extension is worth an estimated £2.5 million over the two years and will see Aramark provide an increased range of services.

Aramark currently runs two restaurants, three Costa coffee outlets and two shops, and manages cleaning across the whole college estate. In the two-year extension, Aramark will further invest in these services with a redesigned shop at the college's Goschen site as well as an upgraded food service.

For the cleaning side of the contract, Aramark will invest in a more efficient, sustainable and environmentally-friendly cleaning system, using the latest technology.

“We're thrilled to have extended our partnership with City College Plymouth and are confident that the new services will contribute to a thriving and exciting environment for staff and students,” said Andrew Rintoul, Aramark's client relationship manager for the south and south west. “Beyond providing support services, we will also work with the college to support their programme of skills for life, work start and hospitality. This provides real work experience for up to 20 students on site.”
