WKU, Aramark agree on 20-year contract for dining, catering services

Improved dining options, catering choices and new and renovated facilities are hallmarks of a 20-year contract with Aramark for dining and catering services at WKU.

The contract, which begins July 1, builds on a 20-year relationship in which Aramark has provided services at WKU, according to Brian Kuster, Vice President for Student Affairs at WKU.

Kuster said both sides have signed a letter of intent and will continue to negotiate the final details. “We expect this contract to be worth an estimated $20 million a year and will result in significant reinvestment in dining and catering services at WKU,” Kuster said.

The contract calls for a significant renovation of the Garrett Conference Center, including new food options, and spaces in the Downing Student Union and the Pearce-Ford Tower Food Court. It also calls for a new 24-hour food operation in Hilltopper Hall residence hall under construction. WKU will receive an 8 percent commission on net food sales, which will be reinvested in the restaurant and catering program, Kuster said, by expanding and updating the current 21 dining venues.
