    Contract With Chartwells Extended Until Summer 2009

    The ten-year contract with the food-service provider Chartwells and Stony Brook University was originally set to end this year, but has been postponed by ‘one additional year,’ extending the contract until June 30, 2009, according to Angela Angello, the director of marketing and communications Faculty Student Association. Campus dining heavily relies on Chartwells, a division of Compass Group USA, which claims to be the ‘leading foodservice provider’ in North America, basing its menu on healthy alternatives ‘for a healthy lifestyle.’ The FSA is responsible for choosing the contractor that provides the West Campus dining services. However, while Chartwells is responsible for the West Campus, the FSA independently runs the dining at the Medical Center and Stony Brook Southampton. Jasmine in the Wang Center is not included in this contract. Chartwells is still in business for at least one more year ‘in order to provide an opportunity to better evaluate meal plan options, relative to changing needs of the student body and the University’s master plan and’hellip;for expansion of dining services in both the center of campus and residence halls,’ said Agnello in an e-mail. When the bidding begins, which is undetermined for now, Aramark may re-emerge as a potential bidder or Sodexho Inc., and perhaps the decision may be to renew the contract and stick with Chartwells.
