SDSM& T ENTERS NEW ERA IN DINING SERVICES
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) has entered into
a partnership with ARAMARK Campus Services to manage its food service and dining operations for the campus’ 2200 students at its two food service sites.
“ Utilizing ARAMARK’s national buying power and expertise will be an excellent step forward for SDSM& T. This change will allow us to make more options available for our students at a variety of venues while increasing our operational efficiency,” said Tim Henderson, Director of Business and Administration for SDSM& T.
ARAMARK, a global managed services company, will operate the dining services for SDSM& T under the leadership of two individuals described by the company as two of its best managers. Dave Menzel will be the director of dining services, with Jay Quenzer assisting with operations.
ARAMARK currently is working on a renovation schedule to the Miner’s Shack snack bar located in the Surbeck Center. “ The management team is working hard to fine tune all its operations for opening day, as well as accomplish some renovations to dining areas before school starts,” said Jerry Throener, District Manager, ARAMARK Campus Services.
