Northwestern University procurement and payment services executive director Jim Konrad said: “The university conducted a long and thoughtful process which included input from students, faculty and staff.

“It was a challenging process, and we are confident this is the best fit for the university. We are very excited to partner with Compass Group to create a premier dining experience across our campuses.”

As part of the contract, Compass Group will continue all the necessary hourly associates currently working at the university helping to offer food and services.

Prior to awarding the contract to Compass Group, the university reviewed catering proposals from two other companies, Sodexo and Aramark, which are currently offering foodservice on campus.
