When General Mills employees need a quick bite to eat, they don’t have to go far to get it.
In fact, they don’t even have to leave the building. General Mills, a leading manufacturer and marketer of consumer food products, recently entered into a three-year vending and refreshment services agreement with ARAMARK, a global leader in managed services.
ARAMARK has installed 58 vending machines for more than 3,500 employees in four General Mills locations in Minneapolis. These machines keep employees on-site throughout the workday with popular snack items and wide selection of options.
General Mills employees can recharge around-the-clock at convenient vending stations fully stocked with refreshments including candy, snacks, sodas, juices, and iced teas.
A growing number of companies including General Mills, one of Fortune’s 1999 Top 100 Companies to Work for in America, are relying on employee-focused perks to motivate employees.
“We appreciate the continued efforts of our employees and want to keep them happy and satisfied,” said Anita Hall, General Mills Facilities Manager. “Through a variety of quality products and popular brands, ARAMARK enables us to satisfy our employees with convenient refreshments throughout the workday.”
ARAMARK welcomes General Mills to its client list, which grows by 200 new companies a week. ARAMARK’s clients cover all areas from healthcare to consulting to financial services to technology.
“A growing number of companies like General Mills recognize the need to keep valued employees happy,” said Richard Wyckoff, President of ARAMARK Refreshment Services.
“Our focus is on helping our clients do just that. By providing customer-focused vending and refreshment programs, we’re helping companies keep their employees motivated and satisfied.”
