Food Services Changes at HCC
After 10 years of service to Hillsborough Community College, Lackmann Culinary Services will be replaced Sodexo America starting in July as our new food services provider. Sodexo was selected based on their branded concepts: Pizza Hut Express/Wing Street (DM), Sandella’s (DM, BR, YB), Jazzman’s Café (DM), Café a la Carte (PC) and Simply to Go (SS, YB), and their impressive sustainability programs. In addition, Sodexo will provide three levels of catering services and received rave reviews from SGA leadership and many others who sampled their food during open forums and presentations.
This was a long and thorough process that has resulted in a promising future for HCC’s food services. Also, I would like to thank all that participated in the food services survey. The survey was successful in gathering pertinent information; ultimately used to select the best food services concepts and provider for Hillsborough Community College. Sodexo staff is already on-site working to ensure a smooth transition across the College.
Accelerated transition efforts will be most visible beginning June 25, 2009. Lackmann will end their meal service to the College at 2:00 P.M. Friday, June 26th and Sodexo will continue their preparations immediately thereafter so that Sodexo food services operations may begin Monday, June 29th, albeit, amid COMING SOON banners and some temporary walls. The complete implementation of the Sandella’s concept, scheduled for the C-Store, will be implemented later in the Fall semester.
