Supplier Diversity

ARAMARK understands that a mosaic of backgrounds, styles, perspectives, values and beliefs adds value to our workforce, our workplaces and our business partners.

We are comprised of unique individuals who, together, make the company what it is and what it can be in the future. Only when all individuals contribute fully can the strength and vision of ARAMARK be realized.

Our Principles for Valuing Diversity

  • Because we are committed to being a company where the best people want to work, we champion a comprehensive diversity initiative.
  • Because we thrive on growth, we recruit, retain and develop a diverse workforce.
  • Because we succeed through performance, we create an environment that allows all employees to contribute to their fullest potential.

ARAMARK’s Commitment to Supplier Diversity

Understanding and mirroring the diversity of our clients and customers -- in various communities around the world -- allows us to provide superior service offerings, effectively utilize diverse suppliers, and differentiate ourselves from our competitors. As an employer, we represent the full range of the world’s diverse population and believe our suppliers should also represent the diversity of the communities in which we live and work.

ARAMARK looks for high-performance companies offering superior quality, reliability and value. We are committed to pursuing, developing and supporting strategic partnerships with businesses owned and operated by minorities and women, as well as small disadvantaged organizations, who share our values.

If your company is a certified minority or women-owned and operated company, and you are interested in applying to be an ARAMARK vendor, please submit your preliminary information. This information will be reviewed and if appropriate, you may be invited to formally apply as an approved ARAMARK vendor.
