Local vendors to remain at NMSU's Frenger Food Court

New Mexico State University has been negotiating with Aramark, an international company that provides food services on campus, over the future operation of Frenger Food Court, a popular site at NMSU.

uested and received a proposal from the company for the continued operation of the food court," said Angela Throneberry, director of auxiliary services at NMSU. "It did not provide the financial return to the university that we felt was necessary. And as we have said before, this is a business decision."

After evaluating the Aramark proposal, Throneberry said the university decided to meet with the local vendors who currently operate food services in the food court and offer them the opportunity to meet new contractual terms that would be competitive with the Aramark proposal.

"The five current vendors have given verbal approval to the new contract terms," Throneberry said.

The contracts with NMSU would be for a two-year term through June 30, 2008, she said, and she expects the contracts to be finalized within the next 30 days.
