Aramark Celebrates And Honors Extraordinary Associates Worldwide

Oct. 15, 2018

Two hundred of Aramark’s outstanding team members from around the world have been named to the company’s Ring of Stars, and will be recognized during an exclusive celebration this week. 

The 2018 Aramark Ring of Stars class is made up of frontline employees who proudly serve the company’s customers and clients as chefs, cashiers, stadium hawkers, servers, route drivers, custodians and in many others roles. They work diligently where people learn, work, play and recover - including schools and universities, hospitals, sports venues, on delivery routes and in businesses of all kinds. 

“These dedicated, talented, and incredibly hard-working Service Stars are the foundation of Aramark and I am very proud to welcome them to the 2018 Ring of Stars class,” said Eric J. Foss, Aramark’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “These 200 team members live our mission every day, enriching and nourishing the lives our guests around the world, and I want to thank them for their dedication to our clients, consumers, communities and to Aramark.” 

This year’s class was selected from more than 1,200 nominations from 19 countries around the world where Aramark operates. The Ring of Stars winners receive an all-expense paid trip for them to attend a special program honoring them in Boca Raton, Florida. Their contributions and attributes will be acknowledged and celebrated by Eric Foss and the Aramark executive leadership team, with each honoree receiving a special gold ring to commemorate the achievement. Ring of Stars winners will also enjoy entertainment and activities throughout the four-day event that is designed especially for them. 

In addition, their stories and photos will be showcased permanently in Aramark’s Hall of Stars at its global headquarters in Philadelphia. 

Winners were nominated by co-workers, managers and business leaders and are selected for demonstrating excellence in living Aramark’s core values, delivering greatness at the moment of truth, innovating the everyday and demonstrating a high degree of involvement in the communities they serve. The program was inaugurated in 2015.
