Sodexo to acquire convenience solutions operator, A.H. Management, expanding footprint in North America

July 28, 2023
With A.H. Management, Sodexo will broaden its multi-channel offerings through InReach including micro markets, vending, office coffee, pantry, water, catering, fresh food and on-site food service in the Midwest.

Sodexo announced plans to accelerate its food transformation strategy and expand its convenience offering by reinforcing its territorial footprint in North America. 

With the acquisition of A.H. Management, independent convenience solutions, Sodexo will extend InReach’s food offerings in the fast-growing North American convenience market. A.H. Management, a premier convenience solutions operator in the Chicago region and southeast Wisconsin, is one of the largest operators in the Midwest. The closing of the acquisition is expected in the coming months.

With A.H. Management, Sodexo will complement and broaden its multi-channel offerings through InReach including micro markets, vending, office coffee, pantry, water, catering, fresh food and on-site food service in the Midwest, northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, as well as the Chicago and Milwaukee metropolitan areas. 

A.H. Management is a family-owned business that began in 1939 serving clients in all business segments. Through the years, the business has grown to be one of the largest independent operators in the U.S. and has a strong reputation for customer service excellence.

“The acquisition of A.H. Management is the next step in enhancing Sodexo’s multimarket convenience solution, InReach, in North America. It will help us complement our current solutions and further address ever-evolving clients’ and consumers’ expectations to deliver on our ambition to become the leader in sustainable food and valued experiences,” Sarosh Mistry, Sodexo’s North America CEO, said in the announcement.

Mark and Craig Hesch, president and CEO of A.H. Management, added in the announcement: “We are very excited about joining Sodexo's InReach. We share the same values, culture and objectives whether for our employees, our clients with attention to consumer benefit in order to offer a high value-added break experience. We look forward to playing a vital role in InReach's success.”

A.H. Management will follow the acquisition of Frontline Food Services in 2022, as well as the food tech startup Foodee and the commissary kitchen model Nourish Inc. in 2021.
