Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company, will enter into a 20-year food service partnership with the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) in Greeley, CO, beginning July 1, 2022. As part of the partnership, Sodexo and UNC will work together to elevate and expand the university’s existing dining services, including refreshing retail dining options in the University Center and remodeling the Tobey-Kendel dining hall to include Starbucks, Crisol, Bowlful, and Empire Pizza. Additionally, in year two or three of the partnership, Sodexo will deploy delivery robots, delivering hot meals and cold drinks directly to dorm rooms or other areas of UNC’s campus as requested. 

We’re excited to collaborate to build a dining program that truly aligns with the UNC spirit, said Brett Ladd, CEO of Sodexo Campus. We know Sodexo’s contributions will enrich the lives of all members of the UNC campus community.

In addition to the retail refresh and dining hall remodel, the partnership also includes increasing concessions options for UNC athletic events by providing local food trucks, new menu items, and a new bar concept to enhance the fan experience. 

As someone with a background in hospitality management, I am constantly thinking about how to enhance the overall experience at UNC for our students, said UNC President Andy Feinstein. Our partnership with Sodexo allows us to do just that. I look forward to UNC and the university community benefiting from this partnership for many years to come.
