GAITHERSBURG, Md., June 25, 2019 — Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company committed to improving Quality of Life, announced it has been selected by the United States Department of Transportation (US DoT) for a five-year base contract with two additional five-year options, to provide food services and catering operations for both the main cafeteria and supplemental dining room at the US DoT headquarters building in Washington, D.C. The contract is valued at approximatively $30 million in revenues over the life of the contracts.  

“Sodexo is proud to extend its long-term relationship with the U.S. Department of Transportation.
