Starr Restaurants and Aramark team up for a culinary collaboration.
We here at dosage MAGAZINE are almost certain you’ve devoured food from Aramark vendors or Stephen Starr restaurants at a big sporting event or dinner with friends. So, the recent opportunity to see Aramark’s test kitchen in action, an announcement of their partnership with Starr Restaurants that was made public in December, was a rare opportunity to experience the fusion of these local culinary giants.
Starr Restaurant Organization (Starr Restaurants) and Aramark have partnered to deliver world-class food experiences to clients while enabling both companies’ growth.
“From the Aramark perspective, we’re certainly very excited about this partnership,” said Aramark Chief Operating Officer for U.S. Food and Facilities, Marc Bruno. “Being based in Philadelphia, we have had a front-row seat as Stephen Starr, one of the culinary pioneers of our city’s food scene, elevated the dining experience and helped make Philadelphia one of the best food cities in the country. Through this strategic collaboration, we look forward to furthering Aramark’s culinary authority by infusing our kitchens and concepts with the creativity and innovation that Starr Restaurants is famous for.”
“This collaboration is a unique opportunity for both Starr Restaurants and Aramark,” said founder and CEO, Stephen Starr, recalling his early career as an entertainment promoter. Today, Starr is a James Beard Award-winning restaurateur helming one of the largest multi-concept and independent restaurant groups in the United States.
The two businessmen developed their friendship over a common food treat, according to Starr.
“That’s how it all started talking about pizza and [Bruno] knows a lot about it, and I saw that there’s a synergy between these companies,” said Starr, adding: “I look forward to developing innovative and cool concepts for many of Aramark’s clients and customers around the country, as well as a robust and beneficial knowledge exchange among our talented leaders.”
