The Top 50’s eight largest college market operators

Here are the eight Top 50 contract management firms generating at least $100 million in business in the college dining market in 2021.

In this adjunct listing to the full 2022 Top 50, we break out the eight entries that posted at least $100 million in the college dining market based on figures from the companies or FM estimates where that was not fully available. For instance, because the three largest firms—Compass Group, Sodexo and Aramark—all combine their college and K-12 business under the heading of Education in their public reporting, it is difficult to break out how much of the business is done in each market individually, so the numbers listed here for the three are FM estimates that generally split the difference, assuming about half of the total Education business for each is being done in higher education and half in K-12.

In any case, it is clear that Compass, Sodexo and Aramark are by far the largest contract players in the college market, with five other FM Top 50 firms doing at least $100 million in this area.
