Leading Management Companies Ranked by Revenue

Top 50 2014The 2015 Top 50 marks the 18th year of this annual roundup of the top players in foodservice contract management, including key business metrics and a capsule summary of major recent initiatives for each firm.

FM’s Top 50 is limited to firms with significant manual foodservice revenue (though they may also offer other services such as vending, facility management, catering, etc.).

Take a look at the companies that cracked this year's Top 10

This year's top five growers

As always, the listing should not be interpreted as a strict “ranking” since raw revenue figures do not necessarily reflect relative market position in a particular segment or operating region. A couple of quick takeaways: A number of companies operating in the K-12 schools segment (The Nutrition Group, Metz, Southwest Foodservice Excellence, Revolution Foods, etc.) posted double-digit growth, perhaps reflecting increased momentum for professional management of school meal programs in the face of increasingly complex federal mandates. Also, after collectively growing over $2 billion in 2013, the “Big Three” have fallen back to the $1 to $1.1 billion range in the past two years, due primarily to lack of top-line growth at Sodexo.

Arriving at the Numbers

The number that determines each company’s place in the Top 50 is its domestic top-line revenues for fiscal or calendar year 2014 (in millions of dollars). Where numbers are not available, FM estimates are based on known accounts and other information (indicated by an “e”).
