Warren, Ohio (July 5, 2017) – AVI Foodsystems, Inc. announced today they have been awarded the culinary services contract at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Wofford, an independent liberal arts college, established in 1854, adds to AVI’s growing education division.
AVI began providing services effective July 1. The partnership will include the residential dining program, and a variety of retail venues including Chick-fil-A Express and Boar’s Head Deli.
“We’re excited to transform the culinary program, bringing an entirely new fresh approach. Our plan is focused on the highest quality wholesome ingredients, local sourcing and a customized approach for Wofford,” commented Chris Nelson, Executive Vice President for AVI.
“Wofford College is excited to partner with AVI Foodsystems as we strive to provide the best amenities for our students, faculty, staff and campus visitors,” said Barbie Jefferson, Chief Financial Officer at Wofford.
The announcement comes after AVI completed an acquisition in the first quarter of 2017 of Refreshment Services, Inc. (RSI), headquartered in Indian Trail, North Carolina. RSI has served customers throughout the Carolinas for more than 20 years and was led by industry veteran Bill Smith, who joins AVI as Regional Director.
Wofford College and the RSI acquisition significantly increase AVI’s expansion in the Southeast. Bill Smith, Regional Director for AVI in the Carolinas commented, “The integration of RSI and AVI has been tremendous. AVI prides themselves on values, integrity, experience and knowledge of the industry.”
AVI enthusiastically welcomes our new guests and team members and is honored to serve our new customers in the Carolinas.
