Aramark Begins Management of U.S. Postal Service’s National Center for Employee Development

Hotel & Conference Center Becomes Second USPS Facility to be Operated by Aramark

PHILADELPHIA--()--Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), a global leader in food, facilities and uniforms, recently expanded its portfolio of premier hotels and conference centers with the addition of the U.S. Postal Service’s National Center for Employee Development (NCED). With the busiest time of year for mail service approaching, Aramark commenced operations on October 1, 2018.

The Norman, Oklahoma facility is the second U.S. Postal Service-owned conference center and hotel operated by Aramark. Aramark has been successfully managing the USPS William F. Bolger Conference Center in Maryland since 2015.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with the U.S. Postal Service to include the National Center for Employee Development,” said Bruce W. Fears, President of Aramark’s Leisure division. “We look forward to welcoming postal service employees and working with the local community, while continuing to provide outstanding services and experiences to all visitors and guests.”

With the addition of NCED, the U.S. Postal Service becomes Aramark’s biggest conference center client. Both facilities are used to train associates—from entry-level team members to executives.

NCED is Aramark’s largest single lodging property, with just under 1,000 hotel rooms. As the property’s operator, Aramark will provide a wide array of services, including:

  • Front desk/concierge services
  • Housekeeping
  • Janitorial services
  • Shuttle transportation
  • Retail gift shop
