Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty, along with ARAMARK officials and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean have announced the creation of a new ARAMARK Business Services Center in Nashville. The center will create more than 1,000 new jobs over the next three years and represents an investment of approximately $20 million in Davidson County.
“We are grateful to ARAMARK for the significant number of job opportunities created by the new Business Services Center and the company’s continued investment in Tennessee,” Haslam said. “It is a strong vote of confidence when companies that are already doing business here make key decisions to expand and grow their operations in Tennessee.”
“ARAMARK’s decision to launch a new business services center in Middle Tennessee underscores Tennessee’s momentum in job recruitment that is unmatched in the Southeast,” Hagerty said. “I want to thank ARAMARK and its management for making this valuable investment in Tennessee.”
“This new Business Services Center will play a pivotal role in providing exceptional service to our clients,” CEO and President of ARAMARK Eric Foss said. “We are pleased to grow our already substantial presence in Tennessee and Metropolitan Nashville.”
“I welcome ARAMARK’s Business Services Center to Nashville and am proud that our city is increasingly being recognized as the premier location for global companies to centralize their operations,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said.
ARAMARK is in the process of securing its new facility in southeast Davidson County and plans for the Business Services Center to be operational by year-end. The new Business Services Center will consolidate and centralize certain financial and human resources services that are currently dispersed across the company’s North American operations. ARAMARK officials said the company evaluated several locations throughout the country where it has operations before deciding on Nashville.
