Levy Restaurants Replaces Sodexo as OSU Concessions Provider
Ohio State today named Levy Restaurants as the exclusive food and drink provider at its athletic venues.
The Chicago-based company replaces Sodexo. Sodexo had come under fire from student groups in recent years for allegedly creating a hostile work environment. In 2010, Sodexo workers staged a protest at an Ohio State football game for what they called “unfair labor practices”.
The University’s new seven year contract with Levy goes into effect July First. It increases the University’s commission on sales from 32 to 43 percent.
Levy will provide concessions at Ohio Stadium, the Schottenstein Center and all other OSU sports venues.
