Good Uncle Acquisition
Aramark has acquired Good Uncle, an app-based on-demand fresh food delivery service for university and college students in the United States.
Launched in 2016, Good Uncle's culinary team is led by a Michelin-starred chef.
The company operates centralised production facilities and specially equipped vehicles for both on and off campus delivery, utilising a proprietary mobile app and drop-point model with designated pick up locations that allow aggregation of multiple deliveries.
Announcing the acquisition, Eric J. Foss, Aramark Chairman, President and CEO, said:
"We are pleased to welcome the Good Uncle team to the Aramark family.
"As consumer dining habits evolve, we’re continually looking for new ways to disrupt the marketplace with innovative services.
"Good Uncle strengthens our ability to offer quality and convenience through services that allow our college consumers to order restaurant-quality food and have it delivered when and where they want it on campus.”
Good Uncle is expected to retain its unique brand identity and operate as an independent concern.
