Goodbye GSI, Hello Eurest
New Company To Run Cafeterias

By Rich McManus

It's been a long time coming, but this summer, NIH'ers are going to start eating like the justices of the Supreme Court, the nabobs at IBM, Shell Oil and Mobil, and the high-rollers at Chevy Chase Bank. That's because Eurest Dining Services, a component of British multinational corporation Compass PLC, has won a 10-year contract to provide service at six campus cafeterias in Bldgs. 1, 10 (including the B1 facility, the atrium dining room and the lobby-area coffee bar now known as Café Verde), 31, 35 and 45. The cafeterias in Bldgs. 12B and 38A are unaffected by the new contract, and will continue to be operated by the Maryland Business Enterprise Program for the Blind.
