Education 1

Your students’ quality of life is at the heart of every service we offer. We carefully consider every detail of their academic journey, from their nutritional needs right down to the quality of the air they breathe. Our comprehensive approach ensures an outstanding experience for students and tangible benefits for your school.

Fostering a community where students, teachers and administrators can interact in well-maintained classrooms and comfortable dining spaces facilitates active learning and social interaction. Partnering with school districts, we champion academic achievement by providing food services and facilities management to help schools operate more effectively and efficiently, giving time back to principals and teachers to educate young minds.

“By us focusing on what we’re good at -- not having to worry about food service, custodial, maintenance, yards -- we’ve been able to over the last five years dominate the top spot in academics in southwest Missouri.  We’re fortunate that that’s happening with our partnership with Sodexo. I’m here to tell you it has made a difference.”

- Stephen Kleinsmith, Superintendent, Nixa Schools
