NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Food and uniform services company ARAMARK will build a new business services center in Nashville, creating more than 1,000 new jobs over the next three years.

The $20 million investment was announced Wednesday by Gov. Bill Haslam, Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty and Metro Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.

The Philadelphia-based company will consolidate and centralize some financial and human resources services that are currently dispersed across the company's North American operations. 

ARAMARK is securing property in southeastern Davidson County for the new facility, which it expects to be operational by the end of this year.

"Our goal is to start hiring as soon as possible and bringing employees onboard to train as we finalize our site preparations," said Brian Gabbard, ARAMARK Vice President, Global Business Services.

ARAMARK officials said the company evaluated several locations throughout the country where it has operations before deciding on Nashville.

ARAMARK describes itself as a global leader in delivering food, facility and uniform services for businesses, universities, hospitals, stadiums and various other institutions. The company has 250,000 employees globally, including more than 3,200 in Tennessee.

The company has several facilities throughout the state and provides food, facility and uniform services to more than 9,000 Tennessee clients including, University of Tennessee, Meharray Medical College, American General Insurance and Lifeway Christian Resources.
