The National Turkey Federation presented Aramark Corporation with its Seventh Annual “Turkey on the Menu” Award at the National Restaurant Association convention. The award recognizes the non-commercial foodservice operator for its variety of value-oriented, non-commercial turkey menu applications across many day parts, segments and cuisines.

Aramark uses 18 specified turkey products across all segments of the non-commercials business, including fresh and frozen, cooked and raw, totaling more than 30 million pounds of turkey per year.

“Turkey has a consistent presence both as limited time offers and regular menu items because its versatility and health profile allow us to provide our customers with options,” remarked Ed Jones, food production manager, who accepted the award on behalf of Aramark.


Port of Subs, winner of the casual/family style category, J. Alexander’s, winner of the fine dining category, and Jason’s Deli, winner of the fast food category, joined Aramark at the awards reception.
