Sodexo partners with Tapingo

Sodexo to bring mobile ordering to 850+ campuses; Tapingo to reach 25% of universities

Sodexo, food service provider for college campuses, and mobile commerce application for campus dining, Tapingo, have partnered to bring mobile ordering to Sodexo campus clients across North America.

Together with Tapingo’s native apps, students, faculty, staff and community members at Sodexo-served campuses will be able to order food through their campus dining program and choose from either pick-up or delivery options. The partnership is intended to both enhance the student experience by providing more convenient dining options, as well as enable Sodexo’s campus dining operations to function more efficiently.

“We work with institutions that prioritize quality of life for students, faculty, and staff, and Tapingo is the only solution that can meet Sodexo’s goals of positively transforming campus dining,” says Bill Lacey, senior vice president at Sodexo. “This partnership provides our campuses with an exciting, innovative service that not only increases satisfaction, but also empowers community members to enjoy healthy, high-quality meals and snacks that suit their on-the-go lifestyles.”

Serving as the campus dining provider to more than 850 colleges and universities across the United States and Canada, Sodexo will roll out the Tapingo service to campuses in both countries. During the fall 2016 semester, Tapingo will include top Sodexo campuses in its deployment schedule, which is expected to see 100 campuses join the Tapingo network. The move will effectively extend Tapingo’s reach to 25% of major four-year U.S. universities.

“We’re thrilled to partner with a company of Sodexo’s caliber and reputation,” says Jeff Hardy, Tapingo’s Chief Business Officer. “We’ve made it our mission to make buying better on every college in America. Students and faculty are more strapped for time than ever, and we want to give them that time back. We look forward to bringing our technology and insights to Sodexo campuses across the country.”

Since its founding in 2012, Tapingo has leveraged mobile technology to improve the buying experience and solve a key problem for students: lack of time. Tapingo now estimates that it processes tens of thousands of transactions daily.
