This article relates the success of the environmentally friendly Grab and Go bags launched at all Aramark B&I accounts in the U.S. According to Foodservice Director Patrick Mearn, they sent mass e-mail to all Aramark employees to promote the bags, along with displaying posters throughout the building. They also offered a combo where a customer who bought a bag and one of their meal specials received a free beverage. The bags cost only 99 cents and are made from recycled materials. He says good communication helped by having the signage and e-mails.
