FM Top 50 2013

Leading Management Companies  Ranked by Revenue


If you’ve noticed anything different about this year’s Top 50, don’t worry. It is different. For one thing, we’ve moved it to March from September to reflect more timely fiscal year-end figures. One thing that hasn’t changed is the comprehensive information about the largest players in onsite contract foodservice.

(Among other changes, online viewers can now view an  interactive data table that lets you sort and resort our listings). 

As always, the Top 50 is limited to firms with significant manual foodservice volume (though they may also offer other services such as vending, facility management, catering, etc.). Finally, our usual caveat: the listing should not be taken as a strict “ranking” since raw revenue does not necessarily reflect relative market position in a particular segment or operating region. Also, because contract terms (e.g., fee vs. P&L) sometimes obscure the scope of the actual volume a company manages, simple revenue numbers can be misleading.

Arriving at the numbers

The number that determines each company’s place in the Top 50 is its domestic top-line revenues for fiscal or calendar year 2012 (in millions of dollars). Where numbers are not available, FM estimates are based on known accounts and other information (indicated by an “e”).
