Thompson Hospitality

RSS

Ranking #8

Thompson is one of the country's largest minority-owned businesses. It operates both franchised commercial restaurants and onsite dining sites. Earlier this year it was named Black Enterprise magazine's 2010 Industrial/Service Company of the Year for its impressive performance in the face of a tough economy.

Thompson operates campus dining at almost two dozen higher education accounts, many of them historically black colleges and community colleges, as well dining as catering at high-profile corporate clients like Procter & Gamble and Verizon and at Walter Reed Army Hospital. It also partners with various business units of Compass Group on corporate dining and K-12 school contracts, including Chicago City Schools, where the company has recently ramped up efforts to secure more locally grown fruits and vegetables for the district dining program.
