LSG Sky Chefs, the catering and hospitality expert brand of the LSG Group, has won a contract with United Parcel Service (UPS) to provide crew catering out of Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska (ANC). The new contract will see LSG Sky Chefs’ Anchorage Customer Service Center supply 10 meals per flight, or 32,000 meals each year.
The catering agreement, which will run for three years, solidifies the Anchorage operations’ expertise in cargo-crew catering. Presently, it accounts for a significant part of business at that Customer Service Center.
The new business with UPS commenced in the middle of June, just five weeks after the initial bid for the contract.
“The speed at which we started up with UPS is a testament to the hard work and persistence of the LSG Sky Chefs team,” said Kevin Lewellyn, LSG Sky Chefs’ Anchorage General Manager. “We’re proud to partner with UPS and provide exceptionally safe catering services to all of UPS’ flights out of Ted Stevens International Airport.”
“I am very excited for this partnership and have been impressed with Kevin and his team,” added Frank Austin, Crew Services & Catering Supervisor at UPS.
