Covad Communications Group, Inc. is now providing technology solutions for the American division of Compass Group, the world’s largest contract foodservice management company.
Compass Group has over 8,000 accounts nationwide and Covad is supplying high-quality broadband service to more than 500 locations. We approached Covad in July 2005 to fulfill our technology needs. With so many accounts spread across the country, we needed a solution to increase our broadband capabilities,” said Roland Falcon, vice president, IT infrastructure and operations with Compass Group, The Americas.
“Covad had the technology solutions we were looking for, in terms of increasing the
speed in which our accounts could connect and report back to our corporate headquarters with
time-sensitive operational and financial information.”
Eurest, Wolfgang Puck Catering, Bon Appétit Management Company, and Food Works are just a
few of Compass Group’s operating companies. National brands include Au Bon Pain, Mamma
Leone’s, Coyote Jack’s, Chick-fil-A and Wolfgang Puck.
“Compass Group has provided us with an exciting opportunity to enable the foodservice industry
on a large scale,” said Dave McMorrow, executive vice president of sales Covad. “Our national
coverage, product portfolio and quality of service allow Compass Group to be successful in their
commitments to their customers.”
Compass Group is currently exploring opportunities with Covad’s VoIP and wireless services.
