Sodexo works with school administrators, teachers, principals and parents to ensure we do everything possible to improve the learning environment for your students.

Creating the learning environment.

Student success depends upon so many conditions. When children are well fed, safe, and comfortable, they are more likely to succeed. When teachers, staff, and administrators know that their students have proper nutrition, clean facilities, and friendly support, they are free to focus on delivering the best education possible. Sodexo works directly with school administrators and parent/teacher organizations to define how we can help create the best learning environment for your students and staff.

Student nutrition and facilities services are just the beginning when Sodexo partners with your school district. Serving our public school districts across the country means understanding the unique cultures and values of our diverse nation. Training, health and wellness events, classroom lessons, community activities, education-industry sponsorship - there are so many facets of involvement when Sodexo joins your team. From New England to the Great Northwest, our combined experiences give Sodexo the ability to effectively serve the needs of local communities, administrators, principals, teachers, parents and students.

Founded in 1994 by Daniel Halpern, Brooke Jackson Edmond, and her father, the late former Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson, Jr., Jackmont Hospitality is a full service foodservice company.

The foundation for Jackmont Hospitality was established in the 1930’s with a small family resort established by Reverend Maynard Jackson, Sr. and his wife, Dr. Irene Dobbs Jackson. Nestled in the North Georgia Mountains, this small resort was used to host family and associates. Affectionately nicknamed “Jackmont”, Jackson’s mountain resort came to be known as a refuge for warm, attentive hospitality.

Since beginning operations with a single retail location in what is now Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Jackmont Hospitality has grown dramatically. Today, we own multiple casual dining franchises while also managing the dining programs for our clients in corporations and educational institutions. Our ability to exceed client expectations while also managing to the bottom line emphasizes our commitment to building strong relationships and delivering value to our clients.

The same spirit that went into the service at the Jackson family resort is evident at Jackmont Hospitality today where we have earned a reputation as a company with a commitment to excellence and attention to detail.
