Wingate University

About This Project

Wingate University, one of the fastest-growing small universities nationally, contracted with The Pulse Group to assist in analyzing the costs/benefits of self-operated dining foodservice versus the existing contracted format. The analysis involved the development of national best practices case studies, financial benchmarking of Wingate operations in comparison to national metrics and the formulation of ten-year pro forma financial analyses illustrating the costs and benefits of the two options. Based on the results of our work, the University opted for contract services. We then assisted the University in developing an RFP, managed the RFP and contractor selection processes, played a lead role in negotiating contract terms, assisted in finalizing contract documentation and provided support for contract administration and oversight.
