When it comes to the Super Bowl, you’re probably pretty focused on the game itself, the food at your viewing party, or the halftime show. (Can we just say that Lady Gaga killed it this year?)

But what’s it like to actually work the Super Bowl? If you’re an employee at Aramark, there’s a good chance you could be one of dozens of team members working the big game and making sure the stadium is ready to accommodate thousands of spectators and the millions of people watching all over the country. Aramark personally handled the merchandise, food, and beverage services for the 2017 Super Bowl and the week leading up to it. This included items for the stadium as well as an entire convention center hosting the NFL Experience, a week-long interactive theme park offering games, youth football clinics, and free autograph sessions from NFL players!

Another fun fact: Aramark’s responsibility over the little details isn’t just about food and drinks; the company also had to keep track of 3,200 rolls of toilet paper and 580 gallons of hand soap on game day.

Want to get a feel for what it’s like to be at the Super Bowl on game day? Four recent grads – Michael Bamford (Bloomsburg University), Alicia Thompson (University of Kentucky), Lindsey Havican (Florida State University), and Katie Beattie (St. Joseph’s University) – from Aramark take you behind-the-scenes of what it was like preparing for the event.

And if you want to be like them next year, here’s a hint: Aramark is hiring for their Direct Sales & Distribution Step Up to Leadership Program, Direct Sales & Distribution Accelerate to Leadership Program and their Facilities Management Accelerate to Leadership Program on WayUp now!
