ARAMARK's Mobile Fire Not As Costly As Initially Reported

MOBILE, Ala. — The July 10 fire at ARAMARK Uniform Services' Mobile, Ala., plant caused $200,000 in damage, primarily to garments and smaller pieces of equipment, an ARAMARK spokeswoman says, but the facility was operational and able to service all of its customers the next day.
The building used for sorting and storage was rented space and will be rebuilt. ARAMARK is moving to a temporary building a mile away until it's completed.
All of the garments lost in the fire have been replaced, the spokeswoman says. The Mobile plant has received support from other ARAMARK plants in Alabama, Georgia, California and Florida.
