Sodexo Inc. to lay off 190 workers in Baltimore

Sodexo Inc. plans to lay off 190 workers in May at its operations at Loyola University Maryland, the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said Thursday. The Gaithersburg-based company told regulators that the school at 4501 N. Charles St., Baltimore, will no longer be using Sodexo's food services, causing the company to close its facility there and lay off workers on May 31.

"Sodexo has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Loyola University Maryland and unfortunately they've decided to go in a different direction with their campus dining program," said spokesman Enrico Dinges in an email.

Often, laid-off food service employees are hired by a new vendor. Dinges declined to comment about hirings and deferred such questions to the university and new vendor.
