NASHVILLE (AP) - Food and uniform services company ARAMARK is locating a business services center in Nashville, bringing more than 1,000 jobs over the next three years.

The $20 million investment was announced Wednesday by Gov. Bill Haslam, Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty and Metro Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.

The Philadelphia-based company will consolidate and centralize some financial and human resources services that are currently dispersed across the company's North American operations. ARAMARK is securing property in southeastern Davidson County for the new facility, which it expects to be operational by the end of this year.

ARAMARK describes itself as a global leader in delivering food, facility and uniform services for businesses, universities, hospitals, stadiums and various other institutions. The company has 250,000 employees globally, including more than 3,200 in Tennessee.
