"We innovate continually to enhance consumers' food experiences with
unique and on-trend culinary solutions that are also local and
sustainable," said Victor Crawford, a Chief Operating Officer for
Aramark. "Our partnership with Oath will further enable us to provide a
high quality, convenient, healthy and personalized menu option, not to
mention a great-tasting pizza with a purpose."

Aramark is one of the largest food service providers in the country and
serves clients in multiple sectors, including education (colleges and
universities; K-12 schools and districts), healthcare (hospitals and
healthcare facilities), sports and entertainment (stadiums, arenas and
amphitheaters; destinations and cultural attractions), and business and
government (workplaces and manufacturing facilities; convention centers
and conference centers).

Oath Pizza currently operates locations in the Boston and Washington, DC
areas, and recently opened a restaurant in New York City. The alliance
with Aramark will enable Oath Pizza to expand more quickly with new
locations opening before the end of 2018 and beyond to fulfill its
mission offering delicious, guilt-free pizzas in unexpected places to
more people across the country. Oath Pizza is scheduled to open sites
this month on college campuses served by Aramark. Locations in
businesses and hospital cafés have already opened as a result of the
partnership.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Aramark to scale up and reach new
audiences," says Oath Pizza CEO Patrik Hellstrand. "This partnership
will give Oath Pizza access to unique and exclusive dining options to
bring our certified humane and ethically-sourced pizzas to a greater
number of people who love delicious food and want to feel good about
their eating decisions."

About Oath Pizza

Oath Pizza was founded in 2015 as a quaint seaside pizza shop in
Nantucket, MA. The Oath brand was born out of a life-long quest to
develop a different kind of pizza crust; the result is Oath's trade
secret thin crust, which features hand-stretched dough that is grilled
and seared in avocado oil for a crispy finish. As the only existing Certified
Humane
pizza restaurant in the country, all of Oath's pizzas are
made without hormones, artificial preservatives or antibiotics. The
company boasts an experienced culinary team led by culinary consultant,
food stylist and cookbook author Suzanne
Lenzer
, along with Chef Mike Hazen, who serves as Oath Pizza's Head
of Culinary and has more than 20 years of experience working for some of
the titans of the hospitality industry — earning accolades for One-Off
Hospitality and Steven Starr, among others. Popular signature menu items
include the Bella (mozzarella, roasted cherry tomatoes, roasted
garlic, ricotta, balsamic drizzle, Grana Pandano cheese, and fresh
basil), and the Spicy Mother Clucker (mozzarella, pickled red
onions, spiced chicken, sriracha drizzle, spicy aioli and scallions).
Beyond their guilt-free pizzas, Oath supports its employees, guests and
the local neighborhoods they serve by donating a portion of proceeds
from all of its restaurants indefinitely to hyper local causes and
organizations.
