ARA TO SERVE FOOD AT SUPERDOME FOR 1994 SUGAR BOWL

 NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- From traditional stadium fare to classic Cajun specialties, ARA Services is preparing a feast for fans journeying here for the Sugar Bowl Saturday.
 About 72,000 fans will fill the Superdome for the Florida/West Virginia football matchup and ARA, which manages all food and beverage services at the Superdome, is getting ready.
 Mike McDonald, ARA manager at the Superdome, said ARA's cooks and vendors will serve 20,000 hot dogs, 7,000 nachos, 5,000 bags of popcorn, 2,000 hamburgers and nearly 7,500 gallons of soda during the Sugar Bowl.
 Those waiting to sample the regional menu can try Jambalaya, a rice, sausage, and chicken dish; or Gumbo, a local favorite featuring sausage, seafood, chicken and crab served over steamed rice.
 Other Cajun options include the alligator sausage and Boudin, another popular local sausage.
 McDonald said his ARA team also plans to serve at least 1,500 Po' Boys, a sandwich on a roll with cold cuts, lettuce, tomato and onions.
 "For ARA employees at one of the country's premier sports stadiums, the Sugar Bowl offers an exciting opportunity to demonstrate how quality food and beverage services can enhance the overall experience of attending a bowl game," said McDonald.
 For the Sugar Bowl, ARA's responsible drinking program -- ARA SERVES YOU RIGHT -- will be in effect. The program offers incentives to designated drivers and free taxi rides home to anyone surrendering his or her keys.
 The Superdome is home to the National Football League's New Orleans Saints and the Tulane University Green Wave, as well as the site of conventions, trade shows and other events. Since 1990, ARA has served the 1.5 million fans who visit the Superdome annually.
 "Like everyone else, we view the Sugar Bowl as something special and ARA, as always, will take what's special and make it extraordinary," said McDonald.
 ARA Services is the world's largest diversified services management company in the fields of food, leisure and support services; health and education services; uniform services; and magazine and book distribution.
 ARA is an employee-owned company with more than 131,000 employees worldwide and 1993 sales of nearly $5 billion.
