Pepsi exclusivity contract expands across all campuses at Pacific

10-Year Contract Awarded
Shelby SlaugenhauptOct 1, 2015

Procurement Services is proud to announce a new 10-year beverage pouring rights exclusivity contract awarded to Pepsi Beverages Company effective September 1, 2015. The solicitation for exclusivity was extended to all campuses given the value of promoting a multi-campus contract with financial incentive that contributes to student success.

This award comes after fifteen years of serving both Pepsi and Coca-Cola products at various Pacific locations. Solicitations for this contract were opened to both Pepsi Beverages Company and Coca-Cola Bottling Company. The award was determined after a comprehensive bidding process conducted by a committee comprised of representatives from Procurement Services, OneCard, Athletics, Student Life, ASUOP, Bon Appetit, Student Leadership and representatives from the San Francisco and Sacramento campuses. Considerations for award to Pepsi were largely influenced by the revenue generated over the term of the contract, opportunities presented by the partnership and overall proposal presented.

As the current provider on the Stockton campus there are minimal changes resulting from this partnership. Dining Services, convenience stores and concessions will continue to promote Pepsi products. Vending machine assessments are being conducted to determine needs across campus from the onset of the new term.

At the Sacramento campus the transition in Dining Services from Coca-Cola to Pepsi will be completed prior to hosting a kick-off event on October 8, 2015 from 11:00-1:00 p.m. in partnership with Pepsi. Vending machines will be converted over to Pepsi through the first week of October.

Vending machine placement will be continue to be installed throughout the San Francisco campus. In support of the expanded partnership the student store on that campus is also in the process of converting product line.
