The financial effects of the pandemic continue to mount for a company that provides food services in the Williamsburg area.
Sodexo laid off 80 employees in Williamsburg at the end of August.
“Our top priority is immovably the health and safety of our employees, clients, customers, and the communities we serve,” a Sodexo spokesperson said in a statement. “As we continue to navigate the uncertainties created by COVID-19, like everyone else, we’ve had to make some very difficult decisions. And the most difficult of these has been workforce reductions.”
The company runs food services at The College of William & Mary as one of its contracts, but services at the college are were not affected by the company’s decision, according to university spokeswoman Suzanne Clavet.
