Who are we at Academy of Art Dining Services?
Sodexo’s partnership with AAU began in 2004 with just a single 60 seat residing dining café. Today, Academy of Art Dining Services employs over 120 people that serve over 1,100 students every day through three resident dining cafes and three retail cafes. Our catering department, Sodexo Catering Services SF, provides catering and event services for over 250 special events throughout the year including AAU’s Spring Show and Fashion Show as well as for third party clients throughout the Bay Area. Total revenues for fiscal year 2019 were $5 million and for fiscal year 2022 were $2.5 million.
iHouse Café at 860 Sutter and 620 Café at 620 Sutter feature made to order dishes that can easily be pre-ordered online or upon arrival via touch screens located in the dining rooms. Both cafes offer dine-in and carry out. Café Da Vinci at 2550 Van Ness is our newest café. We opened a pop up there this fall and renovations for the fully equipped restaurant space are on schedule to be completed by January 2023.
Our retail locations on campus, Café Dior at 625 Polk and 180 Café at 180 New Montgomery, offer Starbucks coffee, refreshments and Sodexo’s Simply to Go grab go options for those students on the move. Art Café, located within the Sutter Housing corridor, offers a wide variety of grocery and convenience products, made to order sandwiches and snacks, and a full line of Starbucks beverages.
