Deli-bakery contract awarded for 44 commissaries

FORT LEE, Va. (AFNS) -- A new contractor will start taking over deli-bakery operations next month at 44 Midwest commissaries that were impacted when a contractor-provided service ceased at the end of February, due to performance issues.

"I'm pleased to announce that Military Deli and Bakery Services Inc. (MDBS), has been awarded the contract and this will allow us to transition these stores back to contractor-operated deli-bakeries," said Joseph Jeu, the Defense Commissary Agency director and CEO.

Since the end of February, the commissary agency has been providing limited deli-bakery services at all the commissaries with the exception of Fort Sill, Oklahoma. This was primarily done by hiring many of the former contractor's employees on temporary appointments as government employees.

Starting June 1, MDBS will begin taking over the deli-bakery operations in a phased roll out that includes the restoration of fresh sushi bars at stores that offer this service. The deli-bakery roll out is expected to be complete by the end of May. The sushi bar roll out is expected to be complete by mid-July.
