Uniland is proposing to construct a 110,000 sq. ft. facility for lease to Sodexo.  Sodexo currently leases approximately 126,000 sq. ft. of space in four separate facilities in the Amherst International Park which leases expire in November, 2015.  In pursuit of a location where all offices could be merged into one facility, they have identified a site in Cheektowaga at 400 Airborne.  Sodexo's U.S. headquarters are located in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  They are a global provider facilities and food services to many industries including corporate, education, government and healthcare.

In 2013, Sodexo hired consultants Mohr Partners to investigate possible sites for this project and reached out the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise.  In addition to the ECIDA's incentive package a $750,000 grant from Empire State Development has been offered which is integral to securing Sedexo's long term presence and the retention of 511 jobs in Erie County.

In accordance with the ECIDA's Inter-Municipal Move Policy, the Supervisors of both the Town of Cheektowaga and Amherst have been notified of the company's intention to move.
