More information on Aramark:
Aramark Corporation, known commonly as Aramark, is an American food, facilities, and clothing provider supplying businesses, educational institutions, sports facilities, and health care institutions. It is headquartered at the Aramark Tower in Center City Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Aramark’s revenues reached $12.3 billion USD in 2009 and was listed as the 189th largest employer on the FORTUNE 500.

History
Aramark was founded in 1936 by Davre Davidson, who began providing vending services to plant employees in the aviation industry in Southern California. In 1959, Davidson partnered with William Fishman to establish ARA (Automatic Retailers of America), which became publicly traded a year later in 1960. In 1968, Aramark provided services at the Mexico City Olympic Games, the first of 14 games they have serviced, including Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008. In 1969, ARA officially becomes ARA Services, to reflect its growing range of businesses. In 1983, Joseph Neubauer was elected CEO of ARA Services and a year later, in 1984, Neubauer led a group of executives to fend off a hostile takeover bid by coordinating a management buyout. ARA Services changes its name to ARAMARK in 1994. In 2004, Aramark acquired a 90% stake in the Ireland catering company Campbell Catering. In 2001, Aramark returns to the New York Stock Exchange as a public company under the RMK ticker. In 2006, a group of investors led by Neubauer proposed the acquisition of all outstanding shares of the Aramark Corporation, which was approved by shareholders. The merger was completed in 2007.

Global Operations
Aramark provides food and facility services to thousands of clients in 22 countries, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Chile, Ireland and Spain. Those services include:

Business and Industry: Business dining services include management of on-site restaurants, catering, convenience stores, and executive dining rooms. Other services include coffee, vending and facility management.

Sports and Entertainment: At sports, entertainment, and recreational facilities, including national parks, Aramark provides concessions, banquet and catering services, retail, merchandise and novelty sales, recreational and lodging services and facilities management.

Higher Education and K-12: Services to colleges, universities, school systems and districts and private schools include dining, catering, food service management, convenience-oriented retail operations, facilities maintenance, custodial, grounds, energy, construction management, capital project management and building commissioning.

Healthcare: Non-clinical support services at healthcare and senior living facilities include patient food and nutrition services, retail food services, clinical equipment maintenance, environmental services, laundry and linen distribution, plant operations, energy management, strategic/technical services, supply chain management and central transportation.

Uniforms: Aramark's uniform and career apparel segment provides uniforms, career and image apparel, safety equipment, work clothes and accessories in industries such as manufacturing, transportation, construction, restaurants and hotels, public safety, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. In 2006, Aramark acquired SeamlessWeb, an Internet-based service that allows users to order food from local restaurants. Aramark owns half interest in AIM Services, a leading outsourcing food provider in Japan.

Chilean miners rescue
Aramark was hired to help feed the 33 miners trapped in the 2010 Copiapó mining accident after a local catering company was unable to meet government requirements. The Chilean Ministry of Health contracted Aramark, which specializes in remote site food preparation and delivery. They arrived in Copiapó on Sept. 6 and developed a method of delivering vacuum packed meals, at the correct temperature, meeting specialized dietary requirements until the miners were extracted about 45 days later. All told, the company provided five meals each day, about 6,000 meals total. - Wikipedia




Old Stock Yard Policies and FAQs

Shipping and Handling Charges:
$2.99 for one certificate to the U.S.
$10.99 for one certificate to the rest of the world

Additional, combined certificate purchases ship for free!

Shipping Method and Timing:
Certificates are carefully packaged in poly bags and rigid envelopes to protect them during shipment. Items are sent via U.S.P.S. – usually first class, but occasionally priority or parcel post. Most items will be mailed within 48 hours of payment.  

Payment Method:
In accordance with eBay policy, my listings are setup to accept Paypal payments. Sellers are allowed to accept other forms of payment only if the buyer requests another payment method – so if you prefer to pay using a method other than Paypal, please let me know.

Return Policy:
Items can be returned for any reason within 15 days of purchase. A full refund will be issued upon receipt of the return if the item is the same condition it was in upon delivery.

FAQs:
Are you your certificates authentic or copies?
Everything I sell is original and authentic. I do not sell copies or reproductions.

Is the certificate pictured the exact one I will receive?
Usually, yes. Occasionally, I do list certificates of the same type without rescanning. In this case, the certificate you receive will be virtually identical (same color, size, vignette, etc.) to the one pictured. Again, if you ever receive anything from me you are not 100% pleased with, you can return it for a full refund.

What is the best way to store, protect, and display my certificate collection?
The best thing, by far, that I have come across for storing certificates are profolios and sleeves made by Itoya. You can purchase them in my eBay store. I have several sizes available.

Do the certificates you sell have financial value?
No, these certificates are sold as collectibles only; although they are authentic, they no longer hold financial value.
