Effective Date:

Base Salary:
You will continue to be eligible to participate in Aramark’s Management Incentive Bonus (MIB) Plan for Fiscal Year 2019.  As further described in the Plan, if you are eligible to receive a Management Incentive Bonus, the amount of your Bonus will be determined on the basis of both the performance of Aramark and your performance measured against certain annual financial and non-financial goals.  The current guideline for your position is a target bonus of 85% of base salary.

Exhibit 10.21

Equity Incentives:
We will recommend to the Compensation and Human Resources Committee that you be awarded equity grants with a value of $500,000.

Aramark’s current practice sets the value of these awards as follows:
30% time based non-qualified stock options, 50% performance stock units and 20% time based restricted stock units. Please note that Aramark reserves the right to modify such practice at any time. The value of the time based non-qualified stock options will be based on their Black Scholes value as determined by Aramark. The exercise price of the stock options will be equal to the fair market value of Aramark stock on the date of grant, as such fair market value is defined under the 2013 Stock Incentive Plan.  The value of the restricted stock units and performance stock units will be based on the fair market value of the restricted stock units and the target number of performance stock units.

The stock options will generally vest over 4 years, 25% each year.  The performance stock units have a vesting period of 3 years, with the number of performance stock units that are eligible to vest determined based on achievement by Aramark of the applicable performance targets as provided in the performance stock unit award.  The restricted stock units will generally vest over 4 years, 25% each year.  The actual terms and conditions of the stock options, performance stock units (including the performance targets) and restricted stock units, in each case including the vesting terms, will be set forth in the award agreement and grant details for each such instrument that will be provided to you electronically following the grant. 

Your equity grants described above are subject to approval and generally will be granted around the time of a future quarterly Compensation and Human Resources Committee meeting where awards are considered. 


You will continue to be eligible to participate in the standard Aramark Benefits Program, as well as the Benefits/Perquisites Programs in place for ELC members, which are subject to change from time to time.

Auto Allowance:

You will be eligible to receive an auto allowance of $1,100 per month. This amount is subject to all applicable withholding taxes, is paid monthly and is not pro-rated.
This offer letter, along with the agreements referenced herein, sets forth the entire understanding of the parties with respect to all aspects of the offer. Any and all previous agreements or understandings between or among the parties regarding the subject matter hereof, whether written or oral, are superseded by this offer letter.
