Trinity Services Group (Trinity), a national provider of essential support
services for secure facilities, is expanding to new markets to provide
high-quality food service, while reducing taxpayer costs. Trinity is a leader
in providing high-quality food, commissary and support services to the jail
and corrections industry across 33 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin

Trinity Services Group awarded contracts with three detention centers

Headquartered in Oldsmar, Fla., Trinity was recently selected to support three
additional secure facilities in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida,
including Brunswick County Jail, Charleston County Detention Center and
Flagler County Jail, respectively. Trinity will oversee food and/or commissary
services under a new contract with each facility.

Under a five-year contract with Brunswick County Jail in Bolivia, N.C.,
Trinity will manage jail tray service for more than 300 inmates. Trinity will
also manage the county’s full-service Government Center cafeteria and Meals on
Wheels bulk and tray service. The cafeteria supports 1,000 county employees
daily at two dining rooms and three off-campus facilities. The company’s
operations will also help furnish food for group meetings, events and
gatherings across the campus. Additionally, Trinity will oversee an inmate
labor initiative to conserve labor costs and provide a more manageable food
service program for the jail.

Charleston County Detention Center in Charleston, S.C., recently agreed to a
five-year contract with Trinity Services Group to provide meal service to the
jail’s 1,300 inmates and 60 employees. The food service contract was awarded
to a competing firm in 2012, but due to unsatisfactory performance, county
management revisited the program and transferred it to Trinity’s leadership.
Inmates are now offered a hot breakfast in addition to other higher-quality
menu items.

Trinity has provided food service to more than 125 inmates at Flagler County
Jail in Bunnell, Fla., for the past three years. Under the new contact,
Trinity will exclusively operate the facility’s commissary services in
addition to continuing the current food service operations.

“Working with trusted partners like Trinity enables us to focus on other
responsibilities to maintain a secure facility and keep our community safe,”
said Rebecca Quintieri, director, Flagler County Jail. “We initially selected
Trinity as our food service provider because of its ability to be flexible to
our needs, and that ease of work played a large part in our decision to tap
into their commissary services.”

In 2012, Trinity joined with Canteen Correctional Services, a leading provider
of inmate support services, to form a standalone company. Both organizations
were previously independent divisions of Compass Group USA.

“The uniting of these companies under the Trinity name is the result of
efforts to bring our flexible and solutions-oriented approach to the industry
and address the unmet needs in the marketplace,” said Jim Long, CEO, Trinity
Services Group. “Under this unified structure, we bring a renewed commitment
to enhancing our programs and systems for the more than 400 corrections
facilities we currently serve, while expanding to additional regions.”
