Wayne J. Goulding, Sr, developed the LunchStop concept while he was a senior manager for Gardner Merchant Food Services. From 1991 to 1994 Mr. Goulding and his management team developed the components necessary to legally register with the California Department of Corporation. In April of 1994 LunchStop was approved as a Franchise Business and sold its first franchise.

LunchStop is a California corporation incorporated on September 13, 1993 under the name Servo Food Systems, Inc. (“Servo”). Servo changed its name to LunchStop, Inc. on June 26, 1998. The principal office of LunchStop is located at 861 Pomegranate Ave., Patterson, CA 95363

LunchStop originally acquired a major portion of its assets upon its incorporation from Gardner Merchant Food Services, Inc. (the "Predecessor") and was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Predecessor. The Predecessor is a Connecticut corporation with its principal place of business at 9801 Washingtonian Blvd., Gaithersburg, MD 20878. The Predecessor is owned by a parent company, Gardner Merchant Holdings Inc. In 1995, the stock of Gardner Merchant Holdings Inc. was acquired by International Catering Corporation of Massachusetts ("ICCM”). The Predecessor subsequently changed its name from Gardner Merchant Food Services, Inc. to Sodexho Services, Inc. (the “Parent”) on February 28, 1996.

Until March 27, 1998, ICCM was owned by Sodexho Alliance, S.A., a food and management services company which was the ultimate parent of LunchStop. On March 27, 1998, Sodexho Alliance, S.A. consummated a transaction with Marriott International, Inc. (“Marriott”), a Delaware company, to combine their North American food and facilities management businesses. Marriott subsequently changed its name to Sodexho Marriott Services, Inc. Pursuant to this transaction, ICCM became a wholly owned subsidiary of Sodexho Marriott Operations, Inc., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sodexho Marriott Services, Inc.

On November 22, 1999 Sodexho Marriott Services, Inc. through its ICCM subsidiary sold 100% of the stock of LunchStop, Inc. to Mezzagiorno, Inc., a California corporation whose principal office is located at 861 Pomegranate Ave, Patterson, California 95363. At that time, Sodexho Marriott Services, Inc. also sold 100% of the stock of Servo Foods, Inc. to Mezzagiorno, Inc. through ICCM. Servo Foods, Inc. was formed by Sodexho Marriott Services, Inc. to effect a transfer of certain licenses for the operation of independent food service facilities (“Licensed Facilities”) to Mezzagiorno, Inc. Mezzagiorno, Inc. is now the parent of LunchStop, Inc. Mezzagiorno, Inc. neither owns or operates food facilities of its own.

Mezzagiorno is recognized as a Woman Owned Small Business and operates as a “C” Corporation.
