What you don’t know about Pampered Chef, a high-profile Aramark executive, and the other consultants in her $200,000-a-year consulting contract with the Texas-based fast food giant.
The two top consultants hired by Aramark last year, Karen O’Connor and Michael Peralta, were fired after they were caught cheating the company on salary and other perks, and Aramark was forced to pay them back.
Now the company has hired consultants who were hired by the company and are not directly affiliated with it.
In addition to O’Connell and Peraltas, Aramark hired the firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, which has worked on contracts for other fast food companies.
The firm has offices in New York, London, Paris, Brussels and London.
Aramark declined to comment for this story.
But the contracts are part of a pattern of fraud, waste and mismanagement at Aramarks corporate headquarters that the company says it’s taking seriously.
Aramarks said last year that it had fired or suspended the company’s chief financial officer, who oversaw its $2.3 billion acquisition of the company in January, as well as its vice president of financial management, who oversees the accounting firm that audited the company.
It said the same year that the auditor overseeing its $1.9 billion acquisition was fired.
It also fired or terminated its chief information officer, its chief marketing officer and its president of human resources.
In recent months, the company hired two consulting firms, a financial consulting firm, and an accounting firm.
Aramack, the biggest restaurant chain in the U.S., has long faced criticism for its poor financial management.
It has had a $2 billion bankruptcy filing in 2009 and a lawsuit filed in 2011 by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the federal agency that regulates the nation’s financial sector, that said the company was in serious financial trouble.
In the latest audit, Aramarks found the firm had inflated payroll by more than $900,000 last year.
The company also said it was in a “material breach” of the terms of its lease agreement with the city of Dallas for its headquarters.
A spokeswoman for Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said in an email that he was not aware of any audit or review of the deal.
The city is not paying the $1 billion, but has agreed to pay $750,000 a year in deferred rent for two years.
The deal allows the company to lease office space to the city and a parking lot.
Rawlings has said that he and city officials have spoken about Aramark’s need for the office space and the parking lot as a way to attract high-quality employees.
In a news release on Thursday, Aramack said that it was hiring two additional consultant firms to help it review its financial statements.
“These new hires will be key to improving the company performance and increasing our ability to provide our clients with the best financial services available to them,” the statement said.
Aramak said in a statement that it is “reviewing our current strategy, which is in line with our long-term business plan and our commitment to serving our customers, as we continue to review and improve our financial performance and operations.”
Aramark has a long history of bad financial performance, and many of its executives have had long histories of wrongdoing and poor performance.
In 2009, the Houston Chronicle reported that Aramark had paid more than a dozen people to cheat on their taxes.
The newspaper also reported that a former senior executive at Aramak paid himself more than three times the minimum wage for his job at the company, and paid his ex-wife $4.7 million in divorce fees.
Aramaz also had a poor reputation among some investors and analysts, and in the summer of 2012, Aramaz’s stock price dropped nearly 80 percent.
In December 2012, the Journal reported that the city was seeking to evict Aramark from its downtown Dallas headquarters because of its poor finances.
“Aramark’s financial problems have been chronic and growing for several years,” the city said in its complaint to the court.
“The company has failed to implement any meaningful change, including in terms of governance, management, or oversight.”
In August 2013, a judge ruled that the Houston City Council would have to approve the eviction.
That week, Aramos lawyers sent a letter to the council saying that it would be an “unnecessary and unreasonable” eviction and that the eviction was “not necessary” and that it “would not improve the City’s financial position.”
The council did not take any action on the eviction and instead approved the city’s request for a temporary restraining order against the company that would prevent the eviction from taking place.
But in April 2014, the council voted 4-3 to rescind the temporary restraining orders, saying that they were “irrelevant” to the eviction’s purpose.
