I think the commissary was at the airport or something, whatever it was it stopped when they changed vendors.

I thought it was no worse than Aramark but had other options.
LSG has quite the non-airline food service business to keep its airport commissaries busy. I think they already provide food to DB...
Delaware North would be my best bet here, but they would need to open up their own operations in some regions or subcontract it.

Have to agree that smaller vendors are often better at the job and for state services there is no need to be part of the national amtrak food service. Unlike being ticketed and marketed as an amtrakkservice, there is no benefit to being amtrak food service.
