The announcement comes as the NSHA’s contract with the Compass Group Canada, the company operating the food service locations in the zone, comes to an end.

Because the Compass Group holds the contract for Tim Hortons and Pizza Pizza, it means NSHA will not be able to operate the outlets.

“Thanks to Tim Hortons and Pizza Pizza, under the leadership of Compass, for their service over the past 11 years,” the memo read.
