          Section 1.04  Directors and Officers.  The directors of AWC at the

          Section 1.05  Effect on Capital Stock.  At the Effective Time, by
                        -----------------------
virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the holder thereof:

          (a)  Each share of Class A common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of
     ARAMARK issued and outstanding immediately before the Effective Time (other
     than shares of ARAMARK Class A common stock held by Dissenting Stockholders
     (as defined in Section 1.05(g)) will convert into twenty shares of AWC
     Class A-1 common stock, par value $0.01 per share, and such shares of AWC
     Class A-1 common stock will be reflected on the stock ledger of AWC as
     issued and outstanding, fully paid and nonassessable, uncertificated
     shares.  To the fullest extent authorized by law, all instructions, orders
     and notices recorded on the ARAMARK stock ledger in respect of such shares
     of ARAMARK Class A common stock will be recorded on the AWC stock ledger in
     respect of such shares of AWC Class A-1 common stock; in particular, to the
     fullest extent authorized by law, instructions in respect of uncertificated
     shares of ARAMARK Class A common stock will become instructions in respect
     of uncertificated shares of AWC Class A-1 common stock, and notices in
     respect of such shares of ARAMARK Class A common stock under Section 3.02
     of the Stockholders' Agreement (as defined herein) will become instructions
     in respect of uncertificated shares of AWC Class A-1 common stock, such
     that perfected security interests made in accordance with Section 3.02 of
     the Stockholders' Agreement shall be unaffected by the Merger.

          (b) Each share of Class B common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of
     ARAMARK issued and outstanding immediately before the Effective Time will

     Class A-1 common stock, par

                                      2

     and non-assessable Class A-2 common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of
     AWC, and (iii) shares of validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable
     Class A-3 common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of AWC, and such shares
     of AWC Class A-1 common stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3
     common stock will be reflected on the stock ledger of AWC as uncertificated
     shares; provided that if, with respect to any stockholder, such division
     results in an unequal allocation of whole shares of AWC Class A-1 common
     stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common stock, then such
     one or two whole shares as must be unequally allocated among shares of AWC
     Class A-1 common stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common
     stock shall be so allocated by lot. To the fullest extent authorized by
     law, all instructions, orders and notices recorded on the ARAMARK stock
     ledger in respect of such shares of ARAMARK Class B common stock will be
     recorded on the AWC stock ledger in respect of such shares of AWC Class A-1
     common stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common stock; in
     particular, to the fullest extent authorized by law, instructions in

     common stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common stock,
     and notices in respect of such shares of ARAMARK Class B common stock under
     Section 3.02 of the Stockholders' Agreement (as defined herein) will become
     instructions in respect of uncertificated shares of AWC Class A-1 common
     stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common stock, such that
     perfected security interests made in accordance with Section 3.02 of the

     will automatically be canceled and retired and will cease to exist, and
     each holder of a certificate representing any such shares of ARAMARK common
     stock will cease to have any rights with respect thereto, and all such
     certificates previously representing shares of ARAMARK common stock will be
     cancelled and be null and void and of no further effect.

          (d)  Each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of AWC
     issued and outstanding immediately before the Effective Time will no longer
     be outstanding and will automatically be canceled and retired and will
     cease to exist, and each holder of a

<PAGE>

     certificate representing any such shares of AWC common stock will cease to
     have any rights with respect thereto.

     shares of ARAMARK Class B common stock pursuant to ARAMARK's stock
     ownership plans and programs granted and outstanding immediately before the
     Effective Time will convert into an option or right to acquire, on the same
     terms and conditions as were applicable under the ARAMARK stock option or
     right to purchase, two (2) shares of AWC common stock with the number of
     shares to be received by each holder pursuant to such option or other right
     to purchase divided among shares of AWC Class A-1 common stock, AWC Class
     A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common stock in the manner set forth in
     Section 1.05(b) hereto at a price per share equal to one-half the exercise
     price of each option or other right to purchase or otherwise acquire shares
     of ARAMARK common stock under such plans and programs immediately before
     the Effective Time.  The parties will take all action necessary to
     implement the provisions of this Section 1.05(e), including, if necessary,
     to amend any agreement or plan providing an option or other right to
     acquire shares of ARAMARK common stock, to ensure that after giving effect
     to the foregoing no such option or right will be exercisable for ARAMARK
     common stock following the Effective Time.

          (f)  Each right to receive shares of ARAMARK Class B common stock
     pursuant to ARAMARK's Stock Unit Retirement Plan (the "SURP") outstanding
     immediately before the Effective Time will convert into a right to receive,
     on the same terms and conditions as were applicable under the ARAMARK SURP,
     two (2) shares of AWC Class A common stock, divided among AWC Class A-1
     common stock, AWC Class A-2 common stock and AWC Class A-3 common stock in
     the manner provided in Section 1.05(b) hereto.  Each right to receive
     shares of ARAMARK series D preferred stock pursuant to the ARAMARK SURP
     outstanding immediately before the Effective Time will convert into a right
     to receive, on the same terms and conditions as were applicable under the
     ARAMARK SURP, an equal number of shares of ARAMARK series D preferred
     stock.  The parties will take all action necessary to implement the
     provisions of this Section 1.05(f), including, if necessary, to amend any
     agreement or plan providing a right to acquire shares of ARAMARK common or
     preferred stock, to ensure that after giving effect to the foregoing no
     such right will exist for ARAMARK common or preferred stock following the
     Effective Time.

          (g)  Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary but
     only to the extent required by the DGCL, shares of ARAMARK Class A common
     stock that are issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
     Time and are held by holders of ARAMARK Class A common stock who comply
     with all the provisions of the DGCL concerning the right of holders of
     ARAMARK Class A common stock to an appraisal of their shares pursuant to
     Section 262 of the DGCL ("Section 262") ("Dissenting Stockholders") shall
     not be converted into AWC Class A-1 common stock as provided in Section
     1.05(a) or have the entries in connection with therewith made in the stock
     ledger of the Surviving Corporation but shall be entitled to receive such
     consideration as may be determined to be due such Dissenting Stockholder
     pursuant to

                                      4
<PAGE>

     Section 262; provided, however, that (i) if any Dissenting Stockholder
     shall subsequently deliver a written withdrawal of his or her demand for
     appraisal (with the written approval of the Surviving Corporation, if such
     withdrawal is not tendered within 60 days after the Effective Time), or
     (ii) if any Dissenting Stockholder fails to establish and perfect his, her
     or its entitlement to appraisal rights as provided by applicable law, or
     (iii) if within 120 days of the Effective Time neither any Dissenting
     Stockholder nor the Surviving Corporation has filed a petition demanding a
     determination of the value of all shares of ARAMARK Class A common stock
     outstanding at the Effective Time and held by Dissenting Stockholders in
     accordance with applicable law, then such Dissenting Stockholder or
     Stockholders, as the case may be, shall forfeit the right to appraisal of
     such shares and such shares shall thereupon be deemed to be subject to the
     provisions of Section 1.05(a) above.
