HILLSBORO, Ore. -- An office cafeteria operator has notified Oregon officials that it will cut 174 jobs in April when its contract with Nike expires.

Kathy Nicholl of Guckenheimer Enterprises Inc. says her company has managed cafes and catering at Nike's Portland-area headquarters since 1990.

Still, she tells The Oregonian that Nike's new contractor will likely hire 80 percent to 90 percent of Guckenheimer's employees to continue working at the Nike campus.

Nicholl says Guckenheimer will try to help other employees find work at its other area cafeterias.
