Sodexo has announced a landmark franchise deal with Crussh Fit Food & Juice Bars, with a commitment to open at least 35 new sites over the next five years across the UK and Ireland. The partnership will see the healthy food and juice chain opening outlets across all of the Sodexo business, from workplace catering to universities, hospitals and government locations.
Crussh will take a creative approach to the requirements of each location, covering traditional café formats, as well as larger scale sites, food trucks and pop-ups. The first site will open this summer and there is a pipeline of sites under review.
Dan Corlett, Sodexo service operations’ head of food platform, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Crussh to bring this innovative and healthy brand to our clients and customers, while also complementing our sustainability strategy Better Tomorrow 2025.”
Shane Kavanagh, CEO of Crussh, added: “This is a really significant partnership for us and it provides an incredible opportunity to bring our brand of healthy food and juice to a new audience in locations where we think we can make a real difference.”
