Crussh, the healthy food and juice chain, has signed a franchise deal with the world’s largest services company Sodexo, with a commitment to open at least 35 new sites over the next five years, across the UK and Ireland.

The partnership will see Crussh opening outlets across all of the Sodexo business, from workplace catering to universities, hospitals & government locations.

Crussh will adapt the format for each location, covering traditional café formats, as well as larger scale sites, food trucks and pop-ups.

The first site will be opening in summer 2018, and there is a pipeline of sites under review.

Shane Kavanagh, chief executive of Crussh, said: “This is a really significant partnership for us and 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.

“Our goal at Crussh is to improve the wellbeing of our people and our customers, and since we began this process we have felt a great alignment with Sodexo’s aim to promote quality of life services. We have been working on this for some time, and we can’t wait to get the first site opened”.

Dan Corlett, Sodexo service operations head of food platform said, “We’re delighted to partner with Crussh and bring this innovative and healthy brand to our clients and customers and complement our sustainability strategy Better Tomorrow 2025.”
