Compass Group is to sell off its travel concessions arm, Select Service Partner, for at least £300m. SSP operates from airports, railway stations and motorway service areas in more than 35 countries and includes brands such as Burger King, Caffe Ritazza and Upper Crust. It is not clear what Compass will do with the proceeds of any sale. The company announced last week that it had recruited Sir Roy Gardner to replace chairman Sir Frances Mackay from next year.
