Eurest, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has launched the first public-facing site of its Caffé Dallucci brand at Solent Business Park in Fareham.
Focussing on providing fresh food, great coffee and good company, the brand will now provide its premium food and beverage offer to a public audience, having launched a series of other cafes within client sites.
Workers and visitors to the business park will be able to enjoy the selection of food-to-go options at the core of the Caffé Dallucci offer, including the new bespoke range ‘Chop Chop’, which includes sandwiches, salads, snack pots, sushi and hot pots.
Additionally a selection of focaccias, ciabattas and croissants made by chefs on-site are also available, as well as deli sandwiches and pots of fruit and yoghurts.
Caffé Dallucci will provide customers with hot and cold hand crafted beverages, as well as a range of whole leaf teas, infusions and guest coffees.
The new café will be open from 7:30am to 4pm throughout the working week, catering for both the breakfast and lunch rushes.
As part of the refurbishment, outdoor seating has been fitted at the rear for customers to enjoy their food and drinks while looking out over the picturesque lake.
Louise Pilkington, marketing director at Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “This is a significant milestone in the development of our Caffé Dallucci brand. We created the original concept to respond to customer demand for great coffee, delicious food and a welcoming place to take a break or work, throughout the day.”
Steve Lovegrove, head of business excellence at Compass Group UK & Ireland, commented: “Opening our first public facing Caffé Dallucci is an exciting journey to embark upon. The brand has been really well received at our client sites, so we are looking forward to seeing the results from the new public facing café. This marks a new chapter for the brand with indicators showing great reception from consumers.”
Compass Group UK & Ireland first launched Caffé Dallucci at its Chertsey headquarters in 2015, after being brought over from the Germany business where it has had huge success.
The concept was developed by the marketing team, enabling Compass to showcase how it can transform the “in-house” catering eating experience.
