Healthy food and juice chain Crussh has cemented its move into the workplace catering sector after opening a site in the newly-renovated Minster Building in London.
The chain, which runs 34 sites in the capital, will operate a WiFi-enabled cafe space on the ground floor with access for the public.
The new workplace format will retain the Crussh Fit Food and Juice Bars menu, which includes freshly made-juices and smoothies, breakfast pots, bagels, salads, wraps and healthy treats.
Organic and Fairtrade coffee will be handmade on a La Marzocca espresso machine.
Shane Kavanagh, CEO of Crussh, commented: “We are really excited by this opportunity to step into the world of workplace catering and help promote well-being and healthy living at the Minster building. We’ve been impressed by the landlord’s commitment to delivering a unique building since we first met them, and we look forward to meeting the building tenants and introducing them to our brand.”
Earlier this year Crussh signed a franchise partnership with contract caterer Sodexo.
The deal will see Crussh outlets opening at Sodexo client sites with large volumes of customers, including universities, hospitals, major events and corporate workplaces. Crussh will be an exclusive offering to Sodexo’s clients in these markets.
The deal will see more than 35 Crussh franchises open at Sodexo sites across the UK and Ireland over the next five years.
Dan Corlett, Sodexo Service Operations head of food platform, said at the time of the announcement: “Crussh will be taking a creative approach to the requirements of each location, so customers could see food trucks and pop-ups as well as traditional café formats.”
