Crussh Fit Food and Juice Bars has opened its first site in partnership with hospitality company Sodexo, at City, University of London, on 18 March 2019.
The new kiosk at City will offer the company’s classic menu, offering a range of healthy food from breakfast pots, toasties, salads, wraps and healthy treats, alongside Cold Press juice and organic coffee. The kiosk will be in the main building on Northampton Square.
The announcement follows last year’s franchise deal between Crussh and Sodexo which will see Crussh open outlets across all of the Sodexo businesses from workplace catering to universities, hospitals and government locations across the UK and Ireland.
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. More outlets are in the pipeline with Sodexo clients in both the higher education and healthcare sectors.
Shane Kavanagh, CEO of Crussh, said: “We are delighted to open our first university outlet at City. We know the university well, and it’s really exciting to be able to introduce healthy, nutritious food to campus. We can’t wait to get going and think this is a great opportunity to positively impact the wellbeing of students and staff onsite.”
Simon Knight, managing director, universities, Sodexo UK and Ireland, added: “We are delighted to welcome Crussh at City University. The University is committed to promoting healthier eating habits for both staff and students and the introduction of Crussh as one of our catering offers helps support the University to achieve this.
“Matt Dawson is an ambassador for Sodexo, having him with us on our opening day helped us engage with the staff and students about the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle has on their performance. We are looking forward to bringing this innovative and healthy brand to more of our clients and customers in the near future.”
In 2018 Crussh opened new sites in partnership with SSP Group, operator of food and beverage brands in travel locations worldwide, and with Everyone Active Leisure Operator.
