The first in-company Jamie Oliver restaurant was opened in mid December, at Aramark’s kitchens at the J.P. Morgan offices in Dublin.
In mid 2018, Aramark signed an exclusive ten year deal with the Jamie Oliver Group which will see the Jamie Oliver concepts rolled out across the Aramark network of workplaces across northern Europe.
Aramark was appointed the foodservice provider for J.P. Morgan at its new building in Dublin’s Capital Dock campus. Aramark and the Jamie Oliver group, working with J.P. Morgan, identified Jamie Oliver’s Deli as the offering most appropriate social dining experience for J.P. Morgan’s workforce.
Employees will be able to enjoy a dedicated all-day Jamie Oliver food offering including breakfast, lunch and snacks, with a focus on healthy and balanced food made with local and sustainably sourced ingredients. The emphasis will be on giving employees a constantly changing variety of dishes and recipes, including porridge, pizzas, and salad bars. A coffee dock with a full grab & go menu will also be available onsite.
Frank Gleeson, President at Aramark Northern Europe, said: “Our mission is to deliver experiences that enrich and nourish lives and we are delighted to open our first client restaurant in partnership with Jamie Oliver Group here in Dublin. Aramark has been leading culinary innovation within our industry both with our bespoke offerings and in developing partnerships with chefs like Jamie Oliver. We are bringing healthy, nutritious dining experiences to our clients and driving productivity and health in workplaces throughout Northern Europe.”
Jon Knight, CEO, Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group, said: “We’re thrilled to see this new Jamie Oliver location come to life as our first dedicated concept to open as part of the Aramark partnership.”
