Fit food and juice company Crussh has announced a franchise partnership with travel location specialists SSP, which will see the concept move into transport hubs across the UK and Europe.
The first site is due to open in May in London’s Paddington station, with a pipeline of additional outlets under discussion.
The sites will offer freshly made juices, smoothies, salads, wraps, hot food, and organic coffee.
Shane Kavanagh, CEO of Crussh, said: “We are hugely excited about working with SSP given their expertise and excellent track record and the opportunity to bring our brand of healthy fit food-to-go into travel rail and air locations for the first time.
“Paddington is the perfect place to start, and we can’t wait to get going. The last 18 months have seen us refresh the brand, develop new store formats and refurbish much of our high street estate, as well as begin some exciting partnerships with Sainsbury’s, Everyone Active and Debenhams. It’s our 20th year, and this deal is the perfect way to mark the occasion.”
Simon Smith CEO of SSP UK added: “One of the ways we delight rail and air passengers across the world, is by working with some of the most innovative and on-trend brands. Crussh definitely falls into that category, and it will be the ideal complement to the mix of brands at Paddington. We have been instrumental in introducing some great names to the travel environment, and we are thrilled to be adding Crussh to our portfolio.”
The announcement follows the announcements of partnerships with Sainsbury’s, Debenhams and Everyone Active in 2017.
