Aramark has launched its first Jamie Oliver venue, at JP Morgan in Dublin, under its exclusive 10-year partnership with the celebrity chef.
The contract caterer opened a Jamie Oliver’s Deli at the investment bank, serving an all-day offering with a focus on healthy and balanced meals made with sustainably sourced ingredients.
The offering will include DIY porridge and salad bars, hand-stretched pizzas, signature Jamie sandwiches, soups and a full grab ’n’ go offer.
Frank Gleeson, president of 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, chief executive of the 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. With this new site, we’re achieving Jamie’s goal of bringing wholesome, nutritious and delicious food to hard-working people and transforming the way they can eat in the workplace. We’re excited to keep growing with Aramark Northern Europe and to continue impacting our customers in a positive way.”
The partnership between the contract caterer and Oliver allows Aramark to offer its clients all of the chef’s current and future concepts, including Jamie’s Italian, Jamie’s Diner, Jamie’s Deli and Jamie’s Pizzeria.
The deal was announced in April when Gleeson said it would help the caterer as it looked to expand its business and industry presence in the UK.
