Sodexo, a leading global services company, has launched Kitchen Works Co. a new food offer designed to meet the needs of employees in manufacturing and data centre environments.

The first Kitchen Works Co. restaurant has just opened at Toyota’s Burnaston manufacturing site in Derby, the home of the new Corolla that was launched in January.

James Mundy, marketing manager, corporate services, Sodexo UK & Ireland says: “Kitchen Works Co. takes its inspiration from modern quick service restaurants with a home-from-home feel.

“It has been created to provide a mix of familiar favourites with more aspirational dishes in a relaxing environment.“With sustainability a key concern for many we are pleased that our chefs will be using ‘wonky’ fruit and veg which not only allows them to be inspired by in-season produce but enables them to use their creativity and culinary skill to create some delicious dishes for the Burnaston workforce.”

He said it had been developed using the latest consumer insight and offers nutritious and tasty food in a welcoming environment providing a dining space where colleagues can refuel, recharge and regroup away from their day-to-day tasks.

Sodexo’s own research among automotive workers in 2017 revealed that 64% were aware that their performance and productivity was directly related to what and when they eat and 68% regard the quality of food provided as important, but only 32% felt well-catered for by their organisation.

He added: “Kitchen Works Co. addresses this, delivering a wide range of meal options featuring global cuisine, plant-based dishes ideal for those following a vegetarian and flexitarian diet and a new grab-and-go range.”
