SSP and the Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group have agreed a partnership to operate Jamie’s Italian restaurants at airports across France, Germany, Switzerland and Holland. The first two restaurants are scheduled to open at Terminal 2 of Nice Airport in 2017.
Jamie’s Italian has won thousands of fans by creating neighborhood venues, inspired by the traditions of Italy, where people relax, share and enjoy each other’s company. The restaurants are designed to be affordable and accessible, a place where everyone is welcome and feels comfortable. The casual dining experience is based on offering tasty and simple Italian food, using only the best fresh ingredients. All produce used in Jamie’s Italian is reared to higher standards of welfare.
Commenting on the new agreement Kate Swann, CEO of SSP said; “At SSP, we partner with leading brands across a range of categories, and we firmly believe in working with the best in the business. Jamie Oliver’s reputation is outstanding, and we are delighted to be able to bring the hugely successful Jamie’s Italian brand to our clients and customers.”
Simon Blagden, CEO of Jamie’s Italian, commented on the partnership: “We’re delighted to be working with SSP. As F&B operators in the travel sector they are held in very high regard and we have found their team to be an accomplished partner to work with. We believe Jamie’s Italian will appeal to all passenger groups and we’re now looking forward to working towards our first opening in Nice.”
The first Jamie’s Italian opened in the UK in 2008, and the restaurant brand is now loved by diners across the world in countries including Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
