Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company and 19th largest employer globally, has announced an exclusive, 10-year partnership with For Five, a coffee and food solutions company located in Queens, New York.
The partnership will see For Five’s specialty coffee served to Sodexo’s Corporate Services clients through its customised food menu at client sites across the United States and Canada.
This includes the Federal Reserve Board, Foley & Hoag, and other client sites across Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, New York City, Boston, and Washington D.C.
“Sodexo is proud to partner with For Five – a company committed to quality, hospitality and collaboration,” says David Bailey, CEO of Corporate Services, Sodexo North America.
“Together, we will elevate the customer experience in corporate dining to meet the needs of today’s evolving workplace. Whether companies welcome employees back to the office, or support them in other locations, they want to roll out the best in flexible dining. When it comes to premium, freshly roasted coffee, For Five is as good as it gets.”
For Five will also be available via Foodee, a Sodexo-acquired technology company that connects local restaurants with corporate companies searching for catering solutions with its customisable and convenient meal planning service.
“This partnership provides For Five with the unique opportunity to serve Sodexo’s robust client base,” says Stefanos Vouvoudakis, President and Co-founder of For Five Coffee.
“Our specialty cafés represent our New York background, our love for quality coffee, and the understanding that it’s not just the coffee, but where you drink it that matters. And we look forward to deploying these cafés at Sodexo corporate client sites and other retail locations.”
Founded in 2010 by two best friends, For Five’s portfolio has expanded rapidly now including more than 2000 customers and over 30 cafés in the United States. It is now a “one-stop shop”, offering sourcing, cupping, roasting, importing, and coffee distribution services.
