Reshaping the Workplace Food Landscape
Restaurant Associates and Levy Leisure have rebranded as RA Venues and Rapport following a restructuring exercise that brings both companies and several restaurants under the control of new Compass Group operating subsidiary, RA Group.
The move which aligns the contract foodservice company's UK and U.S. brands, is also expected to increase the number of venues that will be available to clients for external events.
RA Group's UK restaurant portfolio includes restaurants Roux at Parliament Square, City Social in partnership with Jason Atherton, and Bryn Williams at Somerset House, and Restaurant Associates serves several top-flight visitor attractions in the United States, including The Met Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
Commenting on the development, Alice Woodwark, RA Group managing director, said:
"As the workplace food landscape becomes ever more consumer-focused, Restaurant Associates will gain from RA Venues’ retailing expertise in over 50 public-facing cafes and restaurants.
"Similarly, the recognised leadership that Rapport holds in the field of guest services, as a multi-award-winning business that has been recognised as one of the Top 30 Best Places to Work in Hospitality for the last five years, brings further depth to the great service culture at both Restaurant Associates and RA Venues."
