ISS Food Services has launched Simply MADE to encourage the confidence to return to workplace restaurants.

The scheme is a new take on ISS’ established MADE brand which elevates safety, health and well-being whilst exploring ways to deliver engaging dining experiences in the “new normal” world. 

The programme is built on a four-tiered approach of simplicity, elegance, relevance and viability (SERV).

 

“Simply MADE has been created to help us and our customers overcome the challenges brought about by COVID-19 and to give all our stakeholders confidence in our service."

– Mark Davies

Managing Director,  ISS Food Services UK

Workplace Confidence

 

Simply MADE has been created to provide clients and their communities with the confidence to return to their workplace restaurants and to inspire their desire to enjoy food service experiences as part of their creative and collaborative time at work.

As more people return to offices, ISS will introduce further, tailored service features. Should there be a need to revert to a simpler approach, Simply MADE provides the flexibility to react and adapt with speed and efficiency. 

Mark Davies, Managing Director of ISS Food Services UK said, “Simply MADE has been created to help us and our customers overcome the challenges brought about by COVID-19 and to give all our stakeholders confidence in our service. 

“It will help us to show that our restaurants continue to champion quality, British produce, served by passionate chefs, whilst highlighting that we also have a renewed focus on safety and value.

“We want to play our part in the UK’s recovery from the virus, utilising our position as caterers to nurture people’s health and wellbeing, provide safe social places which spark happiness and productivity, champion local and British supply partners and work towards greener food services practices which support the environment.”
