Bulletin: Vancouver-based Foodee acquired by Sodexo
"There is no better partner in food and corporate services than Sodexo to support our growth targets and extend our impact internationally and across sectors." - Foodee CEO Ryan Spong
Vancouver catering platform Foodee announced that it’s been acquired by Sodexo, a global food services and management company.
The platform, now a part of the food service provider’s corporate services division, features 800+ local restaurants in 14 cities across the U.S. and Canada and will expand to include offerings in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Montreal within the next year.
The acquisition comes almost a year after Foodee made an acquisition of its own of Chewse, a leading office catering company servicing the San Francisco Bay Area, Austin, and Chicago. At the time, the company also announced a raise of $13 million in equity and debt led by BDC Capital and a major Canadian bank.
“We founded Foodee to help local restaurateurs feed innovative companies seeking to attract and retain great teams,” said Ryan Spong, CEO, Foodee. “There is no better partner in food and corporate services than Sodexo to support our growth targets and extend our impact internationally and across sectors. Foodee’s off-premise delivery and menu-planning software strengthen Sodexo’s existing corporate offering and we look forward to bringing a broader suite of solutions to our shared clients."
“We are excited to add Foodee’s innovative, contactless delivery option for our clients seeking to support local businesses,” said David Bailey, CEO, Corporate Services, Sodexo North America. “As the workforce evolves, we believe that employees will love the convenience and variety that Foodee provides to support their dietary needs. We have already seen the success of Foodee and Nourish Inc. partnering to serve clients in our Northern California market.”
