You make great food. Our job is to bring it to as many people as we can. With FOODWORKS, we do the legwork to find you prime pop-up space so you can keep doing what you do best.
We place you in highly visible pop-up locations in office buildings, retail complexes, college campuses and other venues so you can do what you do best: make delicious food. Here’s how we get it done:
As part of global hospitality firm Compass Group/Eurest, we have access to prime locations serving a wide customer base. Your customers are virtually guaranteed.
We outfit every FOODWORKS station with the equipment you and your staff need to prepare your signature food. We help with operational and marketing support, too.
We typically rotate our restaurant partners on weekly basis, but we’re super flexible and will work with you to determine the best schedule and location.
Because we want you to succeed! It’s a low-risk, rent-free partnership. You don’t pay us a dime, and you get the majority of the revenue from your pop-ups, not to mention the chance to build your business and brand.
We adjust your pop-up schedule and locations based on your needs, not ours.
FOODWORKS exposes you to new customers, an intangible benefit that can’t be measured.
It’s a low-risk way to grow, whether you have a brick-and-mortar or want to open your first.
“Kudos to Compass Group and Eurest for this concept. It gives small entrepreneurs
and independents the exposure you wouldn't normally get.”
“You’ve gotta generate buzz. You’ve gotta get people genuinely excited about what you’re doing, and that’s what FOODWORKS does.”
“For FOODWORKS to reach out to us and offer us this opportunity as a small
business… that's been a blessing.”
FOODWORKS is a division of global hospitality leader Compass Group/Eurest. Like our parent company, we take a food-first approach. We care deeply about quality, sustainability and integrity in sourcing, and we deliver that to our guests daily across our dining venues.
