ISS acquires Austrian catering business

ISS Austria has acquired JH Catering Ltd based in Graz.

Founded by Josef and Edith Hermann in 1992, JH Catering Ltd’s core focus includes business catering at medium-sized and large companies, as well as snack services via workplace shops and vending machines.

With its concepts, JH Catering focuses on freshness, regional and seasonal ingredients, and a clear commitment to quality and sustainability, which also play a key role in ISS Austria’s business catering brand, ‘taste’njoy’.

Revenue generated by JH Catering Ltd was €8.4 million (£7.25 million) in 2018.

Speaking about the acquisition, Erich Steinreiber, Country Manager of ISS Austria, said: “We have worked with JH Catering for a very long time. The acquisition adds to the internal investments in organically building our self-delivery catering capabilities in Austria – an offering which is in particular targeted at our strategically important key account customers.”

The company currently employs around 80 people, who will become part of the ISS family.

Josef Hermann will continue to support the business during the integration of JH Catering with the ISS brand.
