Catering contract with FK Austria Wien

The football club FK Austria Wien has appointed the catering department of the Grand Hotel Wien, "Grand Catering" with the catering of all home matches at the Horr Stadium for the next three years. The contract was signed on July 14th, 2009 at the Grand Hotel Wien by Thomas Parits, Corporate Management Sports, Markus Kraetschmer, Corporate Management Finance and Carl-Peter Echtermeijer, Assistant General Manager of the Grand Hotel Wien.

With immediate effect, Grand Catering is in charge of all home matches played by the first team (regular and friendly games), by the ÖFB-Cup, the UEFA Europe League and the Champions League. Two different areas are being catered at the stadium, the Business-VIP and the Classic-VIP-area. About 700 people are being expected at each match.

"We are very proud of taking over the catering for the FK Austria Wien. It is a pleasure to become active with catering in the field of sports now, too, next to economy, society and culture", says Carl-Peter Echtermeijer, Assistant General Manager of the Grand Hotel Wien.

Austrian delicacies and snacks

"The challenge for our catering team during the matches is to serve a lot of people in a very short period of time and with the quality and the service you would expect from a Grand Hotel", says Siegfried Pucher, Food & Beverage Director of the Grand Hotel Wien. "We offer Austrian delicacies and snacks, bearing seasonal specials and the regions of the opposing team in mind. In winter for example we will serve hot wine punch on the tribune, or when the FK Austria plays against a Styrian team we offer a typical Styrian dish."
