Grand Hotel Wien and FK Austria Wien renew catering contract for four more years

April 19th, 2012

fak-austria-logoThe Viennese football club FK Austria Wien and the Grand Hotel Wien have signed a new contract to renew their cooperation for four more years until June 2016. Thus, the Grand Hotel Wien will continue to take care of the gastronomic well-being of all visitors to the GENERALI-arena. Furthermore, the five star hotel will resume to be the official team hotel before home matches and the venue for many other events of the violets.

The contract was signed at the Vienna city derby last weekend by the Austria Wien chairmen Thomas Parits and Markus Kraetschmer, by Thomas Schwarz, CEO Gastro Ltd., and by Andrea King, JJW Hotel & Resorts and CEO of Grand Hotel Ltd. This new contract prolongs the successful partnership of the last three years.

The Grand Hotel Wien, part of the international chain JJW Hotels & Resorts, will cater all the home matches of the team. In the different VIP-areas (Business VIP, Premium VIP, Classic VIP, Players Lounge) the Grand Catering team will welcome up to 800 guests per match. All the kiosks in the stadium will be cared for by Grand Catering as well and thus benefit from the high quality of the five star catering.

FK Austria chairman Markus Kraetschmer is delighted about the renewal of the contract: "It is especially rewarding to be able to continue our cooperation with such a great and reliable partner. Since the beginning of the partnership in 2008 we have been more than happy with service, quality and the great teamwork. We are very much looking forward to working with the Grand Hotel in the coming years."

Andrea King, CEO of the Grand Hotel Wien, adds: "We are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with FK Austria Wien for the next four years. The club's outstanding reputation across the world, along with its rich Austrian history, afford us the ideal platform to branch out from our own heritage of community, culture and economy; and into the exciting world of sport."

"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 strive to offer the best quality with regards to food, beverages, and service not only in the VIP Areas but for all the fans and visitors at the kiosks as well."

The football club Austria Wien was founded in 1911. It is one of the most successful football clubs in Austria. The team became cup master for 27 times and Austrian master for 23 times already.
