Compass Group PLC was founded in the United Kingdom in 1941, and now operates in more than 50 countries and has more than 500,000 employees worldwide. Compass Group Denmark started out in 1973 as SAS catering, which in its day introduced the concept of inflight catering to the Danish market. In response to booming demand for charter flights, we expanded, and in the 1980s turned our attention to terra firma, and evolved into the market’s leading provider of canteen services. In the same decade, we went on to add catering to hospitals and offshore to our business portfolio. In September 2010, we acquired IDA SERVICE, and since then we have gone from strength to strength within catering, cleaning and facility management. Today Compass Group Denmark operates under the brand names Eurest, Eurest Services, Chartwells and ESS. Compass Group Denmark currently has just over 2800 employees nationwide.
