Eurest Opens O'Naturals Unit

Eurest has opened the first of what is projected to be a series of O'Naturals natural/organic eateries at the headquarters of foodservice client Timberland in Stratham, NH. It is the first result of a strategic partnership agreement between the O'Naturals natural and organic QSR chain and Eurest parent Compass Group intended to bring franchised O'Naturals branded outlets to Compass managed locations.

The Timberland unit is the first O'Naturals franchise in a corporate dining setting. There are also three company-owned locations in the Northeast and two franchise locations in Wichita, and Orlando.

"The customers at Timberland love the great taste of the O'Naturals menu items and their product line is a good fit for many of our clients" says Will Chizmar head of marketing for Compass Group's Business and Industry Dining Services.

Created by Stonyfield Farms President/CEO Gary Hirschberg, O'Naturals menus flatbread sandwiches and pizzas, soups, tossed salads, Asian noodles, kids' meals, fresh baked goods and, where permitted, micro-brewed beer and wine. Ingredients are natural, organic, local or wild.
