The lead directors of the UK foodservice consultancy arm of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) have taken over its management and operation under a mutual agreement that has seen it launched as a new independent enterprise.

Adam Griffin, Paulina Herrmann, Ian Hanlon, Richard Moulds and Ken Higman will continue to provide strategic foodservice advice as the newly-formed Coverpoint Foodservice Consulting. They will work with global landlords, investors, developers and operators, delivering strategic foodservice advice and solutions across all types of real estate assets.

The team has been leading the foodservice consultancy division of JLL since November 2014, when the commercial real estate organisation purchased Coverpoint Catering Consultancy, where they were employed at the time.

A joint statement from the Director Team of the newly formed business said: “After six years working with some great people at JLL, we’re excited to take Coverpoint independent again and go back to its entrepreneurial roots. We will still provide the same excellent level of service and commitment to our global client base, but being independent will allow us to be a bit more flexible in who we work with and the type of projects we undertake.

“We have chosen to restore the Coverpoint name because it still resonates with a lot of clients and represents our values as passionate foodservice people. In what is undoubtedly the toughest time our industry has ever faced, a strategic approach to foodservice is going to be more critical than ever and we look forward to using our passion for the foodservice industry to develop creative solutions for our clients old and new. We’ve had great support and encouragement from JLL’s management during the process and we’d like to thank them for their part in this journey.”

The team has over 75 combined years of foodservice consultancy experience and 40 years’ operational experience. Between them, they have worked across 50 international markets on more than 1,000 projects that cover the full spectrum of food and beverage (F&B), from shopping centres, urban regenerations and iconic hotels to world class stadiums, historic venues and blue chip office buildings.
