Good service is not a state, it’s a drive to meet and exceed customer needs. To ignite new energy, ideas and passion into our industry where people care for people, we launched Sparx – a three-month accelerator program, powered by Sodexo. The purpose is to help early stage startups and entrepreneurs speed up their business and improve people’s quality of life.
The X-factor in our name refers to those lighting sparks. That finishing touch and attentive care that make customers smile and service professionals stand out. In other words, the ones we’re looking for. Is your business still in the early days of prototyping or ready to scale? Do you have a great digital or analogue service offering that needs a push? Apply to the program and pitch your idea to us. If you are selected, we will share our expertise and help your business seize new opportunities.
