Crussh CEO steps down

Crussh Fit Food and Juice Bars has announced that Shane Kavanagh will be stepping down from his role as CEO.

After four years in the role, Kavanagh will now be leaving to “take on new challenges”, and the group will now search for a new CEO to “lead the brand on its next stage of development”.

During his tenure, Kavanagh saw the Crussh estate expand from 28 London sites to 35 sites across London, Birmingham and Bristol

He formed “landmark” partnerships with SSP and Sodexo, as well as an exclusive retail range with Sainsbury’s. He later introduced workplace catering in WeWork across London.

Crussh executive chairman Jonathan Hart said: “Under Shane’s leadership Crussh has successfully evolved a strategy of franchise, concession and product supply which is now delivering significant results . In tandem with this, Shane has navigated the core business through the most turbulent times ever faced by London’s food-to-go marketplace.

“With the prospect of rapid growth for our product supply business, we now have a fantastic opportunity to develop Crussh as a national and international FMCG brand alongside our company-owned, franchise and concession stores.” 

He added: “Crussh has the potential to significantly build on its leadership in the healthy food-to-go sector and we are looking forward to finding someone with the skills and experience to take Crussh onto this next exciting phase of our development.

“We have an outstanding team at Crussh and I would like to thank Shane for creating a great future for Crussh and for leading the business with such passion and energy. He leaves with our best wishes.”
