Accor hotels boost at-home dining menus in lockdown

Accor hotels across Sydney have boosted their takeaway and at-home dining menus, introducing some new options for locked down locals.

Sydneysiders are under stay-at-home orders but they can still enjoy the delights of fine dining with an array of takeaway dishes, gourmet DIY meal kits and virtual wine and dine experiences.

Participating hotels include Harbour Rocks Hotel Sydney, offering a MGallery virtual wine and dine experience; Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour, which brings its French bistro and gourmet dining experience, ‘Atelier at Home, by Sofitel’ to the comfort of your home; and the Pullman Sydney Olympic Park, introducing Bacar Restaurant & Bar dinner boxes.

In mid-June Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath announced a major recruitment drive for hospitality staff.

“We are now recruiting for roles at most of our hotels, apartments and resorts across the Pacific,” he said.

As part of the drive to bring in more than 1000 new recruits, Accor launched an internship program of fully-paid internships for 100 students at 22 hospitality venues throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Accor is a global hospitality group consisting of more than 5,100 properties and 10,000 food and beverage venues throughout 110 countries. It includes luxury and premium brands, midscale and economy offerings and more, within a portfolio of brands and approximately 260,000 team members worldwide.

One of its luxury brands will debut in the Victorian capital in 2023 when the SO/Hotels & Resorts Melbourne opens in a prime CBD position overlooking Flagstaff Gardens.

Accor franchisees are supported by a team of five dedicated to servicing the group’s growing franchise network across the Pacific.
