From a local presence
to global leadership

The Employee benefits business expands into the global ​marketplace, starting with Europe and then Latin America, led by two flagship programs, Ticket Restaurant® and Ticket Alimentación®
A subsidiary of the Accor Group since 1983, the Ticket Restaurant business turns a new corner and becomes Accor Services in 1998.
1962 > 1976

Heading for sustainable growth

Inspired by the Luncheon Vouchers introduced in 1954 in the United Kingdom, Jacques Borel brings the Ticket Restaurant® meal voucher to the French market in 1962. 
In 1967, a government decree makes the meal voucher an officially recognized employee benefit. Building on its success, the concept is exported to other countries beginning in 1976.
