50 years of Success Story
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.
1976 > 2000 • 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.
2000 > 2010 • From a broader range of solutions to a stand-alone business
In the early 2000s, the pace of growth quickens and innovation is extended to new territories, with the introduction of Incentive & rewards solutions in Europe and Asia and the expansion of Fleet and Mobility solutions via Ticket Car in Latin America.
In June 2010, following the demerger of Accor’s Hospitality and Prepaid Services businesses, Accor Services becomes Edenred. The new company begins operating on its own, defines its corporate mission project and successfully lists its shares on the NYSE Euronext Paris stock exchange.
2010 > 2016 • From a pioneering concept to a successful business model
Edenred is stepping up its transformation by making digital solutions a core pillar of its strategy.
The Group is also continuing to pursue ambitious growth objectives in terms of geographic expansion and its acceleration in Fleet and Mobility solutions.
2016 > 2018 • Fast Forward: A fruitful transformation
The Fast Forward strategic plan, aimed at transforming, innovating and rebalancing the Group's activities, placed Edenred on a path of profitable and sustainable growth, as confirmed by the solid financial results reported by the Group throughout the period.
