WE LOVE FOOD
at ECE

WE LOVE FOOD at ECE is a culture, a philosophy and a companywide approach to the foodservice sector that we have created for our business. The importance of the food and beverage industry in place-making in retail property is hugely important and so we have created a unique program, which is both internal and external facing, to ensure that we deliver the best spaces, the best operators and the best “places for people” that they can enjoy.

Internally, we are training our teams across the company, from Leasing to Architecture and Construction, to understand the importance of food, how to deliver it and how to give it the best chance of success. Everybody is included.

Externally, we have created our WE LOVE FOOD brand and have worked hard to ensure that operators and the industry know about the incredible expertise that exists in the ECE business and the approach that we have to food and beverage. We want to be the “property partner of choice” and we are working very hard to achieve that. We are engaging at all levels externally to ensure that we attract and retain the best partners and concepts and that we have proper engagement and understanding of their needs.

We love our food
