A little history

  • Edenred began operating in 1954 in Great Britain and created the concept of luncheon vouchers and was the first company in the world to issue vouchers.
  • Ticket Restaurant® introduced in France in 1962 became an officially recognised non-financial benefit as a result of a decree issued by the French government. 
  • In 1983, the Accor Group was created as a result of a merger of the hotel business with Jacques Borel international (Ticket Restaurant®). The next few years involved an expansion to markets in Europe, South America, Asia, Australia, and South Africa thanks to which Ticket Restaurant® became the most recognisable brand in the world in this sector. 
  • In 1997, the Accor Group began operating in Poland introducing solutions in the form of paper vouchers used by companies in non-financial benefits and business loyalty building programs - read more.
  • In 2000 Accor corporate services changed its name to Accor Services.
  • In 2010, the hotel and the prepaid services businesses of Accor Group were split as a result of which Edenred was established as an independent company.
