Perth Glory have confirmed a new official catering partner for the upcoming 2023/24 season with Empyrean Education Institute announced to take over the role.
Empyrean Education Institute is Perth’s leading vocational educational provider in Commercial Cookery, Patisserie, Hospitality & Community Services.
Home to over 300 international and local Australian students, Empyrean prides itself on quality training, close industry connections and community engagement and currently operates a café inside historic Fremantle Prison.
This partnership will mean both the Glory and Empyrean link up on a range of digital promotional activations and community initiatives in the coming year to promote the Empyrean brand further across the state.
Empyrean will also provide catering to the Glory players and staff with over 100 freshly cooked meals prepared at their new training ground at Fremantle Oval.
Perth Glory CEO Anthony Radich expressed his excitement at Empyrean joining the Glory family.
“We are very fortunate to have an organisation of Empyrean’s calibre located right on our doorstep here in Fremantle,” he said in a press release.
“Access to fresh, nutritious and tasty meals is essential for elite athletes and Empyrean will provide exactly what our A-League Men and A-League Women’s squads require in order to attain and sustain peak performance levels.”
Empyrean Education Institute’s Operation Manager, Annie Zheng spoke about the company’s drive to succeed within the sport.
“We are thrilled to announce our exciting new partnership with Perth Glory, a powerhouse in Australian football,” she added in Glory’s press release.
“This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our commitment to supporting and promoting the beautiful game in Australia.
“Perth Glory’s dedication to excellence, both on and off the pitch, perfectly aligns with our core values, making this partnership a natural fit.
“Together, we aim to inspire and engage fans and students and drive community initiatives.
“We look forward to a successful and close partnership, filled with triumphs, friendship and unforgettable moments.”
There is a natural synergy between the two parties in this partnership which will ensure it succeeds in this season and potentially beyond. Empyrean eluded to making a mark on the beautiful game and Perth Glory needed to improve their catering department for their club so overall this collaboration makes a lot of sense.
