Sunterra’s newest market location brings nourishment and convenience to busy WestJetters

Calgary, Alberta – The opening of Sunterra’s eighth market, located in the new WestJet Campus, marks the marriage of two Calgary-based, locally-owned companies who share a common vision and focus on people.

“We are thrilled to join WestJetters in their new home,” says Sunterra President Glen Price. “WestJet has a strong and continued commitment to its people and to enriching their corporate culture; we are proud to be a major part of that experience.”

“We’re very pleased to be working with Sunterra in our new Campus building,” says Fred Ring, WestJet Executive Vice President, Corporate Projects. “We choose the people we work with very carefully, and make sure they share the same values, the same goals and most of all, the same kind of focus on customer service. Sunterra is a home-grown, hard-working, successful Alberta company, just like us.”

The same sense of comfort and well-being throughout the campus can be found within the new market, designed to help support busy WestJetters by providing healthy, nourishing food options that complement their lifestyle.

“We took the campus building philosophy that everyone has a ‘right to light’ and applied that to our campus market,” says Price. “Everyone has the right to enjoy food, whether at home or at work, that is healthy, wholesome, nutritious and fresh.”

The market elevates the concept of convenience, from prepared three course meals at an affordable price to customized, nourishing catering services; to freshly prepared daily lunch offerings. Sunterra will be hosting cooking classes at the campus, designed to be fun, informative and entertaining. And, as the on-site vendor, is providing healthy options and fresh, signature products at stations throughout the building.

“This definitely isn’t your average corporate lunch room,” says Price. “A big focus for us is offering affordable convenience to our customers to remove the stress and chore of getting a meal on the table or packing a lunch. We’ll even shop for WestJetters and deliver their groceries to their home or office.”

The new market is an exciting aesthetic blend of the traditional, European-style market concept paired with modern, clean and fresh features meant to complement the cheerful feel of the new campus.
The partnership itself is a perfect fit between two companies who have succeeded in challenging the traditional business models in their respective industries.

“We have partnered with a company who shares the same commitment to quality and so many of our core values,” says Price. “At a time when many companies are facing difficult circumstances, we feel very fortunate to be expanding, growing and cementing new partnerships with great companies like WestJet. The sky’s the limit.”
