Gina Champion-Cain Champion-Cain: “There’s a huge movement in corporate hospitality and amenity space, and part of that is seeing more of these chef-driven hospitality concepts.”

SAN DIEGO—Today’s food offerings in office buildings go beyond the deli in the lobby to include services like cooking classes, wine tastings and other collaborative efforts that allow businesses to attract and retain the best talent, American National Investors’ CEO Gina Champion-Cain tells GlobeSt.com. Leading life-science real estate developer BioMed Realty is adding ANI’s culinary amenity, the Patio Marketplace, to AXIOM, BioMed’s three-building campus on Executive Dr. and Towne Centre Ct. in University Towne Centre here. The 5,000-square-foot eatery will mark the first restaurant within a corporate campus for the San Diego-based hospitality company the Patio Group, an entity owned by ANI.

The Patio Group is known for creating sustainable, quality cuisine and bringing a local neighborhood feel to each of its restaurant concepts. The Patio Marketplace at AXIOM, scheduled to open this spring, will be built on the ground floor of the 4535 Towne Centre Court building. The venue will offer a “unique neighborhood destination for guests to recharge, reinvigorate and refresh before, during and after their work day or at a variety of events, which will be held at the restaurant,” according to the firm. The AXIOM location will be the second Marketplace for the Patio Group as the brand continues to grow its corporate hospitality division.
