About us

We are Primirest – the market leader in school catering with more than 30 years of tradition. We run school canteens you will love. In the Czech Republic alone, we cater for pupils and students in more than 250 nursery, primary and secondary schools. Thanks to the know-how of our parent company Delirest, the leader in contract catering in Central Europe, we are setting new standards for school lunches and snacks.

We cook our meals following carefully tested recipes and using fresh ingredients of the highest quality, sourced entirely from certified suppliers. We are registered in the network of school facilities and act in compliance with Ministry of Education Decree No. 17/2015 Coll. and other laws on school meals.

We have been operating on the Czech market since 1994. Schools, parents and nowadays several generations of children know us more under the brand Scolarest. Since January 2023, we have been offering school catering services under the brand name Primirest.
