Gate Gourmet was founded in 1992 from Swissair catering. In the 1990s, as part of the SAir Group of companies, Gate Gourmet grew through acquisitions, including the flight kitchens of Aero-Chef, SAS, Varig and British Airways. In 1999, Gate Gourmet merged with Dobbs International Services, which was established in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1941. Gate Gourmet was sold by the SAIr Group in 2002 and under private ownership the company underwent a major restructuring and refinancing. Following a number of acquisitions in 2006 and 2007, the gategroup brand was introduced in early 2008, providing an unprecedented product and service offering to the travel industry. In May 2009, gategroup was listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
