Chase and Thomas Keller Set the Table for a New and Delicious Partnership

The two brands are creating a new series of culinary experiences for
their shared customers featuring exclusive dining events, preferred
access and more

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JPMorgan Chase & Co. [NYSE: JPM] and Chef Thomas Keller are kicking off
the new year with a new collaboration. In early 2019, the two companies
will begin creating one-of-a-kind experiences as part of a growing
series exclusively for Chase customers across Thomas Keller’s
restaurants, including The French Laundry and Per Se, as well as his
newest additions – The Surf Club in Surfside, FL, La Calenda in
Yountville, CA, as well as TAK Room, which will open this spring in New
York City.

“Just as Chef Keller elevates the dining experience beyond the meal,
we’re always looking to give value beyond the purchase,” said Catherine
Hogan, President of Chase Branded Cards. “There’s amazing potential in
this partnership, and we can’t wait to work on it together.”

The relationship with Thomas Keller adds to Chase Sapphire’s
long-standing Private Dining Series, which gives cardmembers unique
access to some of the most celebrated restaurants and chefs in the
world. Chase Sapphire customers will be first to access the new
experiences using Chase Ultimate Rewards points or cash. They will
appear on Chase
in the coming months.

As the collaboration grows, more of Chase’s 60 million customers will
have access to the program, which will include the ability for customers
with Chase Pay to secure coveted reservations and pre-pay for dining
experiences through Tock,
the exclusive reservation booking provider for Chase Pay, The French
Laundry and Per Se.

“I am pleased to launch a new partnership with JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Relationships are key to our restaurants and working with Chase Sapphire
to build experiences will continue to expand on our ability to make
memories for our guests,” said Chef Thomas Keller.
