We are the UK’s leading independent hospitality provider within the workplace.
Employing over 9000 people in 700 locations around the UK, Scotland, Ireland and Europe, the key to our success is our passion for creating delicious food from the freshest, locally sourced ingredients and serving them to our customers with a warm welcome and service professionalism.
Working closely with our clients, we focus on developing and coaching our teams to ensure a safe and caring environment is created where hospitality, sustainability and ‘best practice’ are championed and benchmarked.
The secret sauce to our success is in the relentless commitment we have in developing our people. For this reason, our industry-leading Barista, Chef and Leadership Academies together with Apprenticeships, Graduate Management Scheme and sponsorship of the Gold Scholarship Award continue to ensure we are providing access to the best learning and development opportunities possible.
