Good news – we have recently secured £2.5m worth of new contracts

October 17th 2017

We are celebrating three new contract wins, worth a total of £4million as well as a fantastic contract retention following a 100% sales uplift.

Global specialist finance company, The Falcon Group, who recently moved to their newly renovated site on Lombard Street, the European Banking Authority and the International Institute of Anti-Ageing, have all put their trust in us. We pride ourselves on offering a tailored boutique service.

The three different wins highlight our versatile approach to catering with each business presenting unique demands.

Restaurant standard food

Offering restaurant standard food for The Falcon Group’s staff members, beautifully presented, plated dishes are the order of the day with the food complementing the office’s hotel-style aesthetics.

Meanwhile the fantastic location of the European Banking Authority on the 46th floor of One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, means demands are slightly different – focussing on hospitality catering for large events.

The International Institute of Anti-Ageing (iiaa) a leading provider of business services and prestige brands to the UK and Ireland Professional Skincare industry, was gained after a competitive tender process. The catering services will include employees of JVCKenwood and Casio who are situated in the same location as the iiaa and also enjoy the staff and visitor restaurant in a custom designed environment intended to make the most of its light and airy setting.

High quality, fresh ingredients for nutritious and wholesome food

We have committed a new catering offer to meet with the needs and values of iiaa assuring high quality, fresh ingredients for nutritious and wholesome food. Early indications show that uptake has increased by 20% month on month.

Janice Talkington, Joint Managing Director of Talkington Bates, commented:

“We have always been committed to providing the absolute highest standard of catering and these recent contract wins are testament to this. Our insistence on bespoke solutions has a proven track record and by continuing to put our clients at the heart of everything we do, I’m confident that we can continue to deliver innovative solutions to all types of businesses.”

In addition to the new wins, Talkington Bates has successfully retained its contract with cutting-edge pharmaceutical manufacturer Bio Products Laboratory following a hugely successful three years which saw improved loyalty and perception of the catering offer plus sales increase of over 100%.

Joseph Fennell, Head of Site Engineering, BPL said:

“Re-awarding the business to Talkington Bates was a really easy choice. Since they took over operations three years ago the results have been fantastic with individuals often commenting on the standard of food provided. We are very much looking forward to developing our relationship with them as we move towards a new phase of improvements and customer engagement.”

Janice concludes:

“It has been a really rewarding few months for us at Talkington Bates. It’s always nice to retain business and win new contracts and we look forward to the exciting challenges the business faces as our portfolio grows.”
