Catering for a Multi-tenanted Commercial Site
Hertfordshire office location Breakspear Park has appointed The Balanced Food Co. to provide catering services across its multi-tenanted site.
The two-year deal will see the company provide an artisanal cafe, offering both full-service catering and grab and go options.
Post lockdown, full restaurant service will commence for the building’s 1,300 inhabitants.
The contract comes as part of a collaboration between Breakspear Park and food and facilities management consultancy, Neller Davies, which worked with the commercial location to identify a catering solution which will increase participation through better value, quality and service and encourage better wellbeing from a bespoke fresh food offer.
Neller Davies developed a contractual structure to ensure both risk and commercial benefits are shared equally across the lifecycle of the deal. The solution is based on a highly collaborative business relationship in which both parties are equally committed to each other’s success. The end result is expected to be improved service, reduced costs and added value for both parties.
The Balanced Food Co. is headed up by Ian Summers, who has trained as a chef in some of Europe’s major hotels and restaurants before moving into senior management positions and directorships, and Mark McCann, who has built an extensive track record in hospitality management for over 30 years. The company has plans to expand its customer base in London and the south.
Julian Fris, director, Neller Davies, comments: “The team at Breakspear were keen to introduce an offer which provides good value food and service, and a collaborative approach to success. Balanced Food Co have already demonstrated their commitment to this by significantly increasing output at the site.”
Fay Hewing, Breakspear facilities manager says: “The catering offer at Breakspear Park is extremely important for our occupiers working at the park. Our customers want to feel that they are able to get something different from the normal contract catering offer, which still offers good value for money and great taste. Balanced Food Co have provided us with an offer that meets this expectation and we look forward to expanding this in 2021 with them.”
Summers adds: “We are delighted to be partnering with the team at Breakspear Park. To work with an organisation who recognises the importance of nutritious great tasting food enables us to really showcase our food philosophy and engage with our customers in different way. Exciting times ahead for 2021.”
