A New Concept in Workplace Catering

UK contract caterer Talkington Bates has introduced a flexible catering offer to support businesses planning post-Covid=19 returns to the office.


The company’s FLx Catering Solution is a completely flexible offer to help organisations wanting to provide catering as part of their return to work programme but concerned about signing up to long-term contracts and fixed service levels at such an uncertain time.  As well as flexible, it’s innovative, individual and transparent.


Its offer includes quarterly or biannual contracts; a three, four or five day-a-week service offering with variable service levels to accommodate changing headcounts; fixed overhead operating costs; reduced service or annual closures in the summer and Christmas breaks; and flexible payment terms. At the same time, Talkington Bates will continue to use local suppliers and focus on providence and high levels of sustainability.

Paul Bates, co-founder and managing director, explains: 

“Providing catering as part of the return to work programme will reduce the need for people to risk going into external food outlets while enabling the much-needed collaboration with colleagues in a safe space.

“FLx will help organisations provide an essential food offer to their people while being completely flexible in terms of contracts and head count. It offers companies a pick n mix of requirements to fit their individual needs.  We’ve supported our clients through this pandemic and we will continue to do all we can to facilitate a cost-effective return to the workplace.”
