Full house: more than 160,000 supporters are expected to visit Twickenham for the championships.
Catering for The Six Nations' Return to Twickenham
Over the course of two NatWest Six Nations matches at Twickenham, Levy UK has developed a wider culinary offering and introduced new retail catering concepts to bring a taste of ‘home’ for the 160,000 plus supporters enjoying the games in London during the Championship.
As well as hearty favourites including grilled buffalo burgers, two limited edition 6 Nations pasties have been created by West Cornwall Pasty Co, featuring ‘The Welsh’ and ‘The Irish’, to commemorate England’s two competitive home matches this year. Just as well, because more than 5,500 pasties are estimated to be sold across the two games.
Retail concessions include The Rickshaw Club, serving traditional Indian street food with a twist; Fuorvito Pizza, handmade and cooked in a wood-fired pizza oven; Meat the chef, succulent buttermilk fried chicken burgers; and Raclette Melt, the place to be for cheese lovers looking for the best melted cheese dishes.
A large team of Levy colleagues will deliver catering for the events, while innovations such as Click and Collect are available for guests to beat the queues. The app is available from Apple and Android providers, and allows visitors to the stadium to pre-order drinks for collection and pick up at a designated bar.
Nils Braude, Twickenham’s Catering and C&E Director said: “Over the years Twickenham has been able to adapt and improve the food offer in the stadium, to ensure that not only all of our fans are catered for but that we are delivering an innovative and exciting offer each and every match. Over the NatWest 6 Nations series this approach has proven to deliver great quality for our customers.”
Levy began as a family business and these values remain at our heart in every site across the globe. Our story began in 1978 in the USA. Brothers Larry and Mark Levy took a chance and expanded beyond their real estate roots and invested in a classic Chicago deli. To create authentic, homemade flavours, they brought in their mother Eadie to share family recipes and her passion for creating an amazing family feel to mealtimes. The quality and personality of the business spoke for itself, which is why it has grown into a multi-national trailblazer for the food service sector. Every day, Levy reaches people across the US with tantalising food experiences at over 100 venues and the hottest diary dates, including the Super Bowl, the Grammys, US Open Tennis Tournament, NBA and NHL All-Star Games and the World Series. We make sure that we replicate these family values in the UK, and pride ourselves on innovating and challenging the UK hospitality sector. Visit us at www.levyrestaurants.co.uk.
