Gather & Gather connect with Vodafone

Mitie's catering business has been appointed by Vodafone UK to deliver food services across its national property portfolio.

The four-and-a-half-year contract will see Gather & Gather serving 9,000 staff members every day across 12 different locations.

The caterer reports that Vodafone reached its decision after an innovative and competitive tender process that pitched it against a number of leading service providers. Gather & Gather says it won by demonstrating how it tailors its food services to individual clients, supported by its vision of bringing food and people together in the workplace. As a result, Vodafone felt that the caterer was ideally placed to support its own aspiration to create inspirational dining spaces for its employees.

Gather & Gather Managing Director Allister Richards commented: “This is a brilliant result for us – it was incredibly hard fought, with the best in the business pushing each other all the way. To come out on top is testament to the quality and depth in our team and the fact that our food, service style, design ethos and culture are a unique and powerful combination in our market.

“We are looking forward to working with Vodafone, and alongside our colleagues who already deliver IFM services, which offers us even more opportunity to make a difference. Everyone’s massively up for it – we can’t wait to get stuck in.”
