Skelmersdale-based contract caterer Mellors Catering Services have gained their 200th contract catering site.
The family-run business that celebrated its 21st birthday last year now has catering contracts in over 200 education and business and industry sites across the North of England.
As part of a planned growth strategy, the company increased its sites by 37% in the last 24 months and has further ambitious plans to double in size within five years. In order to do this, Mellors Catering Services has invested heavily in specialist staff and IT equipment alongside processes to aid the success it is seeing.
A delighted Tony Trainor, Chief Operating Officer at Mellors Catering Services said: “This is a great September start for us to have smashed through the landmark 200 number of sites which is a combination of great retention rates and winning several new site contracts”.
He continued “We have had an amazing 18 months – winning the prestigious national contract caterer of the year award 2017, recently getting through to the BIBA’s awards finals in 3 categories and now having over 200 sites to our name”.
“It comes down to passion, hard work, great staff and planning and it just re-iterates to us and our customers that we are the First Choice Contract Caterer in the North”.
