Contract caterer Wilson Vale has gained £1m of new business since the beginning of its new financial year, the company has revealed.
The solid start to 2015 puts it on course to achieve its annual turnover goal of £22m this year. Last year it grew sales by 11% to £20m.
The Ashby-based outfit most recently gained a one-year rolling contract with leading global media communications group Dentsu Aegis Network at its UK HQ in London. A team of 11 Wilson Vale staff now caters for 1,400 staff on-site, with services including breakfast, lunch, all day Grab ’n’ Go and extensive hospitality.
Andrew Wilson, co-founder and managing director of Wilson Vale (pictured above), said the latest deal was a “strategically important one” for the business as it strengthens its presence in the London market.
“The fact that Wilson Vale is an owner-managed business with a very transparent and ethical approach was a key factor in our appointment and we look forward to working in close partnership with our new client during this exciting period of growth for both organisations,” he said.
The company has also recently commenced catering contracts with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in Coventry, where a team of three Wilson Vale staff provide a breakfast, lunch and hospitality service for 250 RICS employees on site.
This is Wilson Vale’s 13th year of trading and Wilson insists the company is pleased with its record of retaining and developing clients. “We remain a relatively small organisation in a large market place but we are gaining a strong reputation and this is impacting positively on our business,” he said.
