Gather & Gather, the contract catering division of strategic outsourcing Mitie Group, has boosted revenue to €12m from contracts in Ireland, with a further €8m in annual sales expected to be announced in the coming year.
Gather & Gather first introduced its service to Ireland in September last year, and already claims to be providing over 4,500 hot meals, 3,000 specialty coffees and 450 sandwiches to corporate clients every day.
Customers include Sky, Primark, LinkedIn, Survey Monkey, Ding and Nitro.
“Our offer has to be the right fit for the clients we work with, so there is a big emphasis on customer engagement. The food and drinks we provide have a strategic role to play in how these dynamic workplaces operate,” said Alan Russell, director of operations in Ireland.
“The reaction to the Gather & Gather model has been brilliant and we are looking forward to even more success in the next 12 months.”
Providing quality food is viewed by customers as a strategic competitive advantage as employee satisfaction, retention and productivity improve, Gather & Gather believes.
“We knew the Irish market was one we could make a mark in and it’s wonderful to see so many organisations buying into the values of Gather & Gather, our commitment to great food and the strength of our business model,” said Allister Richards, managing director of Gather & Gather.
