July 29, 2013
Sodexo Prestige has been announced as the preferred lead caterer for Ascot Racecourse after signing a five-year agreement.
The announcement came after a competitive tender process and the racecourse’s CEO was confident Sodexo, who have provided their services to Ascot since 1998, was the right choice.
Charles Barnett, Ascot CEO said: “Sodexo has been providing catering services at Ascot since 1998 and, in spite of impressive bids from other competitors, has demonstrated that it remains best equipped to provide the unique quality and range of catering expected by visitors to Ascot.
“We are very excited about working with them in this new long-term joint venture.”
Chris John, Managing Director, Sodexo Prestige UK & Ireland, added: “Winning a contract of this scale with one of the world’s most prestigious sporting venues is incredibly exciting for me and the whole team.
“We are delighted to be entering into a new era of partnership and innovation with Charles and his team at Ascot Racecourse.”
