Independent contract caterer Wilson Vale reported a 20% increase in turnover in 2017 as it announced a contract win with healthcare and research company Bionical.
Last year saw Wilson Vale's turnover exceed £30m for the first time, with eight contracts won during the 12-month period including several extensions to existing business.
Andrew Wilson, co-founder of Wilson Vale, said: "Our consistent and careful approach is clearly working, and we are pleased to report a very positive set of results.
"We believe that the outlook for 2018 is also positive, although we are not expecting the same level of growth as 2017 as all the stars aligned perfectly last year. This year, we will have one off costs for our new, highly specified 8,000sq ft corporate headquarters in Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire. We feel that this investment is the right thing to do for the longer-term strength and reputation of the business.
"What is important is that we stick to our chosen path of retaining our culture, our focus on food and people, and of course, looking after our clients with complete individual focus."
Wilson Vale will provide catering services for Bionical's 120 staff as its new waterside headquarters in Derbyshire.
Graham McIntosh, CEO of Bionical, said. "Working with Wilson Vale was an easy decision to make. Their passion for food and their focus on service is a perfect fit for Bionical. Having food that is made using fresh, healthy ingredients is a huge benefit for our employees and our clients that come to see us at our Global HQ."
Wilson Vale, which has a portfolio of 95 clients, mainly within the corporate sector, independent education and conferencing, has forecast annual turnover of £33m for 2018.
Wilson and co-founder Carolyne Vale were featured within The Caterer's Top 100 most powerful people in hospitality last week, listed at number 46.
Wilson said: "Carolyne and I are both surprised and honoured to be on such an esteemed list of industry greats. It is wonderful that our values and standards have been recognised in this way."
