Hertfordshire office site Breakspear Park in Hemel Hempstead has appointed the Balanced Food Co to provide catering services across its multitenanted space.
The two-year deal will see the company provide an artisanal café, offering both full-service catering and grab-and-go options to the building's 1,300 workers.
The Balanced Food Co is headed by Ian Summers, a former director at Graysons Restaurants and sales director for Catermasters, and Mark McCann, who previously worked as an executive chef with Bartlett Mitchell and Compass. The company also plans to expand its customer base in London and the south.
Summers said: "We are delighted to be partnering with the team at Breakspear Park. To work with an organisation thst recognises the importance of nutritious great tasting food enables us to really showcase our food philosophy and engage with our customers in different way."
Fay Hewing, Breakspear facilities manager, added: "The catering offer at Breakspear Park is extremely important for our occupiers working at the park. Our customers want to feel that they are able to get something different from the normal contract catering offer, which still offers good value for money and great taste. Balanced Food Co have provided us with an offer that meets this expectation and we look forward to expanding this in 2021 with them."
Management consultancy Neller Davies worked with Breakspear Park to identify a catering solution.
Julian Fris, director at Neller Davies, said: "The team at Breakspear were keen to introduce an offer which provides good value food and service, and a collaborative approach to success. Balanced Food Co have already demonstrated their commitment to this by significantly increasing output at the site."
