Catering and events company Food Show has won a five-year, £2.25m contract with Chiswick House & Gardens to cater for the London venue’s private events.
The appointment will see Food Show develop the site's corporate, weddings and private events business, and coincides with plans to launch a new event space in 2021.
The third Earl of Burlington designed the Roman-style Palladian villa in the 18th century, while the gardens are understood to have been the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement.
Jay Burgesson, commercial director at Food Show, said: “We have been an approved supplier at Chiswick House & Gardens for eight years and we are thrilled to be integrating our formidable teams.”
Sam Glenister-Batey, head of commercial activity at Chiswick House & Gardens Trust, added: "Food Show shares our dedication for delivering great events and going above and beyond to do so. They are extremely passionate about Chiswick House and Gardens which comes across to every client and did to us throughout this process. This coupled with Food Show's creativity for producing innovative menus and excellent customer service makes for a great partnership."
Food Show was co-founded by chief executive Andrew Gosling in 1987 and other clients include the V&A and the Tower of London.
