Amadeus wins its first fixed-site catering contract in London

Birmingham-based caterer Amadeus has picked up its first fixed-site foodservice contract in London, with a five-year deal with the London Borough of Camden.

Estimated to be worth around £5m in income, the new contract will see the NEC Group-owned business provide catering at the new public services and council offices building in King's Cross.

Amadeus will invest £250,000 to build and equip two cafés, which it will then manage. One café will be for public use and located next to a new library, and the other will be for council staff.

Kevin Watson, managing director of Amadeus, said: "The King's Cross area is undergoing major changes and we are very pleased to have been successful in securing a contract in one of the capital's up-and-coming districts.

"We look forward to gaining more business in the area and will be seeking out further growth opportunities."

This latest agreement follows a series of high profile contract wins for the caterer, including a £7m deal with Cadbury World, a £1m contract with Birmingham Town Hall and a £2m deal with Birmingham Library.

Paul Thandi, chief executive of the NEC Group, added: "Amadeus is one of the growth businesses within the NEC Group and I am pleased with the refocusing of that business together with the impressive run of recent wins secured by the new team.

"London Borough of Camden is our first fixed-site contract in London and represents a significant step forward for Amadeus and the group. We will be working hard to secure more new business in the area."
