Aramark to serve three more years with new Old Bailey catering deal

Aramark has extended its catering and hospitality contract at the Old Bailey for a further three years in a deal estimated to be worth £1.2m.

The new contract will commence in September and will see Aramark operate restaurants at the criminal court for a number of customer groups, including judges, barristers, jurors and visitors.

The Old Bailey, the commonly-used name for the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales, is owned and managed by Aramark's client, the City of London Corporation. Aramark first began providing services there in 2005.

Simon Palfreeman, Aramark's client relationship director - judicial, said: "The Old Bailey is a national icon and is recognised globally as a symbol of British justice.

"We are privileged to have provided food service there for the past eight years and excited that we have been retained for a further three. As always, we will work closely with the City of London Corporation to ensure we meet the varying needs of the Old Bailey's users, from judges to visitors."

The Old Bailey dates back to the 16th century but opened for business in its current form in 1907. It currently has 18 court rooms and is undergoing a comprehensive refurbishment as part of a 10-year modernisation project.
