Chartwells wins six-year deal at Brooklands College

Compass Group‘s education arm Chartwells has won a six-year deal with Brooklands College (pictured) in Surrey.

Worth nearly £3m, the contract sees one operator provide catering, vending and hospitality services across both the Weybridge and Ashford (Middlesex) campuses.

The college has around 6,000 full-time and part-time students, the majority of whom are based at the larger Weybridge campus where Chartwells is investing in a new food court concept featuring a number of in-house brands including submarine rolls counter Mondo Subs, fruit and salad bar Goodness me, TouJours for fresh baguettes and Trattoria for pizzas.

Chartwells has also launched a work-experience partnership with the Hospitality and Tourism faculty, providing student placements within the caterer's facilities at the college and potentially in its wider business.

Tony Byrne, managing director of Chartwells, said that the new food court aimed to reflect student tastes in the home and on the high street following in-depth research into the students' eating behaviours.

He added: "Brooklands College has an established reputation for its catering and hospitality courses and being able to provide valuable work experience to its students through Chartwells and the wider Compass business means that we can share our expertise with the talent of the future."

Andy Williams, the interim principal of Brooklands College, said: "The food and drink options on offer will give our students much more variety and choice and I am sure the student placement opportunities will be snapped up by our hospitality students'.

The news of this contract win, which begins this month, follows hot on the heels of Chartwells' six year, £21m deal with Newport City Council.
