London caterer Dish has served more than 50,000 people in the year to date as it sees business growth of 20% year on year.
Dish has catered for 300 events so far this year, with a further 80 in the pipeline and 85 enquiries to be converted to the year end.
These include the Activate Sports Awards, the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund, Alice in Wonderland at the Natural History Museum and Top Shop's S/S 2013 Fashion Show.
Managing director Nick James said: "There's a fear within the industry that mid-sized event caterers cannot deliver large numbers or service in-house catering contracts. This year we confounded that myth.
"We now run the restaurant on the London Eye Barracuda, which is growth in the public catering sector for Dish. Plus, since we've moved to Greenwich, we have been able to upscale our production; we can easily produce 2,500 covers for a sit-down dinner, no problem.
"The issue of quality, numbers and ability to diversify isn't there for Dish as we've proven this year.'
Dish is the in-house caterer at No.4 Hamilton Place, HMS President, Thorpe Park and London Eye Barracuda. It is also listed at Tobacco Dock, Roundhouse, Madame Tussauds, Natural History Museum, Old Billingsgate and One Marylebone.
