Express Cafes has won a mobile catering contract extension at Twickenham Stadium worth £5m

The new three-year deal will see Express Cafes provide up to 35 mobile catering units exclusively for the stadium's rugby matches and concerts, including major events such as the QBE Internationals, RBS Six Nations, the Aviva Premiership Final and the Marriot London Sevens.

Hospitality food and public bar services on site is managed and operated by the Twickenham Experience team, a joint venture between the RFU and Compass Group, which Express Cafes will continue to work alongside.

Express Cafes will introduce credit card transactions at some of its units for the first time and will also be supplying and managing ATM machines at the venue.

"Twickenham Stadium is the largest dedicated rugby union venue in the world so this is very exciting for us," commented Alan Wiggett, managing director of Express Cafes. "It is our aim to make attractive food and drink options easily accessible to spectators at all the venues where we work. I am pleased that we are now able to offer extra services to facilitate quick and easy transactions at the Home of England Rugby."

Chris Morris, managing director of Twickenham Experience said: "We have been working with Express Cafes for 10 years now and have a very strong working partnership. We look forward to seeing the new systems for credit card payments in place. It is all part of giving our many guests the best possible experience when they visit our stadium."

Food trailers at Twickenham Stadium will include Food Glorious Food brands such as FGF Burger Co and FGF Fish & Chip Co and FGF Carvery Co as well as Herta Hotdogs and Costa Coffee.

Express Cafes was acquired in 2011 by Central Catering Services.
