Food by Dish achieves record Christmas period

London event caterer Food by Dish has seen a record 22% revenue increase for Christmas parties this year, compared with the same period in December 2014.

The company said it has rounded off a successful year by catering for 112 Christmas parties throughout December, including 4,605 covers in one week. Turnover for the month of December was just shy of £500,000.

This year Food by Dish has won supplier contracts with Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, west London and the Science Museum, taking their portfolio to 25 venues.

It continues to cater for capital locations including the Natural History Museum, Banqueting House and Tobacco Dock London.

Hannah Flood, sales and marketing director (pictured) said: "We love collaborating with our venues; being able to work with such an array of unique, historic venues allows us to cater for all manner of events and in some spectacular surroundings throughout the year."

Stand out events for the year included a pop-up restaurant on Valentine's Day at Madame Tussauds and catering for 330 celebrities for the Attitude Awards at Banqueting House in October.

Food by Dish also featured on screen in Michel Roux Jr's Channel 4 programme Kitchen Impossible in a section teaching some of the candidates about event catering.

Flood added: "This year we targeted bigger and more prestigious events meaning our revenue and profit margins were higher, so it's great to see the hard work, creativity and dedication of our team rewarded with our most successful year as a business. We have some big plans for next year and we're looking forward to expanding further into 2016."
