Harbour & Jones (H&J) has bagged the catering contract for three Selfridges' sites across the UK worth £10m, strengthening the company's regional presence.
The new five-year deal is estimated by industry experts to be worth in the region of £2m a year in turnover and will see the independent caterer deliver in-house dining to more than 7,000 Selfridges employees across the Birmingham, Manchester Trafford and London stores.
In addition to breakfast, lunch and supper services for staff, H&J will provide hospitality services for store visitors and guests.
Patrick Harbour, owner and director at Harbour & Jones described it as a "significant win" for the company.
He said: "The Selfridges contract increases our presence in the Midlands and the North of the UK and I'm happy to report that we are already in discussions with a number of prospective clients in these areas."
H&J said it will work with Selfridges to carry out a comprehensive planning and refurbishment programme in a bid to make the staff restaurant facility one of the best in Europe, with changes planned for the design and layout of the dining rooms.
The food offer at all three stores will feature seasonal produce and locally sourced ingredients.
"We are passionate about food and this comes through in everything we do, from our high customer service levels to the menus we create," added Harbour.
