Holroyd Howe wins Bromsgrove school meal deal

Holroyd Howe, the independent education catering brand of WSH, has announced a new £2m-a-year contract with Bromsgrove School in Worcestershire.

The win comes amid a period of growth for the business, which saw annual revenues grow from £18m to £45m in three years.

The success has been credited to managing director Ronan Harte, who reportedly focused on creating a strong growth strategy. He also oversaw a shuffle of the company's executive team, recently appointing industry specialists, Claire Long, as sales director, and Chris Pearce and Matthew Went as operations director.

Harte commented: "We recognise the importance of having a robust and dynamic operational support structure to maintain our low schools to operations managers ratio throughout our growth, so as to continue to guarantee service levels and customer satisfaction."

Peter Clague, head master of Bromsgrove School, welcomed the way that Holroyd Howe embraced his school's culture, adding: "They are producing meals that mirror the school's reputation for flair and innovation. Equally exciting is their willingness not just to serve our students, but to educate them as well."

Holroyd Howe founder, Nick Howe, added: "We hope to build on the effervescent dining room culture at Bromsgrove which is akin to the schools' very strong House System - a key strength of the pastoral provision at Bromsgrove."
