Lindley Catering acquires Heathcotes Outside

Lindley Catering and Heathcotes Outside have merged to create a sports stadium and events catering specialist with a turnover of £40m.

It follows the acquisition of Heathcotes Outside by venture capital firm Sovereign Capital, which also backed the management buy-out of Lindley Catering last July.

Lindley Catering, which was set up 38 years ago, operates more than 50 contracts for cricket, football and rugby clubs as well as leisure groups such as the Malvern Theatre Group and the Royal Agricultural Showground in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.

Heathcote's Outside was created 10 years ago by Michelin-starred chef/restaurateur Paul Heathcote, who becomes an executive director at Lindley as part of the deal.
