Mitie reports 45% growth in catering business

Mitie saw its catering business grow by 45% in the last financial year following a string of new business and contract retentions, the company has announced.

The facilities management firm secured £14m of new business in the past 12 months, consisting of both stand-alone catering contracts and integrated FM deals.

Mitie delivers café, restaurant, retail and hospitality services, predominantly to clients within the private sector. New contracts include Diageo, WorldPay, the Office of Fair Trading, and the Cumbrian Collaboration, which incorporates Sellafield and the NDA.

The team has also expanded its relationship with Osborne Clark as well as retained and extended existing contracts with Hallmark Cards, the Brewery and DAC Beachcroft LLP.

Managing director Allister Richards, who was previously managing director England & Wales at Sodexo Prestige, said the rest of 2012 looked promising.

"We believe the marketplace is ready for something new, hence our approach that combines the agility and flexibility of the smaller niche contractor with the resource and stability of a FTSE 250 company," he added.
