Mount Charles launches outside events drinks division

Belfast caterer Mount Charles Group has launched a new division, Mount Charles Drink, to service bar and beverage contracts for external events.

The news follows the company's success in securing a three-year beverage contract with Down Royal racecourse in Lisburn, which will boost the firm's revenue by around £400,000 per annum.

Mount Charles specialises in foodservice, cleaning, security and vending and has held the beverage contract for Kingspan Stadium, home of Ulster Rugby, since July 2013.

Earlier this year the firm also won the beverage contract for one of Nothern Ireland's biggest outdoor sporting events - the international North West 200 motorcycle road race.

Trevor Annon, chairman and founder of Mount Charles said: "We are delighted to officially add another string to our bow in the form of this new external events beverage division, Mount Charles Drink.

"The catalyst for making the decision to create a dedicated team to beverage and bar contracts was the success of our partnership with Ulster Rugby; there has been a learning curve but I'm pleased to say that we have been able to significantly improve service and efficiency levels there since taking over almost two years ago."

He added: "Winning the contract to supply a bar service at the prestigious Down Royal Racecourse and at a major event such as the North West 200 is testament to our service quality and provides the perfect platform on which to launch the division formally."
