Compass Group's guest services business Rapport has won a new three year contract at Tower 42 worth £750,000.
The announcement comes on the back of the caterer's executive dining division Restaurant Associates' (RA) long term-relationship with the iconic City building spanning 10 years.
The new deal will see Rapport provide the tower's 2,500-strong population and 900 daily visitors with ground floor reception and concierge services. The services will be delivered across two sites, at Tower 42 and the adjacent building at 30 Old Broad Street.
Greg Mace, managing director of Rapport, commented: "This an extremely exciting time for both Rapport and Restaurant Associates at Tower 42. We are delighted to bring our personal and intuitive service to Tower 42, creating great first and lasting impressions. We look forward to implementing a seamless service at the main reception desk for all who pass through this iconic London building."
Barry Rushmer, General Manager of Tower 42 added: "Key to this decision is http://www.catererandhotelkeeper.co.uk/Articles/30/1/2012/342114/compass-launches-rapport-division-to-offer-premium-guest-services.htm" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Rapport's] impeccable service quality, dedication to continual improvement through innovation and team engagement and development solutions, which are all impressive strengths."
Earlier this month RA revealed plans to work with celebrated chef Anthony Demetre on a 12-week pop up restaurant from 1 October in the space currently occupied by Gary Rhodes' Rhodes 24.
The temporary venture is expected to be followed up by a permanent new offer from chef-restaurateur Jason Atherton once details are finalised.
