Contract caterer Restaurants at Work's newly-formed education division has picked up its first school dinners contract in a deal worth £360,000 in total turnover.
The new division, Restaurants at School, will run the school dinners service at Sheen Mount Primary School in East Sheen, Richmond, in a three-year deal worth £120,000 in annual turnover. The contract began in January after the school's kitchen was refurbished.
A team of four headed by a chef manager produce a daily menu of, where possible, locally sourced produce at the school.
Stephen Pilkington, business development director of Restaurants at Work, said: "It has been part of our business strategy for some time to move onto the schools market and we are delighted to have secured our first contract".
Restaurants at Work listed on the PLUS Market last year via its parent company Bright Futures Group.
