Searcys has been named as sole catering partner at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, the home of the British Academy, following the completion of a two-year multimillion-pound refurbishment.
The high-end caterer saw off competition from four other operators to clinch the three-year deal, which industry insiders estimate to be worth in the region of £900,000 a year.
Searcys will work alongside its client to grow the business, as well as create new menus for breakfast and lunch meetings, canapés, dinners and events. Menus will be seasonal and where possible ingredients will be locally sourced.
Clare Arouche, business development manager at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, said: "We are impressed with the catering and hospitality solutions Searcys will deliver, including sales and revenue maximisation through a dedicated team, hospitality services and menu innovation.
"Searcys' fresh approach to catering coupled with their quality standards is a perfect fit for the venue."
Chris Maddison, sales and marketing director for Searcys, added: "10-11 Carlton House Terrace is a prestigious venue in the heart of St James with an excellent range of event space.
"Our appointment will see us enhance the standard of product and service available to visitors and help realise the commercial potential of the building after its fantastic refurbishment. "
