Smart Hospitality and Angela Hartnett win Olympic Hospitality Centre contract

Smart Hospitality and Angela Hartnett have struck Olympic gold in the second round, with a contract to cater at the Olympic Hospitality Centre (OHC).

The OHC will be a temporary hospitality facility for London 2012 marketing partners and their guests, situated centrally in the Olympic Park.

Smart and Hartnett have collaborated on a London 2012 tender before. Earlier this year, Caterersearch reported that the partnership had worked with Create (part of the Concerto Group) on a bid to provide hospitality at the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and The Olympic Partner (TOP) sponsorship.

The contract was awarded to Austrian firm Do & Co.

Hartnett, the first female to pick up the Catey Chef award, began collaborating with Smart Hospitality in January when the caterer took over the contract to operate the restaurant at the Whitechapel Gallery, after the incumbent operator Vacherin pulled out.

More recently the collaboration has worked on a private preview of the new Bentley Continental at the Kensington Palace Orangery.
