Sodexo Prestige wins £30m contract to run food and beverage at the Montcalm hotel

Sodexo Prestige - the event hospitality and fine-dining arm of Sodexo - has announced its first five-star hotel contract, with a £30m deal to run the food and beverage operation at the Montcalm, London.

The 10-year contract will see the group providing all dining, bar, restaurant and in-room services to the 150-bedroom hotel, located near Marble Arch.

As part of the contract, a new 90-seat restaurant and bar with private dining room called the Grill has just launched at the hotel.

Overseen by executive chef Andrew Ives, the restaurant will feature dishes such as foie gras torchon on toasted brioche with honey and pickled vegetables; grilled cutlet of English rose veal, fricassee of peas and potatoes; and spatchcock corn-fed chicken for two with a herb, lemon and garlic baste.

David Johnson, Sodexo Prestige leisure and sport managing director, said that it was exciting news for Sodexo Prestige as it was the company's first partnership with a five-star hotel.

"It is a great opportunity for us to showcase our abilities in the international hotel market and demonstrate the five-star service we can provide," he said. "Adding the Montcalm hotel to our portfolio will strengthen our business significantly in this market sector."

Ramesh Arora, the hotel's managing director, said that Sodexo Prestige had secured the contract because of the group's proven track record of high-end catering and understanding of its clients' business.
