Wilson Vale expands portfolio with IM Group contract

Wilson Vale has gained a catering contract with Midlands-based automotive and property investment firm IM Group, valued at £400,000 in annual turnover.

The new contract opened on 22 July when a team of six Wilson Vale staff started a catering service for 250 staff at IM Group's new corporate headquarters in Solihull, which houses the group's companies including International Motors, Isuzu UK and Subaru UK.

The Ashby-based independent caterer will provide a breakfast, lunch, coffee bar and extensive hospitality services at the new site.

Andrew Wilson, co-founder of Wilson Vale, said: "IM Group's on-site staff restaurant, ‘the Bridge' is a very special facility. The overall design and finish show the thought and care that have gone into ensuring that their staff and visitors have a welcoming, relaxed and homely hub to eat and meet in during the working day.

"We look forward to working closely with our new client to support their vision and to ensure that our catering service enhances the working day for all on site."

Andrew Edmiston, managing director of IM Group, said: "As a company we have put a lot of effort into the design and construction of our new HQ. From the outset, we knew that we wanted a catering provider at the top of their game, producing excellent food and great hospitality.

"The Wilson Vale team will become an integral part of our business and work with us to maintain and enhance our inclusive and positive culture both inside and outside of our group."
