Celebrating its 15th year in business this year, it is forecasting an annual turnover of £27m for 2017.
With a portfolio of 95 clients, employing 720 staff nationwide, its latest contract was a three-year contract extension to provide catering services to the 650 staff at InterContinental Hotels Group's (IHG) UK corporate headquarters in Denham, Buckinghamshire.

Andrew Wilson, co-founder of Wilson Vale, said: "The skills, commitment and passion of our teams have continued to drive our business forward throughout last year and we are pleased to report another positive set of results. The principles laid down at the formation of this company - to look after our customers and be the very best at what we do - remain at the heart of the business throughout 2017 and beyond.
"After working for over 15 years with IHG, to have been given the opportunity to tender for and win this prestigious contract is a huge accolade for our operations team, and it shows our ability to grow in groups."
