Husband-and-wife team Andrew Wilson and Carolyne Vale co-founded Wilson Vale in 2002 with £50,000, a laptop and some spare space above the garage at their Derbyshire home. Operating within the business and industry, private education and conference venue sectors across the UK, Wilson Vale has largely eschewed the bright lights of the highly competitive London market in order to carve out a niche as a key regional player. Annual turnover increased by 14.7% year-on-year to push past £25m for the first time in the financial year ending 31 December 2016, while pre-tax profit topped £2m. The caterer says it expects revenues to reach £33m by the end of 2018. Of the company's 275 suppliers, 65% are family-owned.
