Charlton House has won a £1.7m contract to provide catering at three sites for MBDA Missile Systems, seeing off competition from incumbent operator Artizian.
The three-year deal, which has an option to extend for a further two years, commenced last month and sees the workplace caterer operate at sites in Stevenage, Bristol and Lostock.
Services include the delivery of meals and snacks in a delis, cafés and restaurants that will serve more than 3,000 MBDA staff.
The contract was won after a rigorous competitive tender process during which the CH&Co-owned business said it demonstrated innovation, creativity and an in-depth understanding of MBDA's needs.
CH&Co chief executive Caroline Fry described the MBDA contract win as a "terrific coup".
"This is a highly prestigious gain with a significant number of MBDA employees being fed by Charlton House. In a challenging, highly competitive marketplace, our ability to respond with flexibility and creativity in delivering significant resource efficiencies was key to our success," she said.
"This win cements our growth in the west and the north of England and underscores our belief that delivering quality will always bring success."
