Elior awarded £35m Everything Everywhere contract

Elior has scooped a massive deal worth about £35m to provide catering and hospitality services at all the sites of Everything Everywhere, the joint venture between telecom networks T-Mobile and Orange.

The contract award comes 17 months after BaxterStorey snaffled a one-year deal with T-Mobile from long-term incumbents CH&Co, while Elior had recently won the Orange business.

At the time it was widely speculated that the merged phone businesses would ultimately look to source their catering from a single supplier.

The five-year deal will see Elior operate the staff restaurants, coffee bars and hospitality for about 9,000 Everything Everywhere employees, Caterer and Hotelkeeper has learned.

"It's a significant win for Elior," said one industry insider. "Just what it needs after a period last year in which it didn't appear to perform as well as it would like."

It is understood that the French caterer's plan to provide a bespoke regional offer at each of the 15 sites nationwide, including head office and all call centres, as well an emphasis on health and well-being, were key drivers in the decision to award it the contract.

The consolidated contract is expected to start early December.
