Noel Mahony and Wendy Bartlett

Westbury Street Holdings (WSH), the company behind a number of foodservice brands operating in the UK and Europe, has acquired UK-based boutique caterer, Bartlett Mitchell.

The national and local restrictions enforced due to the Covid-19 pandemic have had a material impact on the workplace catering sector. WSH offers a robust proposition, creating a sustainable platform for growth.

The acquisition will see Bartlett Mitchell , which was founded in 2000 by Wendy Bartlett and Ian Mitchell, continue to operate under its own independent operational structure.

Wendy Bartlett and her senior team will all remain in their posts.

Speaking about the acquisition, Bartlett said: “Bartlett Mitchell and BaxterStorey bring together market-leading training and people development expertise, talented teams and a strong focus on sustainability. Our BM family will benefit from greater career opportunities and increased financial security due to the company’s presence in multiple sectors, and their growing presence across Europe.

“Our clients will gain from our combined resources. With the workplace changing, this is a pivotal moment for our sector and this positions us ready and committed to seize this opportunity.”

Noel Mahony, Co-Chief Executive, BaxterStorey and Director, WSH added: “I am delighted to welcome Wendy and the Bartlett Mitchell family to our business. Our industry is facing its toughest challenge to date and our combined resources will enable us to accelerate innovation and create a compelling food hospitality offer, building an even more resilient business. It’s an increasingly challenging time for the sector but together we are stronger.”
