Elior UK scoops catering deal at The Whitaker 

Contract caterer, Elior, has landed a three-year deal at The Whitaker Museum & Art Gallery (The Whitaker) in Rossendale, for the provision of a variety of café, restaurant, kiosk, event and meeting catering services.

Elior secured the contract because of its creativity and innovative plans to develop educational food offerings to accompany the museum’s calendar of exhibitions. Elior will serve local produce across The Whitaker’s 65-seat restaurant, outdoor kiosk and variety of event spaces. Partnerships include a collaboration with local North-West favourite ice cream, Fredericks.

Elior will welcome 10 new employees to The Whitaker site including a general manager, head chef and team of kitchen assistants.

Craig Stewart, Divisional Managing Director from Elior said: “This new partnership shows the scope of Elior’s bespoke offerings and how food and drink can be an integral part of The Whitaker Museum & Art Gallery’s offering. We love working with exciting and dynamic sites, and this partnership fits that bill perfectly. I know we will achieve a lot together.”

Gaynor Seville, Creative Director at The Whitaker Museum & Art Gallery, said: “Positive customer experience is a priority for us at The Whitaker, and we welcome the changes that Elior will bring to our bar and kitchen offer. This new chapter in our ongoing development will see our first-class museum and art gallery sit alongside an exciting brand-new menu, events offer, and a team of dedicated and professional staff that will help our customers have the best experience possible. I’m really looking forward to welcoming back familiar faces, and inviting a new wave of customers, to The Whitaker Museum and Art Gallery.”
