Sodexo has extended its 50-year partnership with Tettenhall College, an independent, co-educational day and boarding school near Wolverhampton, for a further 10 years.
The new contract, which has a value of £6 million, will see Independents by Sodexo continue to deliver the catering and hospitality services for over 500 boys and girls aged between two and eighteen years. In addition to a refreshed menu being introduced, a brand new dining hall is being created which will improve modernise the food services and create a welcoming environment for the school community to relax and enjoy their breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Sodexo introduced a refreshed menu in September which was developed to encourage the adoption of a healthy, balanced, sustainable diet and has been designed to spark a genuine interest in the food they are eating. Items on the menu include global dishes such as charred piri-piri chicken thigh, blackened vegetables, Portuguese-style savoury rice, chipotle mayo, crispy citrus slaw – but also old favourites, with pork sausage toad in the hole, champ potatoes, glazed carrots, roasted brassicas and onion gravy.
In addition to providing the school meals, Sodexo’s 15-strong team will also provide hospitality services at the school including special dinners for the headmaster’s guests and parents of the College.
Steve Hawkins, Managing Director, schools for Sodexo UK & Ireland said: “Extending our long-lasting partnership with Tettenhall College for another 10 years is a true statement of the outstanding work our team has delivered over the years, especially our chefs who continue to inspire our customers with their delicious and nutritious dishes.
“At Sodexo we firmly believe that it all starts with the everyday and we are committed to delivering school catering services that bring the whole school community together, providing the school and parents with the confidence that the children are receiving healthy, nutritious and sustainable meals.”
Planned, proactive maintenance is a keystone of every FM strategy. However, with current cost constraints, there are many demands on Facilities Managers’ maintenance budgets. When it comes to drainage and plumbing, however, the expense of repairing blockages or dealing with flooding could vastly exceed the cost of preventative maintenance.
Given your role as an FM Professional, we would love to hear your views, challenges & experiences, and opinions on drainage & plumbing within the workplace.
