Catering Insight’s Service & Maintenance Provider of the Year Award category, sponsored by the First Choice Group, was open to both specialist service companies and distributors that operate dedicated service businesses.
This category was a tight vote, with just five votes separating the top two, but Lakes Catering Maintenance came out triumphant.
The distributor underwent a major rebrand this year, developing a corporate identity that is more inclusive of the company’s entire service proposition.
A revamped website has also been created, detailing the extent of its offering and its successes serving local restaurants, schools and hotels in Cumbria and North Lancashire.
The new look has been accompanied by an investment in enhanced design and installation capabilities, which are complementary to the flagship kitchen maintenance and repair work that the business has built its foundations on.
Lakes’ MD Leigh Howard picked up the trophy and commented on the win: “It’s amazing. We’re really chuffed with that. I thought ‘no way are we going to win’, but here we are!”
