Daventry kitchen house Catering Design Group (CDG) has bagged a quartet of projects that are set to earn it almost £1.2m.
The company recently celebrated 20 years in business and gained ISO 9001 accreditation, prompting it to re-brand the business to clearly define its offering and services.
Its efforts have clearly paid off, with contracts in the education and agricultural sectors — as well as two deals with catering company Searcys — ensuring the year has got off to a good start.
The deals involving Searcys total £750,000 and will see CDG manage kitchen and dining projects at Southend Airport and Blenheim Palace.
“Blenheim will be in three phases – phase one being the Water Terrace Cafe, which includes a main kitchen, servery and the addition of a new Champagne Bar, due for completion at the beginning of March,” explains Philip Howard, managing director of CDG.
“Phase two will incorporate the Pleasure Gardens Cafe, a family orientated part of the palace with opening scheduled for the Easter break, whilst phase three will see the conversion of a shop into a ‘Grab and Go’ Catering facility in time for summer.”
Additionally, CDG will design and build cafe, kitchen and butchery facilities at the Workshop Arrow Farm in a contract worth £295,000, and oversee a dining area expansion valued at £225,000.
“We are more than just a design company,” insists Howard. “We design, create and build for front and back of house, with each project varying dramatically in size and complexity, ranging from equipment replacement or simple modifications, through to the complete design and installation of a new restaurant, bar or catering facility.”
