The Catering Insight Award for Distributor of the Year – South of the UK, sponsored by Hobart, rewarded an outstanding dealer in either the south of England or across Wales.
One of the closest-fought categories this year ended with KCCJ winning 26% of the vote.
The Kent-based distributor has continued to augment it sporting stadium expertise even throughout the pandemic period, with Brentford FC’s new state-of-the-art 17,250-seat community stadium proving to be a jewel in the crown of its 2021 project slate. Working alongside Tricon Foodservice Consultants, KCCJ outfitted kitchens for five hospitality lounges, a premium GA bar and varied concessions.
The firm also kept its hand in the hotel sector, continuing to deliver high quality fit-outs for the Travelodge chain, including in sites at Poole, Dorset and Sandwich, Kent.
KCCJ’s commercial director, Kerry Slatter, took to the stage to collect the trophy and said: “This is a lovely recognition by all of the suppliers we work with for everybody in our team. It’s been tough for everybody and the award is a recognition of the hard work of not only our team but that of the industry as always.”
