Blackpool-based Caterware has been appointed to design, supply and install throughout the entire £18m Mill Farm stadium complex in nearby Wesham, which will be the base for football team AFC Fylde.

Previously the dealer has twice been hired to design and install kitchens and fast food kiosks at Manchester City’s Etihad stadium.

Caterware’s MD, Mark Drazen, commented: “Even from the initial discussion stages surrounding this project with Mill Farm it was clear that their ambitions were unlimited.

“There is a genuine intention to create the high quality level of facilities that appear at iconic venues, such as The Etihad Stadium, but on a smaller more localised basis.”

Bevan Middleton, food and beverage manager at Mill Farm, said: “Caterware was selected due to its vast experience within large scale stadia and venues, having recently completed many multi million pound projects throughout the UK.

“Combined with its history of working alongside many well-known high street restaurant concepts and brands, it soon became evident Caterware was the perfect partner supplier.”

The development is due to launch this June.
