Elior UK enters a new five year contract with Kingston University

Leading contract caterer Elior UK has been awarded a new five year catering contract with annual sales of £5m a year by Kingston University London. The agreement is one of the largest university catering contracts in the UK, and will see Elior catering for over 20,000 students and just over 2,000 employees.

As part of the deal Elior, in partnership with the University, will be investing to improve facilities at three of the four campuses – Penrhyn Road, Kingston Hill and Knights Park.

The refurbishment will bring with it a host of contemporary restaurants and café bars to help create social hubs for students and staff. All four campuses will benefit from Elior’s full concept range, including the newly award-winning concepts Beak St. Chicken and GO’SASA deli.

Arran McDowell UK HR Director at Elior UK, said: “We’ve enjoyed an excellent relationship with Kingston University during the past 17 years – which this sizable contract renewal is testament to. We now look forward to building on that relationship further, with an even stronger offer. One that provides not just quality food, but quality experiences that enhance students’ satisfaction and keep them coming back for more.”

Bruce Armstrong, dean of students, said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our strong relationship with Elior and are excited about seeing campuses across Kingston University transformed as a result.”
