Catering in Further Education Colleges is a specialist fast-paced field, constantly moving with new food trends and requiring particular expertise in meeting the needs of a very mixed community of students. Across our portfolio of colleges we cater for students studying academic subjects and vocational courses. Some of our customers are full time students, others attend part time, some attend evening classes. Food is in demand at all times of day, not at set times, as grab&go, as traditionally served meals, as café offers. Flexibility is the key, and so is value. Our price points must compete with the best High St brands - and for a significant proportion of students be within the range of free meals budgets. It must be food that is contemporary, exciting, easy and fast, worth staying on campus for, and it must be healthy food. This is the combination of things we achieve for all the colleges we serve at Taylor Shaw.
As a specialist in catering in education we have dedicated teams which give very strong support to our front line on-site staff, to ensure that our quality of service is maintained at the highest standard and our offers remain fresh, innovative, and in tune with evolving student tastes and expectations.
And vitally we are skilled and experienced in working successfully with clients to help them change and maximise the value of catering services as they meet the challenges of amalgamating colleges to achieve greater cost efficiency.
