Wilson Vale has won a catering contract with Broadway House, a leading conference and meetings venue in the heart of Westminster. Under a one-year contract worth £250K in annual turnover, the independent caterers will take over from Sodexho Prestige on 2nd January 2012.

A team of five Wilson Vale staff will provide catering services, ranging from working lunches and informal buffets to canapé receptions and fine dining. The emphasis will be on fresh, contemporary food, made and served to the highest of standards by the on-site team.
David Vaughton, venues director for EEF Venues, said: “We care a great deal about the food we serve to our customers at Broadway House and across the EEF Venues group. It’s one of our USPs, so it was vital that our chosen contract caterer shared our passion and vision for food and understood fully its ability to make or break a customer’s experience. Wilson Vale is a welcome addition to Broadway House and we look forward to growing our business with their talented and responsible approach to catering.”
Andrew Wilson, co-founder and managing director of Wilson Vale, said: “This is an extremely prestigious client for us, right in the heart of Westminster. We have been talking to them for some time now and we are absolutely delighted that our fresh food focus, our ethos and experience within the conferencing sector have helped them to reach this decision.
“The meetings and conference sector is an extremely competitive marketplace, particularly in London where there are so many great venues. Food is a major selling point and we look forward to working with Broadway House to develop the business, offering great food and service standards.”
