Independent contract caterer Bartlett Mitchell has announced three new deals with professional service businesses based in London and Manchester.


The new contracts contribute to the more than £25 million of new business won by the company over the past six months.


More than 60 new employees will service contracts for the law firms Freshfields in Manchester, and at White & Case and the financial services company Man Group in London.


Contract lengths have not been specified for the individual clients, but Bartlett Mitchell says that they range from three to five years in length.


The Freshfields contact, servicing the client’s newly built Manchester-based offices, is a first for Bartlett Mitchell in the city and also the first ‘Magic Circle’ law firm in the caterers’ portfolio. Bartlett Mitchell is providing café, hospitality and free issue services for the company’s 550 employees.


Both White & Case and Man Group contracts are based in the heart of the City of London. Bartlett Mitchell will provide restaurant, café and hospitality services for both clients, along with a newly designed client lounge at White & Case.


Ian Thomas, CEO of Bartlett Mitchell, says that the three new deals demonstrate “our ability to work with a broad range of partners and clients”.


“We are able to work with our clients to ensure that we create offers which represent their culture and values. These three very different contracts are testament to this. These new relationships will create even more career development opportunities for our existing team and attract new talent to join our business.”
