Gather & Gather has secured a new catering and hospitality contract with London Metropolitan University.
The two-year deal, which was won in a competitive tender, began on 1st August, is worth £1.5million, and will see Gather & Gather bring its innovative menus to multiple outlets across the university’s two campuses on Holloway Road and at Aldgate, near the City of London.
The provider will support the university’s culture and future food strategy as the campus locations evolve. This new academic year, students, employees and visitors will see fresh concepts such as street food vendors through Gather & Gather’s newly formed partnership with Karnivalfood, plus a fresh artisan coffee concession.
Elizabeth McGowan, head of events, hospitality & business services at London Metropolitan University, said: “We look forward to working collaboratively with Gather & Gather to bring our university community exciting food experiences on campus. Providing the nutrition needed to support our learning community, whilst of course being great value for money.”
Rob Fredrickson, managing director for Gather & Gather, said: “It’s fantastic that Elizabeth and the team share our vision and aspirations around the positive impact brilliant food and drink experiences can have on people – bringing them together whatever the occasion or location. We’re introducing fresh and exciting concepts to the two campuses and together we will make a real difference to university life and the community.”
