Kudos has been enlisted as the new catering partner at the Floral Pavilion Theatre in Merseyside.
The iconic Floral Pavilion Theatre and Conference Centre is in New Brighton, along the Mersey estuary with views of the Liverpool waterfront.
It has an estimated visitor count of 230,000 each year. The venue has capacity for more than 800 people for private and corporate events as well as musical theatre, concerts, comedy and pantomime.
Kudos is taking over from Carringtons Catering by providing "exceptional food as a supporting attraction, creating themed and seasonal menus in line with theatre performances and entertainment".
The caterer has introduced "more wholesome menus across its retail offering, events and pre-theatre dining, with all seasonal ingredients being sourced locally within 60 miles of the venue".
Its menus aim to "highlight healthier options including a wide variety of new juices, sandwich alternatives and creative salad boxes". Both hospitality and retail menus will not be bought in, but made fresh on site each day.
For the retail element of the café, Kudos is focused on creating "a distinct venue identity, emanating everything that is wonderful about the experience at the Floral Pavilion". The rebranded Floral Café is "a reflection of the more contemporary, bright open space created to be more attractive to wider audiences".
