No.11 Cavendish Square extends catering contract with Ampersand
The new 3-year contract has a combined total turnover value of £5.4m and will see Ampersand continue to provide catering and hospitality services at the venue. Ampersand first won the No.11 account 8 years ago; the new contract term will see the partnership reach 11 years of service.
Jonathan Morris, Commercial Director of No.11 Cavendish Square said: "During the process all four caterers came back with impressive pitches, but Ampersand raised the stakes and we are delighted to continue working in partnership. We were won over by Ampersand’s diverse range of extra touches, which will see No.11 rival the catering and hospitality services of the best boutique London hotels. Going forward we want No.11 to be seen as a truly landmark event venue that brings affordable luxury to clients events.”
"Working with my new Director of Operations Martin Dibben, we set out to identify the ‘wow’ factors that would ensure that we retained this prestigious contract and we are thrilled to have done so,” explained Paul Jackson, Managing Director of Ampersand. "Gary Devereaux, our executive head chef, has created bespoke menus that reflect the trends found in the best restaurants right now – themed tasting dishes and small plates for example – ideas that really work for canapés and receptions with a difference. Above all our emphasis is on affordable luxury supported by well trained and enthusiastic five-star staff”
No.11 Cavendish Square dramatically combines the period features of the Georgian era with contemporary designed rooms. The venue is available for product launches, summer and Christmas parties, gala dinners, receptions, meetings and conferences.
